Eric Wagoner , the creator of LocallyGrown, said that the initiative “…is best described as an online farmers market system where customers buy their produce online and come to one spot to pick it all up.” Originally developed for a farmers market in Athens, GA in 2002, LocallyGrown has expanded to 310 communities across North America, most of which are rural.
