Real Economy Co-op

Real Economy is more than just a way to buy or sell food. It’s a collective of people who want to transform the current food system. Whether it’s hyper-low supermarket prices that eat into farmers’ livelihoods, or food-banks that many find an undignified response to a worsening crisis, we want to change the status quo so the food system treats everyone with respect. The Real Economy Cooperative is an alternative to supermarkets, we encourage people to form buying groups to source food from local producers to create a food system that is fair to all.

We are a not-for-profit, cooperative, joining buying groups across the city and encouraging new enterprises to form, where people grow, make and do things for each other.
