The Slow Food Snail of Approval Program is a directory of the restaurants, food and beverage artisans, stores, and markets and farms that, because of their contributions to the quality, authenticity and sustainability of the food supply have been awarded the SFMN Snail of Approval.

As we celebrate our local foods and recognize those who grow and/or prepare it, we invite you to get in touch and meet these dedicated individuals. This guide is growing and changing continuously. Every effort has been made to keep this information up to date and accurate but things do change. Please contact us with additions, comments, or questions about our listing.
