A learning community & tools to support local food systems to thrive
We begin with healthy soil. With organic farmers and growers proudly rising to tell their stories. With distributors ready to connect people with green, nutritious, fair and affordable products. With buyers who believe that better, more local 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 transactions 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 can connect 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 empowered 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.
