- You have an online sales system tested and ready
- You can TELL us how you will manage your orders and communicate via email regularly
- You are prepared to collate orders appropriately by customer and storage type: Freezer – Cooler – Dry Goods
- We ask you not to charge a delivery fee. We will not charge for the distribution space and service.
- This is a collaborative, we-are-all-in-this-together model. As such, by participating farmers and vendors agree to the details in the attached Food Hub Farmer Agreements
If you offer something one of our PressBay tenants already sells, we may not be able to accommodate you. Please email for discussion.
Best to you all.
