The local producers going the extra mile during the crisis

The local producers going the extra mile during the crisis

In these tumultuous times, it is more important than ever to opt for short supply chains and (re)discover local regional producers. Farm shops, local retailers, artisans…: they are all going the extra mile to prepare your orders and are working longer hours whilst respecting safety rules. Here are some ideas of where you can get your hands on produce which is as local as it is delicious.

This list is non-exhaustive. If you are or if you know a producer, are a local retailer yourself or have one to recommend, please send the details to: info@charleroimetropole.be. We will also forward them on to the Ceinture alimentaire de Charleroi Métropole and Hainaut Terre de Goûts,to make sure you are added to their websites.
