Why all the questions?

Buy Fresh Buy Local is a program that connects farmers and food producers with consumers who want to source farm and food products locally.

Consumers rely on Buy Fresh Buy Local to identify farms and food businesses that are part of their local economy and landscape. This increasingly discerning market is asking for more information and clarification on product sourcing, growing methods, and our definitions of ‘local’.

We do not have a rigid definition of local; however, it is important to communicate with consumers clearly and accurately about where local products are grown, processed and sold. The information provided by Buy Fresh Buy Local is integral to the marketing of local farm or food businesses and the overall strength of our local food economy!
