It’s been written: As the movement to eat what is
grown locally gains momentum, there is an increasing awareness of how best to
incorporate this philosophy into our everyday lives. We can grow our own food
and buy food grown locally at food cooperatives and markets, but what happens
when we eat out?

around the country dedicated to using only the freshest, locally grown
