The Real Economy is more than just a way to buy or sell food. It’s a food cooperative for people who care about food and our food system. We’re committed to sourcing fresh and locally produced food as directly as possible from the people who grow and make it, and to giving them a fair price for their produce. You can read more about what we are trying to do and why here.
Find a Real Economy food club near you, and join up – it’s free and quick to do. You’ll soon be tucking into to some lovely fresh food from local producers and meeting new people. If you can’t find a group, why not email us.
We have a wide range of wonderful local producers offering a variety of fresh and local produce. We also have the Real Economy Food Hub that stocks store-cupboard essentials for everyday needs. Place your order using our simple webtool.
Collect your food from your neighbourhood drop-off point at the designated times. This may be someone’s home, a cafe, or a community space. Maybe your group could use this time to swap cooking tips or have a communal meal?
This is the fun part! Spend the next few days tucking into good local food from local producers and planning what you want to eat the next time! While doing so why not have a look at what is happening with our solidarity fund here.
