Eat Local Challenge

It just came to my attention that we’re in the middle of the annual Eat Local Challenge.  While the month of the challenge varies by community, for Minnesota this year, it’s set for Aug. 15- Sept. 15th and is being sponsored by the neighborhood co-ops and farmer’s markets.  You can find more information about Co-ops and the challenge here.

This is really the best time to give it a shot.  The farmer’s markets are brimming with fresh produce, farm raised meat, poultry and other local goods like bread and jam.  If farmer’s markets aren’t your thing, try checking out some restaurants that make a point of supporting local farms, eatwellguide.org is a great way to search for everything from fancy dinners to a corner bakery.  I hope this gets you out there and you get to try some new foods.  The best part of the whole challenge, you get to EAT!
