Each of these restaurants makes an effort to source fresh seasonal ingredients purchased directly from local farms and producers.
Buying locally grown food takes both commitment and flexibility: weather can be unpredictable, fresh foods are seasonal, and the coordination of deliveries directly with farmers takes a bit more time and dedication. Yet in return, these businesses offer their customers the freshest, most flavorful foods available. Nothing beats a peach ripened in Connecticut sunshine or basil picked just hours before it found its way into your entree.

Ask what's local on the menu and where it came from! Your patronage of these businesses encourages their continued commitment to local farmers. Spread the word! Locally grown food tastes better!
