Business Wire

DOVER, Del. -- March 26, 2013

Windows 8 users can now take advantage of the popular Delaware Fresh
farm-market location app from the Delaware Department of Agriculture. The app
is now available for all Windows 8 devices, from mobile phones and tablets to
Windows 8 desktops, joining existing iPhone and Android versions. The app was
developed by Delaware Interactive as part of the Delaware eGovernment
Initiative. This is the first Windows 8 application for the state of Delaware,
continuing the eGovernment Initiative drive to bring state information and
services to Delawareans. The app is free and available for download at
http://www.apps.delaware.gov.

The Delaware Fresh app provides an interactive map of farmers’ markets,
agritourism spots and other public farm operations across the state,
highlighting specialty locations such as Christmas tree farms during those
seasons. It provides market names, addresses, phone numbers, and hours of
operation. The app includes a listing of just what each market has to offer.
If the market has a website, the user can easily click to that site through
the app.

"This app is a great way for Delaware residents and travelers to instantly
find the best local vegetables, fruits, meats and other products close by,"
said Delaware Secretary of Agriculture Ed Kee. "It's connecting our tech-savvy
consumers with the best Delaware farmers have to offer."

“We’re committed to creating new and convenient eGovernment tools for
Delaware,” said Greg Hughes, Director of the Delaware Government Information
Center (GIC), which leads eGovernment efforts in the First State. “Governor
Jack Markell has directed us to look for ways to make government more
efficient, effective and open. Mobile apps and eGovernment tools like Delaware
Fresh help us meet that goal.”
