There is a market across the street that I adore and some of the produce is local but not all of it. When I can get to the greenmarket in Union Square on a weekend, I do but it’s definitely something I support.

I’ve found that while it was hard at first to figure out what farms grow what, where to get different staples, etc., that got much easier very quickly. It seems to be a fast learning curve – even after a few months, a pattern has set in of which farmers’ markets I go to, what days… what to expect in different months. My family noted that it seemed like a rat race on weekends at first, but now I get all of our food fairly smoothly from the markets and the CSA. I still fumble a bit, but it gets easier each week.

Have you been to the different farms around here lately? It is great activity. Even without the many benefits of eating locally involved, it is just fun 🙂

I too was following Tammie (of Ox Hollow) around to swipe more samples. And I too took home the sausage for dinner that night. It became the basis for my local meal of the week!
