Governor Larry Hogan officially named July 18-26 as “Maryland Buy Local Week” to support Maryland farms and seafood operations that continue to provide Marylanders with fresh, local products. Maryland Buy Local Week encourages citizens to take the Buy Local Challenge by incorporating at least one locally grown, produced, or harvested product into their meals each day.
**UPDATE** As the state remains vigilant in mitigating the spread of COVID-19, the 2020 Buy Local Cookout has been cancelled. Since 2009, the governor’s Buy Local Cookout has served as a kick-off event for Maryland Buy Local Week. This event invites teams of Maryland producers and chefs to prepare unique recipes with Maryland-grown or caught ingredients. Recipe submissions are published each year in the Maryland Department of Agriculture’s “Buy Local Cookbook.” Previous year’s cookbooks are available below.
All entries submitted to the department are included in a Recipes from the Buy Local Cookout cookbook. We are pleased to present the 2019 cookbook below as well as all past cookbooks for free download. See reprint permission policy.
