The Second Annual Wood River Valley Locally Grown Guide is now available on  Source Magazine racks and at businesses throughout the valley.

The free Guide connects residents and visitors to high-quality seasonal food produced in the Wood River Valley’s regional foodshed and invites everyone to experience the farms, food businesses and organizations that create the distinctive flavor of the community.

  New for this year, the Guide includes Locally Grown Bingo, a fun and interactive way to discover the flavors of the regional food systems. The game encourages individuals and families to seek new local food experiences and offers chances to win locally produced products. Other additions this year include maps for easy navigation to businesses selling and serving local food and a new listing section for local beverage crafters.   

  “With the Wood River Valley Locally Grown Guide, we have produced the comprehensive resource for eating and drinking locally in our community. The Guide makes the sourcing of local ingredients and meals simple and fun, but it also does much more,” said Mike Gordon, communications manager for the Sun Valley Institute for Resilience. “By highlighting regional producers and encouraging conscious food purchasing, the Guide moves us close to a thriving community with greater farmer income, healthier air, water, soil, and secure sources of wholesome and nutrient-dense regional foods available year-round.

“It all starts with a commitment to buying foods grown close to home,” he added. “The Locally Grown Guide makes that an easy step!”  

 The Locally Grown Guide features more than 100 local food business listings, informative articles, and interactive content. To learn more about the Guide and view an online directory of listings, visit localfoodalliance.org/food-guide  

  It is a publication of Local Food Alliance, a program of the Sun Valley Institute for Resilience (SVIR). The purpose of Sun Valley Institute for Resilience is to advance community resilience in Idaho’s Wood River Valley region by educating, investing and collaborating to ensure that the economy, environment and people thrive.
