Speaking of farms and markets, the Taste The Local Difference guide to local farm markets and farm products is now available at visitor centers and retail locations from Manistee to Mackinac (and all through Leelanau). Now in its fifth year, the free and popular guide lists 229 farms, 26 wineries, 21 farmers markets and nearly 100 restaurants, caterers, grocers and other businesses that offer locally grown food products in the 10-county northwest lower Michigan region.
Visit Taste the Local Difference is also online at www.LocalDifference.org for an online guide, recipes and other information about fresh, seasonal foods.
