The farmer's market of the future

Northeastern Ontario farmers are using the internet to sell locally grown food in response to the closure of an Eat Local Sudbury grocery store. The new website "Click Fork" allows customers to order meat, produce and even maple syrup online, with bi-weekly deliveries servicing customers in Sudbury, North Bay, Cache Bay.

 

It's all done through an online ordering system called Local Line. Using Local Line, farmers pay a monthly subscription fee to use the platform. They upload their delivery information and drag items into their cart to be delivered. Currently, the company serves hundreds of farms in Ontario and dozens in B.C
