I follow the blog Little Home in the Country and have been introduced by Sherri to the Ripe Near Me initiative. What a great idea! Any gardener has (hopefully) experienced an excess of produce at one time or another. This site seems like a fabulous way to swap or sell that crop, and meet like-minded folks in your own community at the same time. Even if you are not a gardener, it is a way to locate locally grown food.
The site is new and there are (as yet) no members in my area. Hopefully we can get the word out and, by the time harvest rolls around, share some of our garden's bounty!
