Restaurants featuring the Taste the Local Difference® logo worked to source locally grown Michigan produce and foods on their Restaurant Week menu. Chefs from these restaurants participated in a pop up farmers market and ordered a minimum of $500 in products from local farmers.
Taste the Local Difference® is Michigan’s local food marketing agency. They are proponents of the Michigan Good Food Charter and are signatories to their resolution seeking to have 20% of all food sold in Michigan come from Michigan farms and food businesses by 2020. TLD helps food businesses and the communities they serve benefit from the economic value of local food, while ensuring that fresh, healthy, local food is available to all consumers.
Taste the Local Difference is excited to partner with Ann Arbor Restaurant Week this year to add more local food to your menus.
