Sudbury area consumers looking for farm fresh local foods need to look no farther than the Eat Local Sudbury Co-operative - a one-stop shop for farmers to sell and for consumers to buy local food. The co-operative’s programs include a “Meet the Farmer” marketing campaign and a ‘buyers’ club’ where customers can place orders which are then filled by area farmers and delivered to a centralized location for distribution. The work of the co-operative has evolved to include a permanent store that sells local products year round. The group also works with restaurants and other end users to eliminate barriers to using local ingredients.
