Automatic machines to buy food from farmers in ZH

I think last week I saw an article on BBC talking about automatic machines selling food straight from farmers in ZH city.

Today I was looking for this news again to see where these machines are located, but I cannot find this news any more.

Does anyone know anything about it ?

Thanks.

Interesting idea, of course I live close enough to local farmers that I buy it via self-service honor system

One of the farmers in our village does it. It feels like going to a left luggage in the train station rather than on a farm but very convenient when you live out in the sticks and you've run out of carrots for you carrot and cardamon soup on a Sunday night.

Re: Automatic machines to buy food from farmers in ZH

A local farmer offers his produce using the honour system. Can be a pain sometimes as you can't get any change. Products vary by the season, of course.
