Online Farmers Market
In this Dec. 18, 2013 photo, Good Eggs community dispatcher Vanessa Casey, right, hands an order to a Financial District customer in San Francisco. New online services are letting consumers buy fruits, vegetables, meats and artisan foods directly from local farmers and producers. Buyers can have their orders delivered or retrieve them at local pickup spots. These virtual farmers markets are changing the way people buy groceries and creating new markets for small farmers, ranchers, bakers and other food makers. San Francisco-based Good Eggs has built a fast-growing business connecting foodies and farmers in Northern California. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg)
