While you’re editing, it is important to tag each feature so that they are readily identifiable within OSM. This guide explains tags for food related features.
‘Tagging’ refers to the practice of assigning attributes to the map features you just digitized. Tags consist of two parts: key and value. The key is a general level classifier, such as ‘highway’. The value is a more specific classification, such as ‘secondary’. E.g. ‘highway’ = ‘secondary’.
In the iD editor, feature tagging is done through the pane on the left side of your screen. These general tags might apply to almost any item:
|Groceries, retail food outlets||shop|
|Food Bank/Pantry/Soup Kitchen||amenity|
|Farm Market-Roadside Stand||shop|
|(for farmers mkts only)||amenity|
|Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)||farm_box|
|(if onsite sales)||shop|
|Farm or Garden Stores||shop|
|Compost and Mulch||shop|
|Wine, Beer, Liquor Production||building|
