Farmers and Local Food Businesses

Registration coming soon! Registration is open to the following local food businesses:

  • farms
  • farmers markets
  • farm-to-table restaurants
  • local food grocers/co-ops

Farms in neighboring states that sell their products through direct-to-consumer outlets in Illinois are also encouraged to join.

Registration is FREE to be listed on the Buy Fresh Buy Local Illinois website. For a small fee, farms and local food businesses have the opportunity to be listed in the corresponding print directory, which will consist of 30,000 copies distributed across Illinois.

Full terms of participation can be found here.

NOTE: The Print Directory will launch in May 2021. In light of recent circumstances, the BFBL Illinois Coalition voted to delay the launch of the print directory and focus efforts on the virtual space, including strengthening and marketing the online directory to the public.
