Buy Local Week
Take the annual Buy Local Challenge and eat one food grown locally every day during Buy Local Week. Broaden your horizons to include farms, farm stands, farmers markets, wineries, groceries and markets that offer local farm products; plus, dine at restaurants that serve local farm food and wine. Take the Challenge to the Extreme photo competition and post your photos on the Buy Local Challenge Facebook page by July 28, showing how you took the Challenge to the extreme. The winning photo earns a gift certificate for Maryland Department of Agriculture’s Maryland’s Best Ice Cream Trail (valued at $100), plus a package of goodies: www.buy-local-challenge.com.
