Starting this November, Farmgram will open our digital doors to San Luis Obispo’s first ever Online Farmers’ Market! Our mission is to make sustainably sourced and locally produced goods accessible and convenient.
Our website will allow you to fill your baskets with any combination and quantity of seasonal produce, freshly made artisan goods and all the ingredients you need to stock your kitchen. Then we deliver it right to your doorstep. We will also offer our DIY meal kits and themed boxes for convenient cooking at home.
Right now we are developing our online store and connecting with the countless number of local food producers and growers in the San Luis Obispo community in order to offer a comprehensive grocery shopping experience.
The three of us –Tyler Thomas, Adrian Godby and Tessa Salzman– have been working for almost a year on what started as a senior project. We got connected to the resources at the HotHouse in January and have been testing and developing our ideas surrounding growing the market for local farmers ever since.
Farmgram is just one piece to the larger vision of a strong, self sustaining and localized food system on the Central Coast. Our vision extends beyond Farmgram towards building a community deeply connected to the story of our local resources and food value chains. We see Farmgram as a way to begin cultivating the necessary relationships and fostering a culture where food can be grown, stored, processed, aggregated, distributed and consumed close to home. We are enthused about the potential for collaboration in the San Luis Obispo community, being surrounded by so many other great local food businesses already working to strengthen relationships.
