Buy Local

The Buy Local Campaign is a community based initiative that aims to sustain local agriculture and build a stronger local food system in Schnectady and surrounding counties. Our goals are to foster the environmental, economic and social vitality of our community by increasing the connections between consumers and farmers. 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.
