Hi, I am considering creating a marketplace where local farmers can sell their organic produce to customers.

I need to know, ASAP: Would you buy organic food via online marketplace? Why or why not?

The first thing to comes to mind is the freshness. I realize you could vacuum seal the food, but fruit and meat spoils. You would need to get a bunch of stud logistics guys to help your supply chain be as efficient as possible. Check competitors and see if you can release a minimum viable product for those early adopters out there.
