Dedicated foodies looking to score cheap and tasty produce have relied on farmer’s markets’ seasonal and local offerings for years, but the age-old practice of buying food directly from farmers has taken a big technological leap with the introduction of the Farmstand iOS app.

The app itself is pretty simple: It tracks your location and tells you where your nearest farmer’s markets are and when they’re open. Once you’ve selected your preferred market, you can scroll through dozens of posts made by your friends and other shoppers to find out what’s offered and where the really great apples are being sold. The app is based around networks of people taking pretty pictures of delicious food and sharing them.
