Online Farmers Market Brings The Farm To Your Door

  • Thursday, May 18, 2023

Market Wagon is an online farmers market, delivering fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables to a 15-county region of Tennessee and Georgia, from a variety of farmers including: Agraria Urban Farm in Hixson, Georgia MicroGreens in LaFayette and Dirt Poor Farm in Sweetwater.

Jackie Gray with Agraria Urban Farm specializes in growing fresh vegetables like lettuce, arugula, mustard greens, radishes along with microgreens and the "best honey you’ve ever tasted."

Georgia MicroGreens is a hydroponic farm growing microgreens and sprouts which pack 40 percent more nutrients than the adult plant.

Dirt Poor Farm's produce from the West family is organically grown on a small-scale 20-acre farm, everything from green beans, tomatoes and okra to potatoes and melons.

For farmers, partnering with Market Wagon means instant access to a delivery route which is otherwise cost-prohibitive, all without the time and expense associated with a physical farmers market.

Market Wagon’s service allows customers to browse locally grown products on their computer or smartphone throughout the week and place an order from multiple local vendors with one single checkout.

People can order from more than 35 of their favorite local farms and artisanal food vendors near Chattanooga who offer a combined 600+ items for sale each week. Customers don’t have to leave their homes because everything is delivered to their door every Wednesday afternoon in insulated totes using ice packs to preserve freshness. No shipping or post offices needed.

Market Wagon's mission is to enable food producers to thrive in their local and regional markets. By providing exceptional choice and service, people can know exactly where their food comes from. The online store contains everything you'd expect to find at a physical farmers market – local farm-fresh eggs, dairy, meat, produce, baked goods, and more.

Shopping requires no upfront fees or long-term subscriptions. Food is delivered in reusable, insulated cloth bags along with ice packs which also can be reused over again.
