Court Circuit en Corbieres, our local association has launched s new blog. Court Circuit en Corbieres is now entering their third year of bringing local producers together with local clients. Court Circuit en Corbieres was formed as a response to the atomisation and economic decline of the Haut Corbieres. Drawing its inspiration from the ideas of the Slow Food Movement and also Transition Network, but also reaching back to the neo-ruralists of the late 1960s Circuit en Corbieres seeks to encourage local residents and visitors alike to meet and support local producers, they work to encourage new producers to move and establish themselves in the Haut Corbieres.

Court Circuit en Corbieres runs a local producer delivery system, whereby you can order from a monthly updated list of local suppliers produce, see http://court-circuitencorbieres.eklablog.com/le-groupement-d-achat-c27186122
From June to September Court Circuit en Corbieres also organise a lovely little evening market in Laroque de Fa every Friday evening, from 5pm to 9pm, with a buvette, a bbq and food, often music so you can make a pleasant evening chatting with local producers and meeting locals and visitors alike. See http://court-circuitencorbieres.eklablog.com/le-marche-c27186126 for more details. We try and attend every month but because we do Narbonne Organic market and the Perpignan local producers market in Place de la Republique every Saturday, as well as organic festivals and flower markets on Sundays it not possible to do every week. We need some sleep after all.
(Court Circuit en Corbieres is trying to keep local money local, as opposed to buying from the large national and international food retailers, so they are also looking at local money schemes such as the Cers complementary local money scheme based around Narbonne, but used throughout the Aude.
