A learning community & tools to support local food systems to thrive
We begin from the ground up. With farmers and growers ready to tell their stories proudly and truly. With distributors ready to connect people with products fairly and honestly. With buyers who believe that better weekly shopping decisions can seriously change the world.
Then we need a way to make it real. A way to empower everyone who grows, sells and buys food. A way to tell all the stories, to handle all the logistics. A way to turn transaction into transformation every day.
So we build an online marketplace that levels the playing field. It’s transparent, so it creates real relationships. It’s open source, so it’s owned by everyone. It scales to regions and nations, so people start versions across the world.
It works everywhere. It changes everything.
We call it Open Food Network.
We all love food. Now we can love our food system too.
Shopping - here's how it works.
Search our diverse, independent shops for seasonal local food. Search by neighbourhood and food category, or whether you prefer delivery or pickup.
Transform your transactions with affordable local food from diverse producers and hubs. Know the stories behind your food and the people who make it!
3. Pick-up / Delivery
Hang on for your delivery, or visit your producer or hub for a more personal connection with your food. Food shopping as diverse as nature intended it.
