» Market Rules and Guidelines

How to Buy and Eat Local
» Buy directly from a local producer. Contact some of the producers listed here.

» Go to the Farmers Markets (seasonal). Support the local vendors who come out to the market for your convenience.

» Get involved with a community garden. Grow your own food, or food for someone in need at one of the several community gardens around the county.

» Buy from a retailer that sells or prepares locally produced food. Encourage local retailers to source their products locally by purchasing from local producers and processors.

» Buy locally raised whole animals. Contact one of the livestock producers to arrange the purchase of an animal for meat, then contact a custom meat processor for the kill, cut and wrap.
