[Tagging] Tagging of "local" produce

I am not sure shop is right in this case, a farm shop is usually a more permanent building, these are more stalls or even the word you used originally, stand.

There are many places like this on the UK, mainly selling eggs from smallholdings, but selling seasonal produce too. Most have an honesty box.

It could be useful to tag whether they are staffed our not. Nothing worse than not having the right change when there is an honesty box.

When traveling, I enjoy stopping at farm stands, where freshly grown produce can be purchased.

Some farm stands actually sell in-season produce direct off the adjacent farm.  Others, which look the same from the road, sell imported goods only.
A third type offers the goods from various local farms.  
How could I tag the difference?

This is similar to the difference between an on-site bakery, an outlet shop for a local bakery, and a retail store that sells bread baked in a faraway place. 
Here "U-Pick" adds even another dimension.
