HRVST Market is a digital culinary marketplace that will provide marginalized-owned culinary businesses an opportunity to sell their products on our website.
About HRVST Marketplace
With the abundance of products on shelves at your local retail store, it’s challenging to figure out which products are from black-owned and Latino-owned businesses. Also searching out each business online and social media can be overwhelming and time-consuming. The key is to create a single marketplace to search and shop for all your favorite products from small food businesses. HRVST Marketplace solves this problem by bringing a variety of products and vendors together in one online marketplace.
