Local Food Systems

our mission is...

To provide our community with information about local food systems in the interest of strengthening the local market for sustainable food businesses.

What We're Working On

  • Developing funding opportunities for food systems projects 
  • Exploring business opportunities for new farmers
  • Creating community incentives for including sustainable food at restaurants

Join the Food Committee

Meetings on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. Contact Shawn Youngblood at shawnyoungblood@sustainabletallahassee.org. 


Tallahassee & Leon County are lucky to have many opportunities to get fresh produce, dairy, and meat from local producers. 

Check out this Directory of Tallahassee’s Farmers Markets prepared by Tallahassee Table to find a market near you.

Whether you have a little space in your yard or pots on a balcony, or are a part of a community garden, growing your own food is a fun and rewarding way to obtain nutrient-dense food. 

The UF/IFAS Leon County Extension Office is a valuable resource for learning how to grow your own food. Check out this North Florida Vegetable Garden Guide to help you get started.
