Here's a question we sometimes get asked:

"Can I use Veggie Trader if I don't have a garden?"

The answer is "Yes!" In fact, we've set-up a special area of Veggie Trader where people looking for local homegrown produce can find neighbors with extra. It's called the Wanted section, and it's easy to use. Just post a Wanted listing stating what you are looking for, and then wait for a response. For instance, this fall you might post a listing letting people near you know you're looking for local apples. If someone in your area with a tree and extras spots your listing, they can contact you.

So even if you don't have a garden, you can give Veggie Trader a try!

You can set how long you want to display your wanted listing. Its a good idea to set your wanted listings to the maximum duration, which I think is two months. Also, why not extend the "You-pick" concept to individual households? I will be creating some wanted listings so I can go pick some fruit from my neighbors.
