Market to Table
From the N&O:
A Durham, NC startup is trying to make it easier for restaurant chefs to buy local food. Mint Market launched on July 29 as an online marketplace for chefs to buy locally grown produce. Mint Market’s model is an online farmers market….but for wholesale.
How it works is quite simple: Farmers list their products on Mint Market….chefs buy on Sunday….produce is harvested on Monday….and delivered on Tuesday.
The Internet continues to offer unlimited opportunities for business startups. Mint Market seems like a great idea. The reaction so far – “Why hasn’t someone done this before?”
