The Buy Local Challenge was created by the Southern Maryland Agricultural Development Commission and has since become a statewide program. The Challenge encourages all Marylanders to eat at least one locally grown or raised product each day of the Buy Local Challenge Week, which is always the last full week of July.
The Buy Local Pledge: "I pledge to eat at least one thing from a local farm every day during Buy Local Week." Sign the pledge.
The 8th annual Governor's Buy Local Cookout will take place July 16, 2015 at Government House in Annapolis. Attendance at this event is invitation only.
Buy Local Cookbooks:
Each year, MDA publishes a cookbook of recipes submitted by local chefs who source from local producers.
The 2015 Cookbook will be available on July 16, 2015.
