Today is the start of the Eat Local Challenge, which runs for the month of October. We plan on participating as often as possible this month. It should be easy since there are such great resources in Ontario that we can pick from. The produce and meat is really fantastic here. I think it also helps that we are in are area that has loads of farms and 2 farmers markets that are opened year round.
Next year we plan on putting in a vegetable and herb garden. Now that is eating locally!
What is our definition of local?
Food from within the province of Ontario. Either purchased at the farmers market or the grocery store.
Green tea at work
Food while I am in CA although I will eat local CA food whenever possible)
Food while in Europe (will eat local food while there)
Goal for this Challenge
To support the local farmers and businesses.
