We are Ali and Hannah, based in the Cotswolds and we have developed The Produce Market as a location-based marketplace to connect small scale producers of food and drink across the UK with local businesses and the public. Our aim is to create a ‘go to’ place for producers to sell their products and the same for buyers looking to find predominantly local produce alongside speciality products from farther afield.
An open access self-service platform from which we take no commission, this is a new way to build local food networks, support local communities and drive growth of small scale, low impact, sustainable food production UK up and down the country.
Our marketplace facilitates orders directly between buyer and seller through a single checkout to remove the middle man. This ensures the end retail or wholesale price all goes directly to the source allowing farms and small businesses to flourish and create a sustainable future for food production in the U.K.
By creating a single effective place to find producers of all sizes up and down the country we can also reduce the marketing spend required by small businesses from website design to social media advertising.
Working together we can change the food system for the better, make it more accessible and drive change towards a sustainable future.
