Those of us who live in Madison know how lucky we are to have a wonderful Farmers’ Market, not to mention REAP–an organization committed to helping get local food into the mouths of the people of Wisconsin. Plus we have a host of restaurants committed to serving local foods and stores that help you buy from local farms.
What about you? Do you eat locally? My husband and I hit the Farmers’ Market every Saturday and usually the smaller market in our neighborhood during the week. And I often wander over to the Wednesday market right here off Capitol Square.
It’s not hard to eat local, and it makes your tummy and your conscience feel good. The farmers–and the farms–appreciate it too!
If you want to learn more about the local food movement, check out the Food for Thought Festival this coming Saturday, September 26, from 8am-1:30pm on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd off of Capitol Square.
Eat up, Madisonians!
Go green, be happy,
