Defining 'local, locally grown or regional"
When the terms local or locally grown or regional
are used to promote an agricultural product, the name of the state from which the product was originally grown or raised must
be immediately adjacent to the words (local or locally grown or regional.)
In the case of fish or shellfish, the state where the seafood was raised or landed is required.
For intermingled product from different states, each state shall be listed.
This Buy Local regulation applies to wholesale, retail stores, farmers markets and restaurants, among others.
