Perennia is pleased to offer Market Connector! This is a free service to farmers and fishers, food processors and entrepreneurs, and service providers catering to the agrifood and seafood sectors.

In the past we have offered free listings to connect hay growers to hay seekers, and the same for bees.  This new Market Connectors makes more connections possible such as:

  • crop byproducts that producers may want to sell and that food processors may be looking for
  • co-packing opportunities listed by folks with extra processing capacity and those seeking to increase their production
  • a platform for folks looking for on farm and professional assistance.

The registration process is simple and the steps to post hopefully easy and intuitive.

You manage everything – your postings and connections.  Perennia is simply providing this platform to connect people with things or services to sell and people who are seeking those things or services.

Interested in knowing when Market Connector is up and running to post a supply or service?

Please express your interest by emailing Lynne at

Perennia knows staying abreast of market trends and information can be a challenge.  We’ll make it a bit easier but adding in links to market information that may be of interest to you.
