Happy with their order, Christy and Lilah Talbott of Richmond, VA leave to the Fall Line Farms pick-up point at Bon Air United Methodist Church, in Richmond, VA, on Thursday, May 5, 2011. This is one of several pick-up points in the Richmond, VA area. This local food hub offers a wide variety of household food staples and specialty items. The difference from traditional co-ops is that members can pick their customized orders from an ever changing inventory of fruits, vegetables, meats, soaps, eggs, cheeses, flowers, honey, pastas, sauces, syrups, baked goods, mushrooms, flour and grains. Suppliers post what they have on a Lulus Local Food online listing and customers can make their selection. Every Thursday suppliers deliver orders to, one of several pick-up points, designated by the customers in or around the Richmond area. USDA Photos by Lance Cheung.
