Welcome to the Real Economy

We are working for a better type of food system, offering a real alternative to supermarkets. By shopping with Real Economy, you can buy food directly from local producers, knowing that you are receiving the best produce possible and that the producers are being paid a fair price.

You can read more about the Real Economy here on the main site.
If you'd like to get in touch you can call 07443 653 172 or email info@realeconomy.co.uk

Make an order

The buying period is open from 2pm on a Thursday and closes at midnight on Monday, and your order is delivered to your selected collection point (or via home delivery in eligible postcodes - see below) on a Thursday. Browse our different producers above (click Shop by Producer) to see what each of our local farmers and producers have available. Or maybe shop by category to see everything on offer. Perhaps you have something specific in mind, in which case you can search for an individual item. Simply add the items you want to your basket, then checkout, paying using Bristol Pounds or through an online card payment.
