Buy Fresh Buy Local

We are very excited to announce that Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA) has awarded the administration of the Buy Fresh Buy Local program to Farmers Market Coalition!

Buy Fresh Buy Local® (BFBL) is the premier trademark of the local foods movement in the United States. The trademark was created and coordinated by PASA as a way to identify and promote locally grown foods. BFBL programs have been implemented by over 100 Regional and Local Chapters around the country, and FMC looks forward to supporting and expanding this progress.

Over the next couple months, FMC will work with existing BFBL Chapters to identify what’s working in their communities, what can be improved, and how we can make the BFBL program even more impactful. We have big plans to bring new partners, resources, and visibility to the work.

To kick off this initiative, FMC will be hosting monthly Chapter networking calls, and administering surveys to assess program impact and needs. Our first Chapter Networking call will take place on April 9th at 3:00pm ET. Existing, past and prospective Chapters can register here. Interested in learning more? Email Stephanie Fenty at stephanie@farmersmarketcoalition.org.
