SEVEN DAYS OF LOCAL DELIGHTS
Just so you know, Claire works part time off the farm for the Red Hills Small Farm Alliance, and has been busting her buns for the past 6 months planning a brand new local food week. Seven Days of Local Delights is a celebration of local food happening the week of October 21-27, right after Farm Tour. SO YOU BETTER CHECK IT OUT OR YOU’LL HURT HER FEELINGS! You can participate in 17 events around town, and eat out at a dozen restaurants serving local food specials. This Local Food Week was the brainchild of the the farmer non-profit that brings you the Red Hills Online Market. Support our local food movement and check out these events!
