Founded in 2019 Nabu Market is an online and mobile marketplace that helps you search and discover local farms and farmers markets. The US local food market is on the rise, and it’s predicted to grow 54% by 2022. Despite this market growth it's still difficult to source local or regionally grown food online, and find the same trust and transparency that you would get with a small local farm.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have noticed an interesting phenomenon, many farmers have been building their own online stores to serve their community. The restaurant industry shutdown in 2020 has created this third order effect on small local farmers who use to sell to restaurants as a main source of revenue. Many farmers across the United States have had to pivot their business models from a Business-2-Business model to a Direct-2-Consumer model. Because of this farmers have been struggling with balancing their farming operations and managing an online business. We have created a service to help farmers make their online transition frictionless.
Nabu Market is a unique experience that connects you closer to the source of your food by matching you with local farms around your area! Our mission is to democratize fresh nutritious food for local communities across the world.
