The Food Assembly brings together people to buy fresh food directly from local farmers and foodmakers.

With our technology and support, everyone gets a better deal: communities get to know each other, farmers get a fairer price for their work, and you get locally sourced, unique produce: the most delicious food available!

Selling through The Food Assembly, farmers and foodmakers get 80% for every product sold, compared to the 15%-25% that most supermarkets offer them.

Three important facts about The Food Assembly:

  1. The food is produced by small-scale farmers and local food makers
  2. Producers set their own price; meaning that they are paid fairly for their work
