JDLF is more than just an online farmers market.
Our mission is to expand access to sustainable local food for the benefit of our community, economy, and environment.

We are proud to offer you LOCAL food. All our
producers live in or close to Jo Daviess County. This
means you are getting FRESH food, rich in nutrients
and tasting great, AND you are reducing your carbon
footprint while supporting our local economy! We work
hard to bring you high-quality products. Every time you
buy from JDLF, you are voting for a local food system.
This may seem like a small thing, but it can add up to
have a big impact. The more we can commit to buying
local food, the closer we come to creating a strong local
food system that is better for the environment, the
economy, and our health.
