There’s never been more interest in eating locally produced food, and Ann Arbor’s Lunasa Market is offering a convenient way to do it. Created by Jane Pacheco and Dawn Thompson, Lunasa describes itself as an “online farmers’ market.” It’s a unique service which, for a monthly fee of $40, allows members to order goods from dozens of local producers for convenient twice-monthly pickup.
