The High Desert Food & Farm Alliance (HDFFA) would like to recognize food businesses going above and beyond with local food sourcing and contributions to our Central Oregon community. HDFFA considers local food to be that which is grown, raised and crafted in the Central Oregon high desert. Farmers and Ranchers voted for food businesses that purchase products regularly from them and those businesses that they consider leaders in local food. Please join us in congratulating farmers’ top picks and our 2019 Local Food Champions!
Runners up: Deschutes Brewery and Foxtail Bakeshop & Kitchen
Runners up: Dump City Dumplings and El Sancho
Runner up: Newport Ave Market
Specialty Food Items
Runner up: Southwest Salsa
In the end, our goal is to encourage local food consumers to thoughtfully consider the sources of their food, as well as the steps it takes to get to the market and onto their plates. Try dining out at or trying products from these outstanding food businesses. Look for the HDFFA Partner Sticker identifying businesses sourcing local and use our Food & Farm Directory as your guide to connect directly with our network of high desert agricultural producers and food businesses!
