The Local Foods Plymouth online market began in 2006 as a collaboration between the members and staff of D Acres of New Hampshire and the Plymouth Area Renewable Energy Initiative. It was able to get off the ground with support from a small start-up grant from the US Department of Agriculture.
The year-round online market connects local farmers and producers with buyers in Plymouth, New Hampshire and surrounding towns.
