Harvest Inc.’s purpose is to provide a year-round marketplace where local farmers, growers, artisans, bakers and entrepreneurs can consign their produce or products directly to the consumer. The year-round marketplace will offer vendors an additional retail sales outlet while the consignment structure is anticipated to yield higher profit margins for consigned than other retail distribution models. Higher margins, in turn, will facilitate producers’ sustainability and growth, while providing consumers access to quality, healthy, locally sourced food.
Harvest will hold supportive events at locations in the Newport, RI area to promote access to healthy food, agriculture and a thriving local economy through sourcing products locally and having a sustainable community. To maximize our impact, we may seek to collaborate with other community organizations in furtherance of the Corporation’s purpose.
