Soko is a farmers’ market app that solves major pain points in discovery and payments for farmers’ market vendors and their customers. Soko helps shoppers discover local markets/vendors and order ahead to skip lines; meanwhile, vendors can communicate with their customers, share updates on what they’re bringing each week, and even conduct payments.
Soko is a spin-off from Ujama, a social and messaging platform for families and parents to connect with and support each other for babysitting requests, event invitations, and more. Soko leverages Ujama's code base, which is still being maintained.
Soko founded in 2020
