App My Life: Shop Local Farmer’s Markets With Your Phone by @chicmompreneur #VZWBuzz

If you have been a reader of my blog in the last few months, you know that I have a bit of an obsession with apps, with a new year and the growth of the blog, I have spent the last few weeks planning a new series for the blog, and App My Life just made a lot of sense.  Especially with the success of the last post, 10 Apps That Can Earn You Money!

Between running my business, home, and everything in between, anything that helps me to simplify my life, is a welcome addition into my home, family, or phone.  There are apps for everything these days, and I am taking full advantage of the support and flexibility they offer me.


Eating healthy is hard to do when you are on the go, unless you can afford to hire someone to shop for you.  Junk food just seems a lot more accessible sometimes than healthier choices. Grocery shopping feels like another chore by the end of the work week, and something I have to get motivated to do.

With Grubmarket, it can now be done from the comfort of your desk, sofa, or bed.  This amazing app allows you to support local farms, and businesses by simplifying shopping for healthier local foods with the click of a button.

  • Discover and support amazing local businesses in your community.
  • From local farms, to certified home kitchens and restaurants, you have a lot of options, from fresh local produce to delicious, and fresh meals.
  • Everything is direct from the farm to your door. Nothing from Grubmarket comes from a warehouse shelf.
