2023 NH Eats Local Month

In the Granite State, we Live Free + Eat Local, especially during August for NH Eats Local Month! All month long, we invite everyone to celebrate the food that is farmed, fished, and produced here in New Hampshire. Join us!

2023 NH Eats Local Month is over. But! That does not mean your celebration of local food has to be over. Use the resources we shared all August long to keep on eating local all year long.

The Live Free + Eat Local Challenge

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Live Free + Eat Local Challenge during 2023 NH Eats Local Month. Winners were selected and announced on September 7.

Each August, during NH Eats Local Month, we challenge Granite Staters to eat food at or from as many New Hampshire farms or food businesses as possible. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Eat food grown, caught, or produced in New Hampshire from farms, farm stands, farmers’ markets, co-ops and grocery stores, restaurants, breweries, CSAs and CSFs, or any other local business that sells or serves local food.

Step 2: Enter your information and the information of the business you ate local food from into the Live Free + Eat Local Challenge entry form.

Step 3: Repeat! Every time you eat local food from a New Hampshire business, you can enter the Challenge. The more entries you submit, the better your chances are to win a prize!
