It's Local Foods Week!

Local Matters has declared the next seven days Local Foods Week.  They have arranged a plethora of local food activities including a Market to Market ride going on now.  Alex, Lil, and I have tickets for the Jeni's Tour Tuesday and I'm trying to figure out how to catch Brother's Drake Meadery at one of their tastings.

I am leading a canning demonstration at Oakland Nursery's newly renovated education space on Sunday October 10 from 12 - 1 pm during their fall festival. Come drop in and taste some homemade jams!

If you're up for it (we are!) take part in the Local Matters Eat Local Challenge this week for a chance to win prizes while eating delicious local food.

Cleveland is also hosting a local foods week October 2 - 10 with activities that make me want to flee northward.

I know everyone was carefully planning local foods week to coincide with my thirtieth birthday on Saturday. I can't think of a better way to celebrate than eating delicious locally grown foods. This week will be Oh So Good!
