Where to Find your Local Food Guide

It’s early summer in Michigan! And here at Taste the Local Difference, that means one thing: a new edition of our annual Local Food Guide. We’re busy hand delivering our Guides to a local food business near you! 

Our Local Food Guide is the ultimate resource for finding local food in your neighborhood, with local food businesses listed by county, and resources for finding local breweries, wineries, distilleries and more, as well as farmers markets and u-pick stands. Interspersed throughout are delicious recipes from chefs around the state, and the stories of local food champions from the past year.

Our 2021 edition is being celebrated in a statewide, virtual ‘Get Your Guide’ Weekend June 11th-13th! Visit participating local food partners to receive a copy of our resource when you make a purchase that supports local entrepreneurs. 

See the entire list of participating businesses here:

Our Local Food Guide is being distributed across the state, and can be found at any of the locations found in our map!
