Locally grown foods at the supermarket

curiousbaker | Jan 6, 2006 10:33 AM

I'm trying to put together a list of New-England foods that are available in supermarkets, health food stores or gourmet markets. I'm not so much interested in things that are made locally from ingredients grown elsewhere (like Grandmother's mincemeat or Drew's Salad Dressing), but in things that are actually grown in New England. I would also be interested in foods that are primarily local but include some other ingredients (like RealPickles, which are made locally from local vegetables, but presumably use non-local spices). So far my rather short list consists of:

Wyman's frozen wild blueberries
A-1 State of Maine line of dried beans
Vermont Family Farms milk
Gourmet Greens sprouts (VT)
Kenyon's Grist Mill Flint Cornmeal
The organic mushroom company out of CT whose name
escapes me at the moment
Bar Harbor canned seafood and clam juice
Stonewall Kitchen's Maine sea salt
Cabot dairy products

A few items I'm not sure about:
Kate's Homemade Butter
Vermont Butter and Cheese Company butter
and creme fraiche

I'm not including the large number of local cheeses, honeys and maple syrups, because there are too many to keep track of. But if any other chowhounds know of other local foods that are available at the grocery store, I would appreciate any leads. Thanks.
