A trend that is picking up steam all over the nation has a strong foothold in Central Oregon. Nicolle Timm is the owner of an online purchasing program called Central Oregon Locavore: “Central Oregon Locavore is basically an online farmers' market, where customers can purchase locally produces products from local producers." Timm says consumers can go online and view the products, make their purchase and then the product is delivered to a central location every other week. "Right now we have it set up as a membership system. And that's just because it makes it simpler for regulations. This is all ODA [Oregon Department of Agriculture] licensed. So it's $10 a year to be part of Central Oregon Locavore and then you can order an unlimited amount of things." Timm says they have about 45 vendors right now and around 300 members. She expects those numbers to grow as summer approaches. You can get more information at the Central Oregon Locavore website; you’ll find a link on our “Links” page.
