A mobile app to carry a virtual farmers market in your pocket, now available for iOS and Android devices
Pittsburgh – June 3, 2014 –Penn’s Corner is a cooperative that connects western PA farms with consumers looking for top-quality local products. Penn’s Corner Farm Stand customers can now shop for local food on their Apple or Android device. The app allows Pittsburgh locavores to browse products from over 30 local producers and integrates seamlessly with the existing web version of the Farm Stand.
The app allows Penn’s Corner customers to browse various products that local farms have to offer, from fresh veggies to humanely raised meat to flavorful preserved foods. Customers can see which products are new and create a list of favorites for easy ordering. The app conveniently allows customers to add items throughout the order period so they don’t have to complete their order at once. Penn’s Corner also sends notifications and reminders to customers’ mobile devices about when ordering opens or closes, as well as weekly specials. Ordering is open every week from Monday at 1pm through Thursday at 2pm for delivery the following week.
The app makes shopping for local food more convenient to the consumer, and helps local producers gain access to buyers. A Wholesale version of the app is also available for chefs and grocers interested in purchasing, so please be sure to choose the Farm Stand, not Wholesale version of the App when downloading from the Apple or Google Play Store.
Penn’s Corner Farm Alliance is one of the first online markets to offer ordering via mobile app in the US. The white-label e-Commerce app was developed for local food hubs, co-ops, and online markets by Local Food Marketplace, LLC.
