The Argus Farm Stop: A “local-only” farmers store

1 Like

The Argus FarmStop in Ann Arbor, Michigan, is a farmers’ store, a new hybrid between a grocery store and a farmers’ market. Unlike a farmers’ market, the store is open 5 to 7 days per week, all year round. However, like a farmers’ market, everything sold is produced by local farmers and food artisans. Farmers’ set the prices for their products and stock their own items on the shelves and receive 70% – 80% of the selling price of the items to cover operating costs for the store.   Other farmer’s stores are now popping up in other communities, providing an important new way for local food producers to sell their products at a higher price and with less work that other market channels.
