Take the Buy Local Challenge!
July 20-28, 2013
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 third week in 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.
Buy Local Cookbooks: Each year, MDA publishes a cookbook of recipes submitted by local chefs who source from local producers. Previous cookbooks are posted here:
