Buy local, seasonal, organic food | Support your local community

Buying locally produced, seasonal, organic food is a great way to support independent businesses across the South West and its economy.

Buying food from local suppliers and having it delivered, means we get tastier and fresher food without clocking up the food miles (i.e. the food is transported less than if we went to pick it up in a vehicle).

The COVID-19 lockdown saw growing numbers of communities supporting each other, and helping to make the South West more food resilient in the process.  Bristol Food Union typifies this, it was launched to ensure that the city of Bristol stays fed during the pandemic.  Watch the Bristol Food Union video to see how they've risen to the challenge.

By reaping the personal benefits of shopping locally, we are supporting the South West's independent businesses and its economy. And if you buy organic, you're watching out for the welfare of animals, ecology, and fair working conditions too.

If all of us shop locally, we can help influence large manufacturers and retailers, and encourage them to make changes for good. Every single purchase you make can have a big impact on your local community. Whether it's buying a veg box, going to the local market, or supporting sustainable farming and fishing, your decision is being felt.
