Check Out Veggie Trader for local produce

OK, so your dream is to be a farmer, but just like Eva Gabor you can't give up the city life.  Fear not though because Veggie Trader is here.  Basically set up like craigslist, but for fresh produce, it's a way to barter/sell your extra backyard or windowsill crop and find something that you may need.  How cool is this?  But be careful, if this takes off, pretty soon we'll have enough fresh local vegetables for everyone and then who knows what that will bring.

Check it out.

Cool! This reminds me of something related I recently saw-- a website in Seattle that matches up gardeners with homeowners who are willing to share their backyards (http://www.urbangardenshare.org/?p=home).

I just read your post about Veggie trade.

This is a cool way to over-come the (food) crisis. You grow your own veggies and the ones that can not be eaten by you and your family can be sold, to generate a little extra income.

You could do this on Craigslist, but since Veggie Trader is focussed on vegtable trade, it's more likely that you are successful when you try to sell your veggies here.
