How do I setup a new account to sell produce for the first time?
If you’re listing on the food hub for the first time, give us a call here in the office at (707) 467-3238 so we can get to know a little more about you and help set up your account. Just like selling at a certified farmers market, we have a new producer registration packet and a few required forms – let us know if you have any questions a long the way.
Please allow 7 days for processing your registration before you plan to list produce for sale.
I’m just getting started. Is there really a market for fresh produce? Do you have advice about crop-planning?
Yes, definitely! Our sales have gone up almost 100% in the past year, and we’re expected to continue growing. Our staff works hard to help coordinate crop-planning between buyers and growers to ensure that we have enough supply and to help avoid any unnecessary gluts. In general, the biggest demand we see right now is for shoulder-season produce and crops that are available in winter & spring. To set up an appointment for a longer discussion just send us an email.
How do I get paid?
You can expect to receive a check in the mail from us about 3 weeks after a sale. We collect payments from individual buyers, so you can rest easy and plan on a consistent payment schedule without any hassle.
