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, deliveries, and pickups, and where to get local, Known & Grown farmers’ products during the pandemic.  This resource also includes information about CSAs, farmers markets, and restaurants that source locally who are offering curbside services and delivery services. It is updated regularly to stay as accurate as possible.

Supporting our local food system helps farmers financially while feeding your family safe, reliable, environmentally-responsible food. 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.
