About Us

 

Our mission is simple: to connect people on the Cape with locally grown farm and sea products.

We do this through two approaches:

1) Public information and education about where to find locally-grown products, and why it’s a great idea to do so.

2) Collective promotion of our Partners who have made a commitment to support land and sea farms and ocean harvesters in Barnstable County.

Buy Fresh Buy Local is a program of the Farmers Market Coalition, a national non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening farmers markets across the United States so that they can serve as community assets while providing real income opportunities for farmers. The local Cape Cod chapter was started in summer 2008 and is administered by Cape Cod Cooperative Extension.  Funding and support is provided by Barnstable CountyCape Cod Cooperative Extension, and the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources.
