  • Summit Food Coalition publishes a Local Food Guide, helping consumers connect directly with local farmers through various outlets. Find the printed guide at area farmers' markets, or visit our online resources to help you connect with local food outlets.
  • In June 2017 we launched Summit Kitchen Connect, connecting local food business entrepreneurs with kitchen space available for lease in Summit County.  Resources to assist both kitchen owners and entrepreneurs navigate this process are also available. Find details here.
