If you prefer to pick your fruit from a tree rather than a shelf, Ripe Near Me could be for you.
Your neighbourhood could become your green grocer thanks to the website.
It brings together people with fresh produce within their area, whether they are in Eagle Farm and looking for pineapples, live in Chermside and are in need of some extra herbs or are from Indooroopilly and want to find someone to take their chicken's excess eggs off their hands.
Brisbane has a wide range of fresh produce available at different times of the year, you might be surprised at what you find people grow- have you ever tasted a jabuticaba?
After signing up, you can let people know about the produce you have and/or check out what's available in near. A map displays what produce is available, where they are, if something is charged for them and if so, how much, as well as if the items are available now or still growing.
You can contact the grower and organise to buy, sell or swap produce through the website.
