If you have been thinking about eating more locally grown foods, you're not alone. Higher food costs, food safety issues, and a desire for a better tasting product have lead many to seek out and increase their consumption of locally grown foods. One of the biggest challenges to eating local foods, however, is knowing where to find them. Now this information is right at your fingertips with the Local Foods Maps!
- Farmer's market locations
- Community supported agriculture (CSA's)
- Grocery stores that sell locally grown products
- Restaurants that cook with locally grown ingredients (at least seasonally)
Remember, availability of locally grown goods depends on the seasons, so the selection will vary.

- Check out the Lavender festival, the Maize Maze, local fairs or other agricultural events
- Visit a "u-pick" farm and harvest your own food
- Tour a dairy and feed baby goats
