2018 Guides to Local Food

Taste the local difference

We are excited to share the digital versions of our 2018 Guides to Local Food for Northern Michigan and Southeast Michigan. We cover 48 counties throughout Michigan, including the Upper Peninsula, the Northern Lower Michigan, and much of the Southern Lower Peninsula. By highlighting local producers and purveyors, we hope to make a positive impact on Michigan's local food economy and enviornment. 

Each guide features a directory to farmers markets, farms, retail stores, and other local food champions in each region, making them easy to locate for the consumer. Plus, each guide is packed with seasonal recipes and feature stories, making these Guides a useful resource all year long. 

You can find these guides in retail stores, convention and visitor's bureaus, chambers of commerce, and farmers markets around your region.
