The Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture, a.k.a. PASA, is the Pennsylvania source to promote and find local food. Not only do they promote Pennsylvania products (and Pennsylvania is blessed with sustainable food production), but they promote the importance of eating local, and supporting sustainability with their Buy Fresh Buy Local campaign. In short, these are the go-to guys for Pennsylvanians to learn about local eating. Their mission statement is:
"Promoting profitable farms which produce healthy food for all people while respecting the natural enviornment."
PASA is for both the farmer, and the consumer. Their website has a nice map whereby you can enter your zip code and find local food. They are hooked up with Local Harvest, which is how I found the local organic spelt flour. "Local" I think should be more defined. Most locavores term local within 100 or 150 miles. Some go as far as 250 miles, others, myself included, term local within 30-50 miles. I live in a very rural area of Pennsylvania about 35 miles from any real "cities." When I'm not at work, I view "local" as within my valley -- about a 30 mile radius. So that's what I'd like to focus on as local. I can't see spending money and precious fuel on driving more than 30 or 40 miles just to get something local. Now if I'm in the City, and its on my way home (I work in the Capitol, Harrisburg), I'll certainly stop. But I won't leave the valley just to drive for food, thusl; I'm guilty of buying tofu and soymilk at the grocery story or other staples I can't get locally.
