Local Food at Your Fingertips

This article was originally posted Friday, June 28th, 2013 on FoodDay.org. We’re so excited to partner with them!

What if everyday food decisions affected our health, environment, farmers, and neighbors? Silly question, right? You already know this is true. The better question is: “How can we make sure our actions improve our health, contribute to a healthy environment, support local farmers, and make sure no one is hungry in our community?”

That’s exactly why we built Farmstand.

Farmstand Activity Our dream is to connect every community with locally grown food. Whether it’s from a farmers’ market, CSA, grassroots campaign, restaurant, food pantry, or online delivery service, we’re taking a simple tap on your phone and turning it into finding fresh food, preventing food waste, and feeding those in need. We have over 8,600 farmers’ markets listed and exciting updates are on the way.

You are the hero.

We’re not trying to invent a new community – you already exist. We’re building an app that helps all of us make a greater impact together. The content is contributed by regular people like yourself who want to make a difference. Find a local farmers’ market, take photos within the app, and share them on Facebook and Twitter to spread the love and awareness of healthy food. We’re excited to announce that you’ll soon be able to use Farmstand to find Food Day events near you.

Grab Farmstand for iPhone or use the web version on Android and other devices. We’ll post more information on our blog, Facebook, and Twitter.

We hope you’ll join us in celebrating healthy, affordable, and sustainably produced food.
