Our Buy Local Campaign is a community-based initiative that evolved out of expressed interest to sustain local agriculture and build a stronger local food system in Sullivan and surrounding counties. The Sullivan Fresh project operates a mobile farmers’ market and a weekly farmers’ market in Monticello during the summer months.
Through outreach, marketing, and special initiatives we seek to raise individual and institutional awareness about the benefits of buying fresh locally grown and made products and to make local food an integral part of daily life. We are currently working on increasing farm to restaurant connections, establishing farm to institution connections, and providing access to fresh and nutritious food to low-income families and the general public.
Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County is involved in a number of buy local initiatives, with support from our partners. These initiatives include a Farmers’ Market Promotion project with the the Catskills Food Hub, a Farm to Institution planning project, and the “Sullivan Fresh” initiative. CCESC also helps to promote a number of different “buy local” campaigns, such as Pure Catskills, and Hudson Valley Bounty.
