Next Generation Farmers Market
With a mission to support local farmers, Argus Farm Stop is a brick-and-mortar food retailer selling 100% locally produced food. Launched in 2014 by Kathy Sample and Bill Brinkerhoff, today Argus works with over 200 producers to keep shelves fully stocked year round. The farm stop consignment model ensures that 75 cents of every food dollar goes directly to farmers. In this podcast we explore what it takes to start a farm stop and how it can benefit your local food system.
