If you’re looking for a real way to eat better, improve your quality of life, support the local economy, reduce your carbon footprint, reduce packaging, improve regional food security, build community, and improve your long-term health – all at the same time – it’s very simple: stop buying overly processed and packaged food often shipped for thousands of miles, and start eating locally grown and raised food.
Exploring local food options is good for all of us. Save this alphabetical list of local growers (or markets whose primary function is supporting local growers) and watch for updates in the future. If you have a local grower you’d like to see included in future lists, please get in touch!
