We all know that food grown locally tastes the best when it gets to our table. It's fresher and because it's picked in season at its peak ripeness, it boasts the finest flavor. Plus we feel good about buying from our neighbors and supporting Arkansas's economy.

Arkansas Grown, a program by the Arkansas Agriculture Department, seeks to bolster farmers in the state by better connecting local producers and buyers.

Arkansas Grown strives to increase the number of grocery stores, businesses and restaurants carrying Arkansas produce while raising public awareness about the state's thriving farms and encouraging consumers to opt for local choices.
