Portland Farmers Markets
Wordpress, e-commerce community outreach site
The PFM operates world-class farmers markets that contribute to the success of local food growers and producers, and create vibrant community gatherings. They required a site that allowed users to quickly find the market times and locations in mobile and desktop environments. Other features they needed to have: it had to link easily with Google maps, provide a platform for the incredibly popular recipes section, showcase their seasonal offerings, give them a way to sell branded products and gift certificates online, give current vendors a one-stop for all vendor information and applications including access to their partner site ManageMyMarket.com, showcase events and market offerings, and provide a list of vendors so users could find the when and where of their favorite offerings. All of this had to be done in a CMS that could be easily updated and done in a responsive, mobile-friendly design.
