CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The 2012 Buy Fresh Buy Local food directory is now available from Northern Iowa Food & Farm Partnership (NIFFP) at the University of Northern Iowa Center for Energy & Environmental Education (CEEE) and on the NIFFP website, www.niffp.org.

The directory features information about where to purchase locally produced foods in Black Hawk County and neighboring counties. "The directory is a great resource for finding local producers of fruits, vegetables, meat, honey and dairy products, as well as the retailers and institutions that support our local food economy," said Andrea Geary, NIFFP local food program manager. "Additionally, the guide features a seasonal harvest calendar, information on how to buy locally raised meat and an upcoming events calendar."

For more information, contact Geary at 319-273-7883 or andrea.geary@uni.edu. Copies of the directory can also be obtained at the retailers and institutions that support the local food economy.
