GardenShare’s annual Local Food Guide lists farmers markets, farm stands, U-pick orchards, restaurants, grocers, and other outlets that offer food raised in St. Lawrence County, New York.

The farms listed in this guide have assured us that they sell food they have raised themselves or food they have produced themselves using largely local ingredients.  Beyond this simple honor system, GardenShare does not certify locally grown food or farming practices. In addition to their own food, these farms may also sell food that is not locally grown or produced. Feel free to ask the farmer, Did you grow this yourself? The stores listed have assured us that they offer food from at least three St. Lawrence County farms.

Certified organic farms have met USDA standards for organic food production, as verified by an accredited agency such as the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York (NOFA-NY). Other farms may also follow organic practices but have chosen not to undergo the certification process. For example, signers of the NOFA-NY Farmer's Pledge commit themselves to ecologically sound farming and to socially responsible labor and local marketing practices. Ask the farmer about his or her farming practices.

The restaurants listed here showcase local food and buy from local farms.

The sponsors help underwrite the cost of the Local Food Guide—please give them your support.
