Buy Local

Look for organic farms near your tour stops, check out the local farmers markets, or shop at local grocers when possible.

  • Local Harvest | Find farmers' markets, family farms, and other sources of sustainably grown food in your area. Search by zip code or product.
  • Sustainable Table | Learn about food-related sustainability issues, find sustainable food sources with the Eat Well Guide, and even search for recipes that make use of what's in season!


Set up your own composting system and request venues do the same. Look for a composting facility or talk to local farms about a pick up.
