What is JDLF?

Jo Daviess Local Foods is an online farmers' market connecting you to local producers. You order when you want; there is no requirement to order every week. There is also no minimum amount for each order. You can order from multiple producers, place multiple orders within a buying window, and pick up everything at one of our pickup locations (or have it delivered to your home)!

We are now delivering on Tuesdays AND Saturdays! For Tuesday delivery, shop between Friday noon to Monday noon. For Saturday delivery, shop between Wednesday noon to Thursday at 8:00 pm. Before shopping, make sure to select the correct pickup location so you can see the current buying window and the items available to you. If you want Saturday delivery, for example, you will need a Saturday pickup location. You can select this on the shopping page by clicking the location arrow near the top left corner of the page. read more...

Why Shop on JDLF?

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 and better for our health. read more...
