Know anyone who sells local food?

If you or someone you know sells food locally in North Dakota, please send them our way! Vision West ND is working on creating a “Local Food Finder”.

Producers, restaurants, and grocery stores will be listed on this resource free of charge to them! So, if you know anyone who would be interested in this unique opportunity or want more information give them our contact info please and thank you! Email or call our office at 701-483-2801. We look forward from hearing from you!

A match made in heaven!

While you and a local business are the real match, we are proud to announce that we have made a relationship with “”. This site has SO many resources available to anyone who has any interest in buying local or creating awareness for the topic. We are extra excited to announce this, because not only did we become members, but because they looked at our website and saw the awesome things we have been doing (with all of your help), they have bumped us up to a Premium membership.

Big thank you to them, and a huge shout out to everyone who has been involved in GoLocal and Vision West ND to help make them realize how amazing we are.

Here is what they are all about taken right from their website:

“Independent We Stand is all about independently owned businesses across the country reaching out to their communities and educating their neighbors about the many benefits of "buying local."

A locally supportive world, is the kind of world WE want.

Sometimes it is easy to forget how much difference we can make in our communities with something as simple as shopping close to home at a small business, but we assure you, what seems small to you, is huge to any small business owner. Thank you all for considering buying local!

Localism: Week 12: Conclusion

What do you think is going to be under the tree, just for you? Maybe a beautiful hand-crafted wallet bought from a local shop with your taste in mind, or maybe it’s something that was cheaply made in another country that will last about four hours. We aren’t biased or anything, just wondering. Either way, it’s the thought that counts, and we wish you the merriest of Christmas’s! This wraps up our 12 week discussion of localism, if anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact us!
