Buy Local

Why should YOU buy local foods?  One reason is that local food supports local families. The wholesale prices that farmers get for their products are low, often near the cost of production. Local farmers who sell direct to consumers cut out the middleman and get full retail price for their food - which helps farm families stay on the land.You also get food that is fresher, and you know where and how it is grown!

Visit the pages in this Buy Local section to find summer -- and winter!-- farmers' markets, producers who sell meat in bulk directly to consumers, and learn about CSA - Community Supported Agriculture -- and how a CSA share might work for your family!
