The New Consumer blog points us to a new site that they call an online farmers market. LocalFoodshop.co.uk helps UK residents find locally produced food and drink.

The site says:

The aim for Localfoodshop is to help you to identify your local suppliers of quality, fresh, seasonal produce. You buy direct, keeping your money in the local economy and supporting local farmers and artisan producers.

At Localfoodshop, 93% of the sale value goes straight to the producer. Compare this to the supermarkets! And the remaining 7% supports the social enterprise which runs the site, re-investing any profits back into the local food sector.

The site has just started but it works very well and makes simple sense for the producers and consumers.
