Are you looking to monetize your urban garden?
PopStore has the perfect solution.
Find out how the food you harvest can become a new source of income.
Urban agriculture is an increasingly sought after activity by citizens of large cities, and seen by some as the future of the food industry. Agriculture, which is no longer limited to the countryside and interior of the country, represents a more sustainable, environmentalist and informed alternative on the food’s origin, as well as how it is cultivated.
In Lisbon there are already hundreds of people who grow vegetables, fruit and herbs, in a total of 21 municipal parks, which represent around 850 plots in 9.5 hectares destined for agricultural production (read here). Some of the beneficiaries of these urban agriculture parks produce for their own consumption, while others look for ways to market their products.
Are you interested in monetizing your urban garden? PopStore has the ideal suggestion. With this web order system,, you will be able to sell the food you harvest while contributing to a more conscious and environmentally friendly food industry. Learn how by following these simple steps:
- Create a list of products and their prices in a spreadsheet, copy and paste the list into PopStore which will automatically generate a web order system. Create these lists periodically, on a weekly basis for instance, in order to guarantee that the stock is up to date and corresponds to the products you are producing in your urban garden. If you also intend on consuming the food you grow, include only the surplus in this list to avoid food waste.
- Share your PopStore link directly to your (potential) customers so that they can select the items they’d like to order. Restaurant businesses with a farm-to-table concept that prioritize local production, organizations, families – these are some examples of your potential customers.
- Deliver the items to your customers and collect payment. The digital sales process makes it possible to reduce resources and costs associated with selling at markets or via other establishments.
Turn your urban garden into a profitable business and help revolutionize the food industry with PopStore.
