The Ark of Taste is the result of Slow Food’s ongoing effort to enhance biodiversity by locating and promoting delicious, sustainable foods that have been left behind by the industrial food system. Examples from Ohio include the pawpaw, our state native fruit, and the Buckeye chicken, a breed developed in the early 1900s by Mrs. Nettie Metcalf of Warren, Ohio. For a full list, visit the Slow Food USA Ark of Taste website.
Slow Food Columbus has produced a map of Ark of Taste producers, retail outlets, and farmers’ markets throughout Ohio so that you can explore Ark of Taste foods.

We will periodically update this map based on new information from LocalHarvest. If you offer Ark of Taste products and your farm, market, restaurant, or business is not on our map, please create a LocalHarvest listing that specifies which Ark products you offer and you will be added during the next update.
This map is meant to give a sense of which Ark products are available near you. If you are looking for a specific Ark food, you can also search Local Harvest directly.
