Shop Local, Eat Local, Create Local

Okay, just for the record, I’d like it to be know that I think it should be “Shop Locally, Eat Locally, Create Locally”. But hey, it’s all about promoting community economic development.

From A Taste of Northfield to the Building for Creative Professionals, the NDDC advocates investing in our community. Now there’s a new twist to this theme. Just Food Co-op is encouraging people to eat 80 percent of their diet from food produced in the five-state region for six weeks.

Just Food, like the NDDC, believes that working to keep your money in Northfield is good for both the local economy and the global environment. So take the challenge, and enjoy some of that local produce, now available at the Northfield Farmers’ Market and other area establishments.
