    Gov. Martin O'Malley is urging Maryland residents to buy locally produced food.

    The governor and the first lady will host a buy local cookout at the governor's residence in Annapolis on Thursday.

    It is the seventh annual cookout that is being hosted at the residence.

    The cookout highlights healthy recipes made with locally grown foods. It also aims to help farmers to calling attention to food produced in Maryland.
