The Peasant Evolution Producers' Co-Operative

The Real Food Bus Shop is a mobile shop ┬áthat is supplied and run by the dynamic local co-operative of smallholders ‘Peasant Evolution Producers’ Co-Operative’ (PEPC). We sell delicious and exciting fruit, veg, meat, cheese, bread, eggs, apple juice and preserves. Nearly all our food stuffs and ingredients are local, organic and grown/reared by producers with an exceptionally high level of commitment to best environmental practice and husbandry. Many of them are off grid and the aim is that the Real Food Shop engages with its customers to tell them about how their food has been produced, what is happening seasonally on the farms, relevant forthcoming events etc..

The Real Food Shop appears every week in Bridport outside of the Bridport Arts Centre most weeks and by the Red Brick Cafe on weeks when the Farmer’s Market is on in front of the Arts Centre.

We are currently also working on extending into the villages. We will start out by making a couple of regular weekly routes around Dorset – the aim is to stop at markets and outside of local schools, as well as villages that no longer have a shop or small towns that have lost their butcher/independent grocer and end the day with commuters at local train stations. Any producers who would like to be involved or people who would like to be visited by the Food Bus, please let us know. We are planning out our routes now. Watch this space…
