Local Food: Heartland Food Network
 

For Consumers: Restaurants and Caterers that Use Local Food

Are you looking to support local farmers by dining at restaurants that use local food? Great news! There are many to choose from in Minnesota. The following list has been compiled by the Heartland Food Network as a service to Minnesotan consumers looking for healthy, local food when dining out. We have personally spoken with the restaurants and caterers about their use of local food and all of these restaurants have a commitment to buy from local growers. If you know of an additional restaurant that should be on this list please contact our Local Foods Coordinator at: heartlandfoodnetwork@mnproject.org.

When you visit them, please let them know that are patronizing them because they use local, sustainably grown food. Let them know you’d like them to use as much as possible! They listen to their customers.

Want to buy direct from the farmer? For a complete list of farmers, farmers markets, and CSA farms, visit the Minnesota Grown website. The directory at Simple, Good and Tasty also has a listing of restaurants, grocery stores and other establishments that carry local food in Minnesota.
