ST. PAUL  (AP) – The 30th anniversary edition of the Minnesota Grown Directory is now in season.

The director lists hundreds of places to find locally grown foods. It makes it convenient to locate orchards, farmers’ markets, berry farms and garden centers where consumers can purchase products directly from the grower.

The cover features Minnesota Grown spokeswoman Carrie Tollefson, a 2004 Olympic runner who grew up in Dawson in western Minnesota.

She says buying local is a great way to support Minnesota farmers.

More than 190,000 copies of the free guide are distributed by tourist information centers, libraries, retailers, and other supporters of local growers. They’re also available by calling Explore Minnesota Tourism at 1-888-VISITMN (1-888-847-4866). The guide is also offered online as a searchable database on the Minnesota Grown web site at http://www.minnesotagrown.com .
