Buy Fresh Buy Local is all about making it fun and easy to find delicious, farm-fresh foods in northeast Oklahoma. Purchasing locally-produced foods supports our region’s farmers, strengthens our local economy and improves our food security.

The Food Guide list sources for locally-produced fruits, vegetables, herbs, plants, honey, nuts, grains, meats, eggs, dairy foods and other agricultural goods. U-pick farms, farmstands, and other growers selling directly to the public will be included, as will farmers’ markets, local food markets, and possibly restaurants, so that food shoppers can know where to Buy Fresh Buy Local in Green Country.

One other source for local foods to be listed in the Food Guide is the Oklahoma Food Cooperative, where customer members can order a wide variety of good eats directly from farmers and ranchers. The Food Guide also contains useful information about the seasonal availability of locally-produced foods in the region.
