• Spring Salad Greens from Abingdon Organics
  • Strawberries from Bishop's
  • Farm Fresh Herbed Goat Cheese from Oak Moon Creamery
  • Dried Sweet Cherries from the guy at the JC Farmer's market (no signage, no business card)

Not pictured:

  • Toasted Rosemary Focaccia from Scratch
  • Sumatra from Cooper Coffee Co.


PS. After searching for each of these vendor's websites, I am struck that only 1 has a website or even a small little information page! People, websites are imperative! What do you think is keeping these small businesses from embracing the technology? Lack of knowledge? Perceived cost? This is something I would really love to help other small businesses with and I wonder what the barrier to entry really is!

    Oh my goodness I bought two strawberry plants from the dried cherry guy a couple weeks ago. They are doing wonderful. I don’t really enjoy cherries so I didn’t get any of those. JUst thought I would say hi.

    I really like your blog!

    As someone who works at a small business, I think many place don’t have web presence due to lack of time/resources – there is only so much time in a day, and only so much money that can be spent on employees, contractors, etc.. So, yeah. Just know that’s the case for me.
