"While a one day event is fun and enjoyable for everyone, Farm Bureau encourages everyone to buy local throughout the season. "We can't stress enough the importance of buying local every season," says Joseph Gergela, LIFB Executive Director, "The local greenhouses, farm fields, seafood and vineyards are what make this region so special. The investment into our own community is vital for our region to flourish." Visit Farmstands, farmers markets, fish markets, greenhouses, wineries and purchase from your local farmers.
