The COVID-19 pandemic rocked our society in a way that we could never have imagined, along with harsh repercussions that left many business owners scrambling to adjust. A silver lining to the shutdown of businesses and farmers markets is the steady growth of collections of local produce, specialty products, and pantry items that are either delivered or picked up by customers around the county. 

Not only do these curated boxes and prepared foods give people easier access to products without having to venture into public, but businesses have an alternative way of selling their goods.
