Bored with the products at your farmer's market? Perhaps the choices in say, California, would be more to your liking. Foodzie, an online farmer's shop, connects consumers with producers of top-quality artisan foods from across the country. About 30 sellers have opened shops on the fledgling site, which drew 43,000 visitors in the past month. "You get a similar experience to a farmers market, when you get the opportunity to meet farmers, but it is much more scalable and you get a better selection," said Rob LaFave, a Foodzie co-founder.
