Eat Fresh, Eat Local

Each year we get excited to feature local food vendors in and around Mower County, it’s a sign that spring is arriving and fresh food options will abound in the coming months! The commitment it takes to grow fresh produce is motivated out of a love for the land, desire to improve the health of the people they serve, and offering an opportunity for consumers to know where and how the food they are eating is grown. This list of available produce varies from vendor to vendor so check them all out!
