New window on the web
The farmer’s market Les Saveurs de la Vallée is proud to start the 2020 season by announcing the launch of this new website, made with heart by Edgar Web Studio.
The website offers a user-friendly and intuitive browsing experience tailored to the needs of the people of the Gatineau Valley and the exhibitors of the market. Readable on a large number of platforms, the site provides quick access to information and relies on content that goes straight to the essentials. For example, it offers visitors a drop-down home page showing the dates, opening times and address of the market, as well as the producers who will be present. It is also possible to find all the information to become an exhibitor or volunteer, as well as several news about the activities of the market.
“We are very pleased to be able to launch the new public market website before the start of the market and to make it easier for people to find information about the online market.” exposes Karine Lacroix, new project manager of the market. “In the context of the health and economic crisis in which we find ourselves, people seem to be realizing that the market is a good solution for valuing local businesses. This context also forces us to review our ways of doing things and increase our online presence. At the moment, the website does not allow online shopping, but if the enthusiasm is there, it could be an addition for 2021!”.
The website is intended to be a showcase for producers in the market. However, although it is now possible to get to know the exhibitors online, nothing beats a face-to-face meeting at the market! Exhibitors will therefore meet you at 67, rue Saint-Joseph, in Gracefield, from June 19!
The creation of a website for the farmer’s market was made possible thanks to the contribution of the MRC de la Vallée-de-la-Gatineau, the UPA section of the Vallée-de-la-Gatineau and the Canadian Agricultural Partnership through the Proximity Program of the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food of Quebec (MAPAQ).
