History The Buy Fresh Buy Local marking campaign began in 2006 in Lincoln and Omaha. The idea behind the campaign was to better connect local food producers in a nine-county area with local grocery stores, restaurants, farmers markets and other food outlets. Producers paid a $25 fee to have their information listed in an online directory and brochures. Those purchasing also pay a fee based on the size of their business to be included in the listing. The campaign is a collaborative effort of the Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Society, Nebraska Cooperative Development Center and Great Plains Resource, Conservation and Development Area.
