Several coastal counties in the Northeast are gearing up to celebrate the region’s vibrant culinary culture with the upcoming Local Foods Week from June 9-15, 2024. Residents and visitors are invited to indulge in the region’s freshest and most flavorful offerings.

Local Foods Week aims to highlight the diverse array of locally grown and produced foods that Northeast North Carolina offers. From the fertile fields of its farmlands to the bountiful waters of its coastlines, the region boasts an abundance of delicious ingredients that are the pride of its communities.

It is the hope of the Coastal NC Food Policy Council that citizens and visitors will seek out the assortment of farm fresh fruits, vegetables, meats and dairy products offered in local farmer’s markets and restaurants. Additionally, workshops, cooking demonstrations, and farm tours will provide opportunities for residents and visitors to learn more about the region’s food system and the benefits of supporting local producers.

Visit the website of your county Cooperative Extension Center for additional information on local workshops and tours.

Northeast North Carolina’s agricultural heritage runs deep, and Local Foods Week provides a time to celebrate its unique flavors and traditions. By choosing locally sourced foods, we not only support local farmers and food producers but also promote sustainability and strengthen our local communities.
