2014 Local Foods, Local Spirits Directory 

This is a business tool to link food producers to potential food buyers, like restaurant chefs, grocers, and B&B owners. This directory lists over 100 local food and spirits producers from within a 50-mile radius with contact information and primary product line. If you are interested in sourcing more local ingredients you may find what you are looking for here. The directory is now in its fourth year and still growing in leaps and bounds.

New in 2015, a section will be added for those chefs that served farm-to-table canapés at the Annual Cooperstown Local Food, Local Spirits Cocktail Party. If you, too, would like to be listed as an establishment serving local specialties send your contact information, and business specialty to market@otsego2000.org.

If you are a producer or a farmer’s market manager please send vendor contact information and primary product line to Lyn Weir at the Cooperstown Farmers Market, market@otsego2000.org, or call (607)547-6195.
