Kick off Buy Fresh, Buy Local week in style

All the cool kids are eating local these days, and with all the terrific farmers’ markets around town (has anyone gotten a chance to check out the Headhouse Square Sunday market?) it’s even easier than ever. And here in Philly, July 14 through the 22nd is Buy Fresh, Buy Local week. Folks are kicking off the festival with a food and beer extravaganza at the Yards Brewery this Sunday, July 15th. It runs from 2 pm until 6:30 pm and tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door (although you should probably get your tickets before you show up, because this event has been known to sell out). They’ll be offering beef, veg or seiten cheesesteaks, on bread by Baker Street Bread Company (which I had a couple weeks ago and discovered is fantastic) as well as beer, gelato and some sides from area restaurants. It should be a good time.

    And don’t forget about farms IN the city. Check out some of the great fresh produce from Weavers Way Farm, Mill Creek Farm, Greensgrow Farm, Flat Rock Farm and a number of other emerging and established urban farms within Philadelphia city limits. We just took a tour of several of the farms. Check it out at this link:
