Fresh Nation Expands Farmers Market Delivery To LA
In the latest, venture-backed startup to expand its services to Los Angeles, Fresh Nation, a startup offering up delivery services from local farmers markets, has opened up shop here. According to the startup--which is venture backed by Lightspeed Venture Partners and Lerer Ventures--it will begin delivering food from local farmers markets six days a week in the Los Angeles area. The company said it has trained shoppers who will buy products from local farmers, for same day delivery to consumers. Fresh Nation did not say which specific delivery areas in LA it will serve. The company charges a delivery fee for the service, but waives those fees on orders over $75.
