NYC Farmers Market Locator

githubThis app is a mashup of the Google Maps API and the State of New York Open Data API. It allows two ways to search for a nearby farmers market: geolocation via the browser or searching for a specific address or zip code. It shows farmers markets within a 1 mile radius of the given location on the map, while a column of cards gives information on each market, such as schedules, a link to open a native mapping application if on mobile device, and website (if any). It is completely responsive and mobile-friendly. Many future features are planned!
