Farmers Market Fairy
About this pro
A lot of local, produce delivery services and CSA's provide a random assortment of fruits and vegetables from Los Angeles farmers markets. Farmers Market Fairy does custom orders. So, if you're following a recipe or have specific needs/tastes, Farmers Market Fairy can satisfy those needs. Delivery schedules are also flexible and no weekly subscription is required. I am a huge fan of food in general, and by food, I mean really good food. The produce available at farmers markets in Los Angeles is of a much fresher and higher quality than that of super markets... including Whole Foods. I also love being outside and sharing my knowlegde of food with others. Eating locally is better for you, and it's better for the environment.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The pricing system is not that complicated. Vendors/farmers prices are always changing, but stay relatively the same. I have a list of what most items cost. Clients should expect to pay for all of the produce/items they want and then a delivery fee of approximately $30.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am constantly reading up on food and nutrition whether it's the newspaper, internet, or food writers.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I've been running a small tutoring company for years, but I'm not passionate about the SAT. I thought about the idea for years, but finally mentioned it to my friends. They couldn't believe I had waited so long to say something.
