Shoreline Community Spotlight: Supporting Local Agriculture

I’ve seen these questions floating around the local community Facebook groups lately…”Where’s a good place to buy produce locally?” and “Does anyone have a recommendation for a local farm to make my meat purchase from?” Well, I knew that farm market season was soon to be opening, but wondered what the options were for when market season ends. Thank goodness for the power of Google! Some of these finds were familiar due to their presence at the local farm markets, but others were new to me and I look forward to taking a “Sunday drive” to check them out! Do you have a favorite that I’ve missed? Be sure to leave a comment so we can add new finds to our list!
