Meat, Eggs, Milk, and Produce Can Be Hard to Find

Getting groceries isn’t the same. Many people are looking for alternatives to the big box stores and turning to local sources instead. Finding a local source can be a little tricky, so that’s why we started this list of farms and outlets carrying local (for the most part) produce, meat, and dairy items. If you know of other outlets, please leave a comment below. Thanks!
