Soil Mate

Soil Mate is a relatively new website, started by Matt Gomez of Kelowna, BC, to help connect consumers with local farms and farmers’ markets across Canada and the US. It’s as simple as visiting the site and allowing it to use your address. Up pops a list of locations for purchasing local food (or wine) from farmers  across your province or state. You can specify the search options to only show organic, vegetables, CSAs, etc. It’s a great way to discover local food in your area.

If you’re a farmer and want to have your farm added to the site you can contact them to do so.

I hesitate to tell you this because I want to win, but they’re currently running a contest to win a year’s worth of local produce. Details are on the site.
