Local produce is fresher, tastier and more nutritious because it is usually sold within 24 hours of being picked.
If each Blaine County resident spent just $5 a week on locally grown food, our farmers would bring in $56 million annually — a huge economic boost.
Purchasing food from small sustainable farmers within a 150-mile radius helps minimize your food’s environmental impact.
The Wood River Valley offers a year-round supply of locally and regionally grown food, including grass-fed meat, dairy, dried beans, eggs, honey, and fresh fruits and veggies. Stock up at Wood River Farmers' Markets and local grocery stores, through seasonal CSAs, at local restaurants, and direct from farms.

Remember: Every dollar you spend on local food is a win for our local economy!view GUIDE
