Buy Local…and Invest in Central New York

Buying locally grown foods has become somewhat of a trend in the past few years. Bestsellers have been written, new words—localvore—have been coined, and people across the nation want to be connected to where their food comes from.

This is no trend in Central New York—it is a way of life. Our broad agricultural base gives us, as consumers, an opportunity that many don’t have—the opportunity to buy local. Products are readily available at local grocery stores, farmers’ markets and roadside stands, and we happily buy them because they taste good and we know where they came from.
