FOOD ACTION NETWORK
Make a day of it and tour the best farms, restaurants, and markets the Coast has to offer.
From Langdale to Egmont, there is an abundance of local food!
Search by product category – Find that special item or basket full of produce in the category listings, and reference the map to locate the vendors you wish to visit.
• Call ahead for hours of operation, product availability, and detailed directions.
• Be respectful of farmers, as their businesses are often their homes.
• Remember to bring cash and shopping bags and baskets to farm gates and farmers markets.
If we’ve missed you this time, or if you would like to be listed in
our next printing please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
WHY LOCAL? We promote local, ecologically sustainable food not only because it’s fresh and more nutritious (or better for our earth/the planet), but also because healthy communities depend on a healthy local food economy.
By spending your food dollars locally, you strengthen our communities’ resiliency, self-sufficiency, and ability to be “food secure.” Reconnect to the land by knowing where your food is grown and who grows it!
