Want to know where to shop for local food? A directory listing area businesses, restaurants and markets is now available.
The 2012 Food & Farm Directory is in a brochure version and online. It lists farms and ranches, farm stands, community-supported agriculture vendors, farmers markets, grocers, online retailers, specialty shops, cafes and restaurants. All establishments are located in Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson counties. Each entry contains a description of the business.
The directory is part of a recently launched effort called Buy Fresh Buy Local, organized by the Central Oregon Food Policy Council. The goals of the campaign include linking local purveyors with consumers.
The brochure is available at participating area businesses. The directory is at the website below: Go to the Eat Local tab and scroll down to Food & Farm Directory.
