The flavor, color and quality of produce allowed to ripen properly on the plant is superior to anything picked early and ripened artificially. Many fruits and vegetables in your megamart look nice enough, but lack the vibrant flavors of fully ripened produce.
Many of our friends and neighbors have gardens at home. Very often these gardens produce more than they need. Rather than let these wonderful extras go to waste, SquashCart wants to enable them to offer what they grow to the community. If you knew your neighbor down the street had fresh, ripe tomatoes available today, would you stop by there before you headed to the megamart? We know we would!
We love our local markets. We anticipate a minimal impact, if any, on these markets. The same people who go to the farmer's market now, will continue to do so. We are regulars at our local markets. The farmer's market works and will continue strong as ever.
We believe in transparency. We have no problem explaining our fees. We add a 6% transaction fee for all items purchased through the SquashCart market. Would it be easy to contact the seller directly and avoid the transaction fee? Of course, but we put our trust in community spirit. We believe that people will be so happy with the service SquashCart provides that they would be happy to pay the fee to ensure it remains available.
Many of our sellers will not have their own merchant accounts, and using the SquashCart market will ensure they don't have to get one. When you purchase online you are "reserving" that product from the farmer. It would be a shame to drive out to your farmer only to find the item you wanted was sold out.
