Now that you've probably heard about the benefits of eating locally grown food, you'll want to check out the following searchable databases. They'll have you chowing down on regional grub in no time. Most of these sites allow you to enter your ZIP code or at least search by state. And some even allow you to narrow your search to something as specific as 'pumpkin patches' within '50 miles' of 'Phoenix, Arizona,' or 'local food restaurants' in 'Lawrence, Kansas.' Scroll to the bottom to find local food producers outside the United States.

Local Harvest

Real Food. Real Farmers. Real Community.

Search for farmers markets, CSAs (community supported agriculture groups), co-ops and restaurants featuring local food.

This is an old post, but still very much relevant. Check out another source of local food: https://www.1000ecofarms.com/ The site lists local farmers and food producers both in United States and abroad. Hope this helps!

As a limited food forager for many years, I have been rather consistent in what I harvest. I wish to learn more on what else is safe to pick and eat, but I still play on the side of caution. My general favorites are wild blackberries, huckleberries, morel mushrooms and chanterelle mushrooms. My other half enjoys harvesting wild game, fish and shellfish.
