Since farmers’ markets have been shut down for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis, local farmers are concerned about how they will be able to sell their produce, and locavores are wondering where they are going to be able to buy their local produce and value-added products.
GoFarm Hawai‘i has been building a list of some resources for farmers as well as Find Your Farmer, a list of farmers who are offering still offering access to food in non-traditional ways, such as through pick-up and drop-off. They have the information promoted on their Facebook and Instagram pages so that farmers can add their information.
They are both looking for farmers who have food to sell and building a resource for people to access food. GoFarm is also requesting any recommendations of services that can aid farmers in this time so they can add them to that list on their site.
