The site requires an overall designation of different organic certifications (with each certifier’s seal), organic with no certification (NO CHEM), biological [using no chemical herbicides/pesticides, but using chemical fertilizers] (BIO) or conventional (CONV) for growers to disclose. However, this is a general categorization only and specific information should be gathered from the producer whose products you want to buy. Local farmers and artisans seldom fit neatly into general categorizations!

Ask the producer! Producers in general love to talk about how their products are produced. By looking at their product descriptions and profile page, you can get some solid information about how their products are produced. More information can be found on their websites, blogs, and social media pages. Failure by producers to be truthful about growing practices or for their product to not be produced locally is cause for expulsion from the market.
