Fresh Food markets

April 2, 2020


Fresh food markets have taken a big hit from the pandemic. With strict social distancing measures in place, this makes it impossible for normally bustling markets to operate, and most have been temporarily closed as a result.

Possible COVOTS

  • Move brick and mortar stalls online, allowing shoppers to browse and purchase from their homes
  • Communicate with stallholders to arrange a single, unified delivery system for the whole market. This reduces the number of vehicles on the road and allows all stallholders to still get their product delivered
  • Set up a drive-through collection system, allowing customers to pickup their orders in their vehicles without human contact
  • Communicate with larger stores or supermarkets who may be looking to stock additional products during this period
