We are pleased to introduce to you the company Marktschwärmer, which is part of the Edible Cities Network.
Marktschwärmer is an online shop where the customer buys directly from the producer in one of the 17 “Schwärmereien” in Berlin on www.marktschwaermer.de/de, there are no costs for middlemen or market fees.
On one day in the week the consumers fetch the fresh purchases then at a central place in their neighborhood and meet there the people, who produce their meal.
The movement already has more than 80,000 members, almost 1,000 regional producers, more than 50 hosts of local markets and a small team of dedicated Marktschwärmer in Berlin and Paris who connect these people.
In over 50 local “Schwärmereien”, many thousands of people shop differently. With each purchase they directly support almost 1,000 small and artisanal producers in their region.
You can find Marktschwärmer and many other initiatives on the EdiCitNet Marketplace, where you can exchange ideas with other interested people and companies. Register here: https://www.edicitnet.com/biz/
