You may already be in the habit of tweeting and Instagramming your visits to the farmers' market, but wouldn't it be great if there were an app to tell you best things to look out for, an app that could compile everyone's market recommendations for that day? Where you could see, in real time, what's happening at your local farmer's market — what people are buying, what they're making, what sales and specials are going on. Now there is. New iphone app Farmstand lets you quickly find your closest farmers' market and check in on everything that's happening. See a video of how it works below:
Farmstand is brand new, and it's free! The makers say their goal is simply to "make it easy to eat local." I'm anxious to try it out myself. (The Grand Army Plaza market they show in the video is actually my local Brooklyn market.)
