Do you need vegetables and fruits? There are producers who take them to you

In Loco brings together those responsible for various programs to promote local production and consumption and reveals a list of producers who deliver baskets of agri-food products

Do you want fresh fruits and vegetables, straight from the garden? Then you can buy them from local producers in the Algarve (and beyond) that they take them to your doorstep or hand-deliver them to a central location.

The In Loco association mobilized the teams of the Leader-DLBC, Prove, 100% Local and Prato Certo projects, all of them from this local development association, to «bring together and make available to people and organizations all the contacts of its national producer exchange, baskets and markets”, in which it intends to be a response to the limitations caused by the fight against the Covid-19 epidemic.

On the way, the association «contacted several producers in the Algarve with availability for direct sale to the public or delivery of agri-food baskets in certain places in the Algarve's municipalities. This is about helping to facilitate access to small production, offering an alternative to buying vegetables in supermarkets», illustrated In Loco (see which ones in the list below).

Those who do not live in the Algarve can also find information about producersOn baskets is about markets throughout the country, in the O Prato Certo project database of the Algarve association.

“The situation of Pandemic experienced due to Covid-19 and the recently decreed State of Emergency, forced a change in the daily lives of populations, with implications at various levels. With the closure or limitation of hours of commerce, markets and fairs, many agricultural producers in the region found themselves faced with the need to sell their production», framed the association.

"On the other hand, the need for social isolation and individual protection for the purpose of containing the spread of the virus, limited citizens' freedom of movement and changed the conditions of access to products and services," he added.



This led In Loco to launch this initiative, which in the Algarve has «the support and direct mobilization of producers in the region and involves two actions to promote short food circuits».

First, the “reactivation of the distribution of agricultural baskets. They are now being sold in Albufeira, Olhão, Portimão, Lagos, São Brás de Alportel and Silves. Consumers can buy small or large baskets of seasonal or organic products for amounts ranging from 6 to 20 euros».

On the other hand, there will be the «disclosure of a producer exchange in the center of the Algarve. To reinforce the response of the baskets, extending it to other municipalities, contacts of producers in Albufeira are being made available, Faro, Loulé, São Brás de Alportel and Tavira, so that the consumer can buy vegetables and fruits from the farmer, without intermediaries».
