Local Carrot – Fresh Produce In Your Neighborhood

Santa Clara, California – After months of hard work and nurturing, Garden Produce Exchange is proud to announce that the Local Carrot iPhone app has launched. Today’s launch of Local Carrot is our first step towards creating a place for local gardeners and fresh food lovers to buy, sell, and swap homegrown produce. The Local Carrot iPhone App is the fastest and easiest way for consumers looking for healthy, locally-sourced produce to connect with home gardeners who have surplus goods such as vegetables, fruits, herbs, seeds, eggs, honey, edible flowers, mulch, and compost.

Are you a home gardener with more vegetables than you know what to do with? Is fruit falling off your tree and rotting on the ground? Don’t let good, healthy food go to waste! List your surplus produce on Local Carrot and sell, share, or trade it with health and budget conscious people in your neighborhood looking for fresh, locally-grown foods.

Gardeners and Growers can:
* Safely list surplus produce you have available and would like to share, sell, or trade. We do not reveal your address and you decide how and with whom to swap
* Contact local growers and consumers interested in buying, trading, or selling home grown produce
* Create a personal profile to let others know a little more about yourself and the produce you grow
* Add photos of your garden, produce, and the meals you have made using foods you have grown or swapped
