About Goodery

Goodery is an online grocery marketplace. We connect local farmers, ethical businesses and conscious consumers. We do this with zero emissions and as little waste possible.

We started up in Norwich, Norfolk as a response to the needs of our community when The Good Host began supporting NHS staff during COVID-19.
