Food hubs - or online local markets - are local initiatives that bring people together to buy fresh food directly from local farmers, producers and suppliers.
Every week customers can order food online from local food producers before picking it up weekly at a local venue. All the food comes from an average distance of 25 miles, compared to the 600 miles with a supermarket.
Community is at the heart of the food hubs – they connect neighbours to farmers, neighbours to each other, and everyone to their food. It ensures your money reaches the right people; food producers keep around 80% of sales for every product sold, compared to 20-40% through supermarkets. Also, there is less food waste as all the food is ordered in advance.
