This bi‐weekly program starting Dec 14 (through Jun 2021) to connect customers with produce and other good things through a Covid-safe pick-up system at Taghum Hall.
Our goal: To link customers with food producers and crafters; To create a simple distribution system for local food producers and artisans over Christmas and until the world becomes a whole lot friendlier (and you can hug your local farmer again).
Taghum Hall hopes to assist our local producers to sell their products. This program is in direct response to COVID‐19, and our inability to host our usual monthly indoor winter markets. We will host TWO delivery‐drops in “holiday” December. This program aims to assist in creating a resilient food‐system, and help people to access healthy, affordable food.
How will it work?
Customers can browse supplier websites from our list and place and pay for orders online.
Farmers and artisans will pre‐package paid‐for items at their own location and drop them off at Taghum Hall.
All drop‐off and pick‐up activity will occur outdoors, with mandatory mask-wearing and hand‐sanitizing. Only customers will touch their pre‐bagged items. Taghum Hall has strictly followed all Public Health safety guidelines thus far, and will continue to monitor and adapt to changing requirements.
This program is community‐minded, connecting farmers and customers, and is run by volunteers. The project is gentle on the Earth by not contributing to packaging/shipping waste and allows farmers/artisans only one distribution trip to town. Is that a win-win or what?
See below to register as a vendor or a customer. There is a small subscription fee for customers and a small drop-off fee for vendors.
