This zucchini was picked just this morning and served “same-day” fresh at Olga Gallery, Cafe, & Bistro. Now, that’s local food.
Here’s what I bought from a local farm…Wooleylot Farm situated in Coudersport, Pa. about 4 hours ago (Italian heirloom zucchini & farm fresh eggs for about $20). In this case the farmer visited me, but we purchase produce every Friday from Alvie & his fellow farmers at our local Farmer’s Market. I’m going to post a follow up photo of what the zucchini became for a fortunate patron a little more than an hour later. — with Olga Gallery, Cafe, & Bistro
Sauteed locally grown Italian heirloom zucchini was the vegetable of the day…this particular customers plate including the dish of zucchini came back empty…thanks Wooleylot Farm! — with Olga Gallery, Cafe, & Bistro
Here’s the Goodfor20 promotional request: How does it work? Simple, visit a farmers market and make a purchase. Then add a photo with a brief description of what you purchased and any other positive experience that came out of the visit to a farmers market:
- Visit a farmers market (in this case the farmer visits you) and make a purchase.
- Take a photo of what was purchased.
- Note any positive experience about your visit. And, include the name and location of the farm or market that you visited.
- Email your photograph and description to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you include your home address in your email, Goodfor20 will send you a sticker.
Goodfor20 is designed to be a fun activity using facebbook to promote local food. Let me know want you think.
