Buy Fresh Buy Local Central Illinois is a chapter of farmer, farmers markets, restaurants, retailers, wineries, and breweries with a commitment to selling locally grown food. The chapter encourages sustainable business practices and the humane treatment of animals while celebrating the abundance of artisanal products and produce unique to Illinois. Our goal is to make it easier for you to find fresh, wholesome, locally raised food and raise awareness for the importance of buying locally for the well-being of our environment, economy, and communities.
