Welcome to Allen Neighborhood CenterBuy Local. Eat Well.
Welcome to the Allen Market Place Exchange!
Mid-Michigan's Farm to Fork Connection
A project of Allen Neighborhood Center.
If you are a farmer, grower, food producer, chef, restaurant, caterer, grocery store, school, hospital, school, buying club, or food service professional interested in locally grown fresh foods, you are in the right place!
The Exchange connects buyers and sellers to expand our Michigan regional food network. There is no obligation to post products or purchase, and it only takes a few minutes to register and get started! (see sidebar at left).
How it works:
Farmers and food producers post items each week, and buyers shop online and place orders by 8pm each Monday and Friday.
Purchase notifications are sent to each seller and buyer the same day.
Farmers and food producers have the weekend to fill orders placed on Fridays and Tuesday and Wednesday to fill orders placed on Mondays.
Farmers and Food Producers deliver products to the Allen Market Place.
Buyers pick up what they have purchased between 9am and 5pm Tuesdays and Thursdays. This is a dynamic way to connect, talk shop, share successes and network with others in the food industry on a regular basis.
All receipts and orders are automatically generated and easily managed and maintained online 24/7– making bookkeeping a breeze.
