Are you up for a 'challenge'?
The statewide Buy Local Challenge (BLC) encourages Marylanders to support local farms and producers by choosing to buy and enjoy Maryland grown and produced farm products every day during Buy Local Week, July 17 through 25, 2021.
Why Buy Local
Buying local is good for you, good for the local economy and good for the planet!
Spending locally with farms and other makers helps you get products that are fresher and have traveled much shorter distances overall from farm to fork.
Plus, you're supporting independent family farms and local businesses which helps strengthen the local economy.
Now more than ever, it's important to show support for your local farms.
Shop at your local farms, farm stands, farmers' markets, wineries, grocers and markets that stock genuine local products.
