What you need to know about using LocalLine

Local Line was created so that farmers, vendors and Farmers Markets have the ability to set up an online store. We are about to set up an online Farmers market so that you can continue with some sales during this COVID 19 crisis.

Details you need to know:


Some general information for those of you who have not had any previous experience with Local Line.  We will provide further updates as they become available and encourage you to reach out to SGBFM Board with any questions you have! We are hopeful this will be a successful option for all of this winter as we continue to adapt and navigate the challenges of doing business and serving our customers during Covid-19.

  • in approximately 5 days  SGBFM will have a Local Line account set up and will have provided them with email contact information for all the vendors who have signed up

  • they will send a link directly to you showing you how to set up your store in time for the Market to open Nov 1

  • SGBFM will have a “Farmers Market” URL with Local Line and when customers visit the site they will be able to select a store for each participating vendor

  • vendors can edit their own store at any time so far as products, qty available, min order, price, photos, etc

  • if a vendor is not available one week, you can “close” the store as long as no orders already accepted for the week.

  • You also have the option of arranging your own pickup or delivery.

  • PLEASE NOTE:  if as an example a vendor receives only a few orders one week, and even if they are located outside of Midland, they still must deliver the products/order to the market pick up location on Sunday morning

  • you can determine which payment types you accept (e-transfer - Square - Stripe)

  • if vendors use Square/Stripe - higher % (2.9 I think)  plus .30 per transaction

  • price to vendor $23 per month

  • SGBFM will ask vendors to commit to an initial 3 month period which is payable upfront

  • this price will potentially be lowered if the market and vendors are able to commit to a certain length of time and minimum number of vendors - this will be revisited after 3 months

We require an up to date application as soon as possible so that you can be included during the startup
