Buy Fresh Buy Local Nebraska Launches 2021 Membership Drive!

BFBLN membership is open for:

  • Farmers & Ranchers
  • Farmers' Markets
  • Local food businesses

The registration deadline to join or renew your membership & get listed in our printed Nebraska Food Guide is January 31, 2021.

With COVID-19 outbreaks starting in the spring of this year, farmers markets across the state delayed their start date, had to change venues, & some closed all together. Nebraska farms, as well as food businesses, pivoted to meet the challenges of higher demand, loss of market outlets, and interest in curbside pick up & delivery. One resource that is helping alleviate these disruptions and keep Nebraska shoppers connected with local foods is Buy Fresh Buy Local Nebraska.

Buy Fresh Buy Local Nebraska features a searchable online database of local food businesses, an annual print directory called the Nebraska Food Guide, and year-round media campaigns to promote local food. These initiatives are powered by our membership made of farmers, ranchers, food businesses, & farmers markets dedicated to promoting, marketing, and educating on the benefits of Nebraska-grown foods & products.

By combining resources, energy, information, and funding, Buy Fresh Buy Local Nebraska creates a single go-to local food resource for customers.
