Covid-19 and Our Local Food System

At Known & Grown STL, we believe that access to local, sustainable food is essential during these uncertain times.

Click here to see what farmers offer online ordering and where to get local, Known & Grown farmers’ products during the pandemic. This document will be updated regularly to stay as accurate as possible.

Consider shopping from markets that source from Known & Grown farmers, like: Local Harvest Grocery, City Greens Market, Mac’s Local Eats, and Old North Provisions. Other ways to support farmers while receiving safe, healthy, local food is to join a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture program). We suggest Fair Shares CCSA or Local Harvest’s CSA.

Supporting our local food system helps farmers financially while feeding your family safe food. Local food has traveled less distance and is touched by less hands than commercially farmed products. You can help build a more resilient food system by participating in it, one bunch of kale at a time.

Of course, please take proper precautions to keep safe, and follow the CDC’s instructions about social distancing to the best of your abilities, especially if you are part of a high risk group.
