Fork to Fork is a Tasmanian online farmers market where customers can buy directly from farmers and producers. To purchase from Fork to Fork click here.
Fork to Fork started as many good ideas do....on the back of a coffee napkin.
In 2011 Alice Percy (CEO and Co‐Founder) and Natalia Urosevic (past Board Member and Co Owner Hill Street Grocer) sat down to brainstorm project ideas for Sprout.
An online farmers market was one of the ideas. Over the next 3 years the Sprout Tasmania team grew their network and started asking questions about the needs of producers. During their annual conference (Cross Pollinate) the need for a new way of getting produce to markets and a facility to sell online was discussed.
In late 2015, Nysha Munro (Project Manager) and Erika Avellaneda Celis (Project Manager) began as volunteers to get the online market place off the ground. By January 2015 a name was chosen and in June 2015 the Sprout Tasmania team with the help of 279 supporters raised $30,000AUD in start up funds on Pozible.
