Local sources of Whole and Organic Foods

Debra Redalia


There are two organizations that can help you find whole and healthy foods in your local area.

Local Harvest is a national directory of farms, community supported agriculture (CSA) programs, farmer’s markets, and products made by their members (that you can purchase at Local Harvest’s online store). They have been around as long as I can remember. When you click on the link, it will automatically give you the search results for your local area. If you have a shortage of organic produce where you live, check this out.
Cultivating a Healthy Food System (CUESA) CUESA is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to cultivating a sustainable food system through the operation of farmers markets and educational programs. They tell you what foods are in season and how to prepare them, in addition to featuring member farmers. To find the farmer’s you’ll meet at your local farrmer’s market, click on “farmer’s markets” in the main menu at the top, then scroll down to see links to each farmer.
