Local Food Directories

USDA's Local Food Directories help you locate farmers markets, on-farm markets, CSAs, and food hubs. The directories are managed and operated by the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS), a USDA agency with the core mission of facilitating the fair and efficient marketing of U.S. agricultural products.

From customers looking to buy fresh local foods for their families to wholesale food buyers, you can quickly identify nearby suppliers of local food. By listing their business information in the directories, farmers, producers and distributors of local foods are able to take advantage of opportunities in both direct-to-consumer and wholesale markets.

Each directory provides key information about the business listed, including a mapped location, operating hours, months of operation, the types of products available, number of farmers at each market and the accepted forms of payment.

Managers and owners of local food entities are invited to enter and/or update their business information in the directories. Visit the “Add or Update a Listing” page to enter current business information for your farmers market, CSA, food hub or on-farm market.
