The newest editions of the Buy Fresh, Buy Local Eater’s Guide to Local Food in the SF Bay Area is here !  This handy resource lets you know where to find local wherever you are, so you can be the most engaged, most local-loving eater in your region.


Figuring out where to dine and want to know the latest restaurants to source locally and sustainably?  Feel like packing up your friends to pick luscious cherries, apricots, and peaches in the Brentwood sunshine?  Need information on how to can and jam that heavenly pile of fruit when you get it home?  Have you waited until now to sign up for a CSA? We’ve got what you’re looking for.

The guide is your source for being savvy about local foods and includes oodles of other ways that you can eat locally year round. We’re already hard at work putting together Food Guides for these California regions in 2009:

  • San Francisco Bay Area
  • Central Coast (Fall)
  • San Joaquin Valley (Fall)
  • Humboldt County

Listings are free for food businesses committed to sourcing local ingredients. If you own a farm, restaurant, grocery store, or other food business that needs an extra boost, you should be listed! Or maybe you have the inside scoop on a delicious, sustainable café that could use some exposure. Tell us about it!

Contact Allyse Heartwell or go through our online registration process to submit your listing today. Please also get in touch with Allyse if you would like to distribute Eater’s Guides in your community or at local farmers markets.

Here’s to another season of eating locally and growing the food movement!
