The project provides each vendor with their own shop and aggregates all products into a marketplace. The website is able to handle all commercial transactions and manage product shipping and delivery.
Q: How much does it cost to join Alberta Food Marketplace?
A: The cost for a 1-year membership to The Alberta Food Marketplace is $75 plus any credit card related transaction fees.

Q: How does joining Alberta Food Marketplace benefit my business?
A: At Alberta Food Marketplace, a team of professionals is working behind the scenes to help vendors develop a strong online identity. Additional services like targeted advertising, ongoing website maintenance, help with tech-related issues, as well as promoting your business on social media are just part of the package.
Q: What if I join and decide that Alberta Food Marketplace is not for me ?
