I love eating locally; I love playing a game with myself of “how local can I get!” So do you! Thanks for the wonderful emails!
Karen has given me permission to share one of her suggestions with all of you:
“Near the end of the season, I ask my favorite farmers (at the Farmers market) for their contact information. Then, after the market season has ended, I stay in touch with them. One farmer, in particular, has commented how appreciated he feels by this personal contact and his wife loves sharing her favorite farm recipes with me. It encourages me through the cold, winter, Minnesota months to “stay local.”
Wonderful idea, Karen! I know just which farmer I am going to chat with!
What have you been trying to eat more local foods?
We would love to hear from you!
