Blog

   
Search for local food producers in your area. Add your favourites that we haven't heard about yet — this is a community project!   Posts by Josh and Tanny (the creators of this site) on local eating topics and their experience as they start to eat more locally.    

This site is completely free. Anyone can search the map and read the forums, but we ask that you register to contribute new food suppliers or post to the forums (just to cut down on spam).
