Why

Buying local is better

We believe diverse local economies with small, non-franchised, local businesses and responsible consumers at their heart, generate plenty of benefits:

Health

There is nothing as healthy and tasty as eating fresh, local produce. Also, from a psichological perspective, frequent social interacting makes us live longer and happier. Besides, local businesses thrive around green areas where people come together to enjoy nature and its healing properties. 

Environment

Local production and consumption means less transport, less energy, less water, less packaging, less CO2 emissions. Besides, the traditional varieties sold are more adapted to local climates and conditions.

Fun

And on top of it all, buying from neighbors is a lot more social, personal, humane and … fun! 

Community

Vibrant local economies nurture the social fabric of communities, helping us build deep, lasting relationships, a sense of belonging and of purpose. Moreover, they preserve local traditions and cultures.  

Employment & wealth

Small local businesses create a lot more jobs than multinationals, employing vulnerable groups, keeping wealth within the community, reatining talent and creating local development opportinities, and therefore equity and social justice.
