About this app

The freshest food comes straight from the farm, and We Eat Local leads you to where you can eat it and then find out exactly where it was grown or made.

Uncover real paddock to plate deliciousness at some of the city's best local eateries, retail spots and farmers markets. See exactly where your food has come from: use the app to find the person who grew your food, and see why everyone is talking about them. Taste real food prepared beautifully and with love, using locally sourced ingredients.

You can earn nice surprises just by checking in, reviewing or rating local food places you visit. Each month, using the app puts you straight onto the leaderboard and into the running for sought-after freebies.
• Tasty treats - Share in monthly rewards that you can put straight into your mouth. Who doesn't love the thought of that?
• Show off a bit – Out-score your friends and show off your local foodie smarts by reviewing places that go the extra mile to do the right thing.
• Get that warm gooey feeling – Knowing that every time you eat at a place on the app, you're helping local farmers and traditional artisans and their families to push back a bit against the big food giants.

Food is a social thing, so share that deconstructed raw chia bowl with a friend or invite someone new to the app to earn you both extra points. (Hey, if you win an avocado, you could put it down as a deposit on a house!)

We're always looking for more gorgeous local food places to eat at, so we've included a way for you to tell us about new spots that you reckon we should add. If they're sourcing their ingredients from farmers and artisans on the city fringes, or farther afield (within a long walk or a short drive), we'd love to hear about them, and so would loads of other We Eat Local app users. You could become famous. No, seriously, it has happened to other people before.

The app is free to download and use. And we hate those annoying popup ads as much as anyone. Breathe.

• Showcase your commitment to local food to people who really want to find you. 7 in 10 Australians want to know where their food comes from: now you can give them the answer they've been looking for.
• Offer rewards to loyal customers or use tasty treats to attract new ones. (But not in a creepy way, ok?)
• Yes, there are free and paid versions of listings on the app. Your listings can look awesome or embarrassingly sparse, it's up to you, but all are welcome.
• Manage your listing on your own customised dashboard. Look beautiful and feel accomplished.
• Producers and artisans have full control over where their products appear. If you don't supply to someone any more, you can remove that product from their listing, no questions asked.
• Listing signups, our Privacy Policy and anything else you'd like to know are all on our website www.weeatlocal.com.au and we are thrilled to hear from anyone with suggestions for making We Eat Local even more useful to more people.

What's new

This release now includes producers, so you can see exactly where your food is grown or made. We're also giving farmers a helping hand by showing you farm gate stores that you can visit to buy from, and direct links to farmers' websites where you can see their food in more detail. It's all beautifully connected and super useful. And of course, we're continuously adding more places to the map so there are even more ways to support farmers to produce the kind of food we all want more of.
