Titus Bakery Brings Virtual Farmers Market to Westfield, Lebanon Posted on 01 Nov 16:05
Residents Can Now Buy from Local Farms and Artisans Online, Pickup at Titus Locations
Lebanon, Ind., November 1, 2017 – As farmers markets wind down for the season, people who live and work in Westfield or Lebanon will have more ways to order from their favorite local farms and artisan vendors. Market Wagon, an Indianapolis-based startup, has partnered with Titus Bakery to bring a virtual farmers market to the community.
The online farmers market experience allows customers to browse products on their computer or smartphone throughout the week, place an order from multiple vendors with one single checkout, and pick up their pre-packed order at the Titus Bakery locations on Thursday afternoons.
“We are very excited to be able to offer this to our community,” said Terry Rake, Owner of Titus Bakery. “We’ve always believed in supporting local vendors. We believe this online farmers market will be another great way for our neighbors who want to know where their food comes from.”
“This business is all about giving consumers more ways and more access to buy local,” said Nick Carter, co-founder and CEO, Market Wagon. “By creating a virtual farmers market that’s convenient for busy professionals and families, we are increasing the consumer reach for local farms and artisans. Ultimately, everyone, consumers, local farms and artisans all win.”
Carter launched Market Wagon in 2016 with the mission of “creating endless markets for local food.” More than 90 vendors and 1,000 products are available through the virtual farmers market already, with more joining each week.
Under the partnership with Titus Bakery, the first market day pick up will be Thursday, November 9th. Anyone wishing to order through for pickup must have orders placed online by midnight Tuesday, November 7th at http://indianapolis.MarketWagon.com
