Living local is a major theme in Fargo, North Dakota – it’s in the food, shops, and even our community efforts.

When the city isn’t frozen, you can help yourself to produce from the Little Free Garden sites scattered through the neighborhood, or score fresh fruits and veggies, gifts and street food at Red River Market, a buzzing farmers market held July through October.

If you’re looking for a place to eat, there are many local staples to choose from. Stop by Luna Fargo – an “everyday” comfort food celebration made from scratch with the finest local, organic and sustainable ingredients – or take a break at Bernbaum’s, a bagel and sandwich shop that supports local growers and ranchers whenever possible. You’ll also find local bratwurst topped with sauerkraut at Wurst Bier Hall, pizza crust made with North Dakota wheat at Blackbird Woodfire and Fargo-grown microgreens garnishing the late night happy hour nibbles at Mezzaluna.

And when you want to kick it up a notch, sample gin, vodka and whiskey from Proof Artisan Distillers, the city’s only hometown distillery. Or try a handcrafted beer made with local barley at Drekker Brewing Company. From start to finish, you can keep it local in Fargo.
