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.
Buy Local Cookbooks: Each year, MDA publishes a cookbook of recipes submitted by local chefs who source from local producers.
See the 2014 Cookbook here!
The 2014 Buy Local Cookout will take place Thursday, July 24, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Government House in Annapolis. This is the seventh annual Buy Local Cookout that Governor and Mrs. O'Malley will host. Attendance at this event is invitation only.
