July 21-31, 2023

Summer is in full swing and Maryland produce is bountiful! Now is the perfect time to support local producers by choosing to purchase Maryland products during Buy Local Week!  This week-long promotion encourages all Marylanders to take the “Buy Local Pledge“, and use at least one Maryland-grown product every day from July 21-July 31!

“Why is this so important?” Maryland’s total economic impact of resource-based industries (agriculture, forestry, seafood, aquaculture, and horticulture) in 2019 equaled nearly $20.2 billion, supported over 88,600 jobs and generated almost $755.2 million in state and local tax revenue. Not to mention money spent in local communities has been linked to an increase in local jobs that directly benefit the communities in which they serve.

This year Maryland’s Best has created a Buy Local Bingo card to keep track of your Buy Local activities. Contestants who complete 5 activities (or more!) and submit their bingo cards with photos of their activities will win Maryland’s Best prizes! To enter, please submit entries to buy.localmda@maryland.gov. Make sure to share your photos on social media with the hashtag #buylocalmd for a chance to be featured on our pages.

Have fun and Buy Local!
