Are you looking for fresh, local produce but stuck on who sells what and where? Well look no further -

buyCTgrown is an informative website that lists everything grown in Connecticut. It is a product of CitySeed Inc. and the buyCTgrown Advisory Team, a 23-member group (including CT NOFA!) of agricultural stakeholders in CT. The mission of buyCTgrown is to link Connecticut's food and agricultural community (including farmers, consumers, restaurants and retailers) to:  
  • Celebrate and promote Connecticut grown farm products, 
  • Grow the local economy, and  
  • Enhance the quality of life in our state.
The site has recently been relaunched to make it easier to use, and you can now search by product type, organization name, outlet, producer, and zip code. Be sure to check out the "full list of what grows in CT" which includes all varieties of vegetables, fruits, dairy and eggs, specialty foods, herbs, handicrafts, nursery/plants, meat, fiber, forest, livestock, and liquor - all grown and sold in CT! Additionally, the site also offers a blog, forum and a long list of resources, including the Farmers' Market Resource Center.
