A Michigan Local Food Marketing Firm, Taste the Local Difference (TLD) recently expanded to West Michigan to continue its promotion of businesses that make up our local food system. Through partnerships with local businesses, we celebrate small farmers, as well as restaurants, retailers, event organizers and many others that make local sourcing a priority. Every bit of our work has one underlying mission – to get more local food sold. Our Grand Rapids-based Local Food Coordinator, Rebecca Henderson, is excited to connect with the swiftly growing local food movement in the West Michigan region. Check out these ways Taste the Local Difference can benefit your business!

Get in the Local Food Guide for Michigan!

Each year, TLD publishes a glossy, magazine-style Local Food Guide, a directory of local food businesses, seasonal recipes, and stories of local food champions. For the first time, our 2020 Local Food Guide will cover the entire state! With copies distributed statewide, this guide will highlight all of our hardworking partners and serve as a free resource for consumers searching for local food. Packed with seasonal recipes, maps, and more, these Guides are a useful resource all year long.

Craft a Personalized Partnership

Taste the Local Difference provides affordable marketing packages and a-la-carte services that can match any budget. In addition to being featured in our printed Local Food Guide and online directory, partners can opt for B2B Connections, Print and Digital Advertising, Social Media promotion and more!
