Has Anyone Heard of Vendor Hippo?



When you're traveling to a new city, it is always nice to visit and sample the local produce and other goods. I am doing some research on a good Louisville, KY Farmers' Market, and came across this site: Vendor Hippo.<---CLICK IT...

See their MARKET DIRECTORY Here
See their VENDOR DIRECTORY Here
See their REVIEWS Here

I can't wait to find out more about how this site works. If anyone has any information for us, please leave a comment below...

I hope to submit my 2 local Farmers' Markets from Carbondale today too. Why not sign your up too, and keep this site fun and full of as many locations as possible.

Thank you for your kind words.

I was a vendor myself for a number of years. While I did get tired of setting up a booth 5 days a week I could never lose my passion for the farmers markets and their vendors. I sold my company and started Vendor Hippo and I love what we are doing.

It's pretty simple really - we sincerely care about the industry as a whole and each and every vendor who is part of it. Helping them in any way possible is still a drive that wakes me up at night when I have new ideas.

We have gone through some growing pains this past year no doubt and we are learning more each day. Our current project is our Market Tour 2009 where we are traveling the region and shooting promotional videos for around 60 different markets!

We are looking for some help so if any of your viewers out there are interested in spotlighting there own local markets on one of our sites please let them know we would be happy to help.

Thanks again!
