    Locavore's review

    Published: 2015-08-06, by .

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

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

    "Eat fresh, local, and in season"


    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.


    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 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!

    RECENT UPDATE: we've fixed the issue that was preventing some Android users from creating new accounts.

    PREVIOUS UPDATE: you asked for more social, and here it is.
    • Your name/alias/email is *not* sold, distributed, or used for anything other than Locavore app activities. See User Agreement (
    • Afraid of Big Brother? Use an alias. Or, download Locavore Retro…but, you won’t be able to promote your local farms & food with photos, report to us when information is incorrect, or encourage farmers by telling them they’re great. Life is full of trade-offs.

    LOCAVORE: It’s your seasonal, local food network.
    Locavore makes searching & sharing in-season, local food a breeze by mapping farms and farmers’ markets, and what is in season based off your location.

    1 - Share photos about local, in season food & sellers
    2 - Locate farms and farmers’ markets near you
    3 - Browse what’s in-season and soon to come
    4 - Find who is selling it and where
    5 - Get details about your local farmers’ market
    6 - Post what you ate locally to Facebook

    Recipes soon to come…

    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.
