App offers online shopping for farmers markets

An application offers a way for people to shop online for produce and merchandise sold at farmers markets in Palisade and Fruita.

The WhatsGood app at allows people to shop the markets online. Orders are paid in advance. Vendors assemble orders for easy pickup at drive-through locations at the markets.

“This is a great opportunity for people to shop without going to the market,” said Michelle Gossage, market manager of the Palisade Sunday Farmers Market. “If you’re worried about being in a crowd or you simply want to pick up farm-fresh items quickly, this is for you. Give it a shot.”

Kayla Brown, executive director of the Fruita Area Chamber of Commerce, said she’s excited to offer online shopping at the Fruita Farmers Market. “Having the ability to connect more consumers with our local farmers will make a significant impact on our economy and local agriculture,” Brown said. “I always encourage everyone to support local. And now that can be done with the click of a button.”
