Online Farmers Market
In this Dec. 19, 2013 photo, a thermometer checks the temperature of an incoming shipment of gluten-free soul food from Grease Box at the Good Eggs warehouse 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. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg)
