London – Traditionally, lemonade stand proprietors have advertised with home-made signs. Now, anybody can find or sell products locally with a new interactive map.

The Hyperlocal Market, designed by 2013 Royal College of Art graduate Kayleigh Thompson, enables people to upload their food and drink products via mobile to a community of registered users. The goods, from home-brewed ale to apples and cakes, then pop up on a map of the user’s neighbourhood.

Sellers list their products by taking a picture on their mobile and entering the price on the Hyperlocal Market app. Those in search of treats available in their area can browse by postcode. The platform includes a scale for weighing produce, a printer for printing labels and an interactive website.
