There’s an article in today’s Press Herald about the goals of Maine Street Marketplace initiative that’s meeting this week at USM.
Maine farmers, fishermen and others are working to create a new delivery system to connect customers with locally produced food and agricultural products.
The idea is to set up an online grocery store that would take customer orders for the wide range of produce, fish, meat, poultry, dairy and other agricultural products produced around the state. A warehousing and distribution system would be part of the venture, which may also include a retail store and commercial kitchen for food processing.
