GREENSBORO — A Rockingham County group hopes to create an online farmers market where Triad-area restaurants and other North Carolina businesses could order local meat and produce online.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported that members of the Local Foods Coalition include about 40 farmers and other citizens. The group hopes to receive nonprofit status.

The coalition will model the virtual market from one developed in Rutherford County by Foothills Connect, which sells to Charlotte area restaurants.

The coalition also organized sustainability festivals in Reidsville, Eden and Mayodan this year to promote a local food economy.
