Signing up and using Local Food Nodes is incredible simple. Just create an account.
By signing up, and becoming a supporting member you at the same time become a part of co-creating the local food supply. Now how about that!? But first, we have a few simple terms you need to read, understand and accept to be able to enter and go totally local.
Signing up an account is free, but to be able to place an order you need to become a supporting member. Read more about membership here.
The products you order are directly from the producers. This also means you pay straight to the producers, always.
Local Food Nodes is never a selling part which means that the producers have all the responsibility for their products. How it is produced, what it contains and how it is packed and delivered. If you have questions about products, prices, deliveries, quality you need to contact the producer it concerns.
You can join as many nodes as you like and you can order from who ever you like, how often as you like, as long as you are able to pick up the ordered products from the delivery location on the delivery time.
