The Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA) released the Buy Nevada Holiday Gift Guide for the 2015 holiday season.

Available online, the Buy Nevada catalog highlights Buy Nevada members. With more than 100 businesses from around the state, showcasing the many food and agriculture products produced or processed in Nevada to help consumers shop local on “Shop Local Saturday.”

“We encourage Nevadans to shop local and to ‘Buy Nevada’ year-round, but especially during the holidays,” Jim Barbee, Director of the NDA said. “If each family in Nevada spends just a fraction of their holiday shopping at a Nevada business, we will all help to strengthen our economy and boost local business activity.”

Because the holiday guide is statewide and many Buy Nevada members sell online, Nevadans have many options to support Nevada retailers, restaurants, producers and processors.

The mission of Buy Nevada is to spread awareness of what food and agriculture businesses and opportunities are in the state of Nevada, and to create a platform that informs consumers about opportunities in the Nevada food and agriculture sector.  

The Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA) promotes a business climate that is fair, economically viable and encourages a sustainable environment that serves to protect food, fiber and human health and safety through effective service and education. NDA includes the divisions of Administration, Animal Industry, Consumer Equitability, Food and Nutrition and Plant Industry.
