A Message from the Director, April 2019

April 16, 2019

SEMAP has its own version of spring planting. Each spring one of the ways we grow demand for local food in Southeastern Massachusetts is by publishing our Local Food Guide of the region’s farmers, growers, fishermen, aquaculturists, and value-added producers. In a world where demand for a customer’s attention is at a premium, we fill aunique role with the Local Food Guide where you can both peruse the offerings at leisure or zero in on a specific geographic area and type of local food. The Local Food Guide focuses solely on businesses that are part of our local food industry: farms, farmers markets, restaurants, and food establishments. We also highlight fairs and festivals to promote our agricultural heritage, and we work hard to be certain that as many people as possible learn about the options to engage with local food in our area.
