FarmDrop is not just another marketplace or platform, we are a community you can count on. With small-scale farms and food producers at the center of our mission, we support local food producers with an easy-to-use online marketing tool, to better reach a new generation of consumers. We are working in Portland in partnership with Fairwinds Florist. Our goal is to increase the profitability of the local food producers that are keeping the fabric of our community food systems alive, vibrant and healthy.

• Buy local produce from a farmers’ market with a simple click

FarmDrop was developed in 2011 by George and Mary Alice Hurvitt of The Blue Hill Wineshop, and made possible by the generous support of the Community Health Alliance, now administered through Maine Farmland Trust. We cannot thank them enough for their leadership.
FarmDrop is a community-based project that supports the local food economy, working alongside Healthy Acadia’s Gleaning Initiative and Healthy Peninsula’s Magic Food Bus to ensure a vibrant economy and provide more fresh food to community members in need. We thank you for your participation!
