Eat Local Week Planning in Progress

posted Thursday, March 24 by

We are only 3 months and 2 weeks away from the 1 event of the summer that highlights local food, local farms and local business!
We are very excited!!!!

Here are the latest and the greatest…

Eat Local First is a week-long celebration of local food in the Washington DC area. The focus will be on local farms, local
restaurants, and the organizations and people that are making locally-grown food more accessible in DC community.

From July 9 to 16, residents can participate in an array of events that celebrate the local food movement. From an urban foraging
adventure, to vegan/raw non-cooking demonstrations and a rocking farm-to-street party, Think Local First hopes inspire DC residents to incorporate eating local food into your everyday life.

Independent restaurants across DC will offer specials on dishes with
ingredients sourced from local farms. Savor local meats, seafood,
cheeses, breads, herbs, produce and other locally-grown products.
