Hyperlocal Market: Connecting Local Growers With Local Customers

The Hyper Local Market is a brilliant idea: it lets low-scale, local food growers and producers sell their products online to the people closest to them. The idea was conceived by Kayleigh Thompson. I love the very simple yet professional packaging and labels used.

The Hyperlocal Market platform is an online food market for Londoners to find and buy local food from producers and makers. If you are a seller simply become a member, upload your products and sell them to your neighbours.

Buyers can type in their postcode and browse the food that is being made and grown in their area. Customers can select a product, and pay with PayPal or cash, then collect from the producer.

Hyperlocal Market aids the exchange of food and information with local people as well as seeing where your food is made. If you are growing or making food yourself why not exchange it with someone else?

All participants are encouraged to comply with the Food Standards Agency and their local council.
