Military veterans create online farmers market
Late in 2019, a group of military veterans in the Fox Valley banded together to sell their products. Originally, they hoped to open a retail store but then Covid-19 hit. Like many things in the past year, they took it online and created a virtual farmers market called the Camo Co-op and they now bring the goods to their customers.
Most of the 8 owner/members met through entrepreneurship training offered by the Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton. The Innovation Accelerator for Veterans helps vets create and run their own businesses.
