    Locavore's review

    Published: 2015-08-06, by .

    A environmentally friendly app that helps you produce and farmers markets near you

    7.6
    • Lots of listings
    • What produce in season, where
    • User comments
    • Design a little bland
    • USA & Canada only

    "Eat fresh, local, and in season"

    THE VERDICT

    Locavore is all about living and cooking locally, mapping out exactly where and when you can get your hands on beautiful, seasonal produce on your doorstep. This environmentally friendly app pinpoints nearby farmer's markets and food producers, and shows you what foods are in season and where you can get them near you.

    A great app grounded in community spirit, and is currently active in the USA and Canada.

    THE PROS

    Once installed, the app will ask you your location so it can immediately pinpoint producers close to you (on the In Season tab), with the produce in season and how long you have left to get it fresh. I Ate Local displays comments from users locally, based on what they ate and where from.

    The Markets tab very usefully points out the farms, CSAs, and farmers markets in your area, each listing featuring the address, contact information, and available produce. Finally, the Browse button lets you browse by produce item or place from a long and varied list of produce.

    THE CONS

    The app's design feels a little dated and it's currently only active in the USA and Canada. It'd be great to see it in Europe too!

    Wow what a great tool! I did have to create an account to use from within the app, and despite what it says you do have to use your first and last name to create the account. Also finds location by city name (not zip). Was able to located a variety of farmers markets near me as well as the seasonal produce in my area. Thanks!

    Won't pull location even though permission is turned on, and won't let me search for my location. I can't get past registration to use the app.

    No crashes. But it does little more than provide listing of locations with no information, no dynamic features.
