In the two years since PEC’s last Buy Fresh Buy Local guides were printed, a lot has changed in the Piedmont and within our local food system. This is why we are incredibly excited to announce that the 2023-2024 Buy Fresh Buy Local guides will be released this coming Spring 2023. See the 2021-2022 guides for reference.
These guides, which showcase and uplift farms, markets, and sellers in the Loudoun, Northern Piedmont, and Charlottesville areas, are printed and mailed directly to 300,000+ households and businesses biennially. Sponsorships cover the expense of printing/mailing the guides far and wide. More sponsors means more connections with people who would like to buy locally from you.
Sponsoring a Buy Fresh Buy Local guide is an affordable and long-lasting way to advertise your business to tens of thousands of folks in your community who are looking for local food and beverages.
If you are interested in becoming a “Community Sponsor” (geared toward non-food related businesses, nonprofits, foundations, associations, individuals) or a “Local Food Sponsor” (geared toward farms and local food businesses listed in the guides), please click the link to see the different sponsorship levels.
