Restaurants, Catering and Specialty Retail

Restaurant/Caterer/Retail Application

Restaurants or Caterers or specialty retailers who are sourcing local product from area growers and producers may apply to become a partner. Local products should be purchased directly from the farmer, market or co-op within the Hampton Roads or Northeastern North Carolina region (within 100 miles of your location). Local products purchased may be a part of your regular menu or used for specials only. Our board of directors will use its discretion when reviewing your application for approval. Fill out the application to the left or download the Restaurant and Caterer Application. ​The listing fee is $150 for the year.  This small yearly fee helps Buy Fresh Buy Local to defray printing costs. Thank you for your support!
