Why FareMarket

Man on a mission

I launched FareMarket in Spring 2020 because I believe healthy, local, sustainable living should be easy and accessible to everyone. That belief is the driving force behind our unique product offering, which includes more than 400 of the highest-quality, healthy, local, sustainable, and seasonal products in Arkansas.

It's also the reason FareMarket’s mission is to invest in new community-owned food businesses. For every paid Mutual Aid Membership, we donate free memberships and local food to underserved individuals or families.

My greatest hope is that FareMarket does more than save you time and money on your favorite local products. I also hope the service aligns with your values so we can build a more just world together.

That said, welcome to FareMarket. We can't wait to fare well with you!


The Peoples' Amazon

We’re the first to try this here. Online ordering and same-day delivery in a community of local food lovers. We've got a wide collection of high-quality and locally sourced products that are usually only found by shopping at multiple farm stands, boutiques, and farmers markets.

Like a lot of our vendors, we're still a small local business. I was an urban farmer in Downtown Little Rock for five years. I feel a deep sense of urgency to struggle against corporations for the fate of our planet. As you engage more with FareMarket, notice how we define freedom and political power, how the company hopes to move past the urban-rural divide and hyperindividualism, and how hierarchical institutions separate us from nature and fuel climate change.

We’re growing the market reach for small farms and food businesses in Arkansas. If you'd like a deeper understanding of our mission, goals, musings, and philosophy, visit the Cyborg Farmer Blog.

Humanity has passed through a long history of one-sidedness and of a social condition that has always contained the potential of destruction, despite its creative achievements in technology. The great project of our time must be to open the other eye: to see all-sidedly and wholly, to heal and transcend the cleavage between humanity and nature that came with early wisdom.
