“We started working on this in February and that we were able to launch it June 24, I think it’s working. We have plenty of people coming back every week and doubling and tripling their orders. Farmers are coming back. They wouldn’t if they weren’t selling.”

Norris said the market is reminiscent of a smaller-scale terminal market from bygone days.

“It’s very 19th century,” she said. “And we’re under a highway underpass. The fact that we’ve talked to 27 unique buyers and half those people show up and increase their orders is positive.”
