Peterborough REKO Network - Calling All Farmers

Farms at Work logo

A Peterborough REKO Network is launching this spring and is looking for farm vendors. REKO networks give communities a new way to buy locally grown produce. Farmers will be able to sell directly to consumers over a shared Facebook group, with pickup happening at a third party location once a week. For more information visit REKO Canada, or contact the REKO Peterborough Facebook page for a vendor application.
