In communities both big and small, farmers markets provide an easy way to purchase fresh and local goods from the farmers themselves. However, the biggest drawback is the limited window of opportunity to get to the farmer's market, which often take place during limited time frames, like a few hours on the weekend or one evening during the work week. This means that farmer's market aren't always accessible, which pushes people to do their shopping at supermarkets instead. Luckily, a coffee shop owner invented a unique way to make shopping at the farmers markets a much easier experience: She's putting the market online. 

Ana Jakimovska launched a website called WildKale, labeling itself as the “Online Farmers Market.” How does it work? The process is incredibly simple. To begin, you simply enter your zip code. Then, consumers can view local farmers that are selling and delivering to their area. Once you place your order, your items can be delivered as quickly as the very next day.
