The Australian app RipeNearMe hopes to revolutionize the way consumers interact with local produce in their area. RipeNearMe is a smartphone app that helps local farmers give consumers the chance to enjoy excess fruits and veggies by notifying you when the best time to pick the produce is.

RipeNearMe is a great alternative to busy grocery store chains because it eliminates the need for prolonged shipping times between countries and even continents. Instead, RipeNearMe promotes picking local food produced by farmers and growers in your area. Farmers can register their farms and orchards to alert consumers when there is an excess of product that consumers can come and pick for free or a reduced charge. The concept of RipeNearMe is great for promoting small local businesses and sustaining the economy.
