Are you an Algoma farm or food business that wants to sell more local food?

Buy Algoma - Buy Fresh

Since 2009, the Buy Algoma. Buy Fresh. ( local food marketing initiative has raised awareness of local food and farming in Algoma through its printed directory, website and Facebook.

In order to keep the initiative relevant to farms and consumers, the Rural Agri-Innovation Network would like feedback from farm and food businesses that are interested in continuing the initiative.

The survey can be filled out online at:

Survey Monkey

If you need surveys mailed to you, please send your address to Katie Filion, RAIN Marketing Specialist at [email protected] or (705) 942-7927 x3024.

The initiative has had great partners over the last four years to make the initiative happen including Algoma Food Network, Johnson Farmers’ Market Desbarats, the Rural Agri-Innovation Network (a project of SSM Innovation Centre & NORDIK Institute), Algoma Public Health and Foodland Ontario.

It will be critical for the initiative in the coming years to identify and implement ways to make it sustainable.
