We’ve finally made it through the colder months, when CSAs and farmer’s markets offer trimmed-down selections and dimmer colors. Now in the heart of spring, local farmers offer a renewed selection, driving local connoisseurs from miles away. What do you appreciate most about local eating? What items do you refuse to buy at the store?
I recently stumbled across LocalHarvest.org, a website that offers a local search for CSAs, farmer’s markets, Co-ops and all things local eating. I will soon be relocating to Quincy, Massachusetts, and was blown away by the detailed results LocalHarvest offered. I now have a personal collection of sites, addresses, ratings and offerings, all waiting for my arrival. Even in my own area, I noticed a number of locations that flew under my radar, opening up dozens of new possibilities.
