Local First Vermont

Local First Vermont is a program of VBSR 

Our mission is to preserve and enhance the economic, human, and natural vitality of Vermont communities by promoting the importance of purchasing from locally-owned independent businesses. We achieve this through education of citizens, businesses and local governments.
