Greenmarket Regional Grains Project

"It all starts with the choice of grain, which is first a question of place and time."
-- Karen Hess, A Century of Change in the American Loaf

Greenmarket is pioneering the new frontier in local food: Grains. With our partners, we’re building the marketplace for grains grown and milled in the northeast. We are educating and connecting growers, processors, bakers and chefs -- sparking a rise in demand for local grains while helping ensure the crop supply and processing infrastructure are there to meet that demand. The evidence is clear: Grains have arrived. Greenmarket bakers use 65,000 pounds of local flour each month. New products made of local grains -- beer, crackers, pasta, spirits – are hitting the markets every day. Farmers are planting hundreds of new acres of grains each year. And millers are upgrading equipment to churn out more and better flours. This site celebrates those accomplishments and gives people the tools to get involved and help grains grow!
