What else is new for 2012? The LSU AgCenter’s MarketMaker. This Internet-based direct marketing tool is designed to put buyers and sellers of food items on the same page to help save time and energy. Whether you’re shopping for organic foods or you have fall vegetables to sell, this website
is the place for you.
MarketMaker serves as a central clearinghouse for commercial seafood products and specialty crops. So if you’re a buyer and you want blueberries, you can locate those growers.
When visiting the site it’s easy to see that progressive marketers have found a place to feature their items for sale, and those looking for specific food items spend a lot less time on the hunt. This website provides a place to put those looking for specific food items in touch with those who sell those items. Sellers need to be registered to sell on the site, but not buyers.
There is no fee to use the site as either a buyer or seller. Users do not buy or sell directly through MarketMaker; they use the system to identify, locate and begin interacting with each other so they can make the market themselves.
If you eat, you should be using MarketMaker
, because you can find a whole host of different locally produced fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, herbs, honey - you name it.
