CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- The 2009 Buy Fresh Buy Local Food Directory is now available from Northern Iowa Food & Farm Partnership (NIFFP) at the University of Northern Iowa Center for Energy & Environmental Education.

The directory features information about where to purchase locally grown meats, fruits and vegetables in Black Hawk and neighboring Iowa counties. It also lists grocers, restaurants and institutions that buy local foods.

"New additions to the directory this year include a chart that shows the best times to buy Iowa fruits and vegetables, information on how to buy locally grown meat, and a list of 2009 local food events," says Andrea Geary, NIFFP coordinator.

To receive a copy of the new guide, contact Geary at andrea.geary@uni.edu or (319) 273-7883, or visit www.ceee.uni.edu and download a guide under Local Foods/Find Local Foods Near You.
