'Buy Local NB' is a project by the Conservation Council of New Brunswick that makes finding local produce much easier. The Buy Local NB app is made for residents of the province who are looking for more fresh fruits and vegetables. The app includes information on all the local growers, farmers and retailers.

The app is designed to drive more consumers away from grocery stores onto local farms where they will be able to experience local food. The app has a simple interface and asks users to select from a menu of farm products, farms to visit, local markets or non-food products. Once an option is selected, the nearest farm will be suggested. Users also have the option to 'visit a farm,' which provides more information on specific farms and what they produce.

When using the platform, users are also encouraged to check out the 'Buy Local NB' Facebook page that features app updates and daily posts that spotlight local businesses worth visiting.
