"Local foods systems provide several advantages over conventional and global markets. Buying locally strengthens regional economies, supports family farms, provides delicious "fresh from the field" foods for consumers, preserves local landscape, and fosters a sense of community." - Minnesota Food Association

While it may seem that everywhere you look different people, organizations and corporations are telling you what food is best to buy, supporting local foods is truly much more than just a decision at the grocery store. With the simple purchase of a local potato, you are making a stand for your local economy and your local family farmers. With the purchase of a few cobs of sweet corn, you are demanding that your community take responsibility for the health of its residents as well as its landscapes. Instead of placing your well-being into the hands of an unknown giant, you are shaking hands with the farmer who grows but 50 miles away from you.

While cities all over the world, including the Twin Cities, continue to expand and evolve, so must our priorities in food production. Rogers, and other thriving suburban cities, are in a unique position to prove that smaller urban communities can make a huge difference.
