Carbon fast – Day 10

Look to purchase locally grown food today.  Plan to walk to a farmers’ market this weekend or consider joining a community-supported agriculture (CSA) group that delivers local produce (www.localharvest.org).

If I designed the calendar, I would have saved this tip for as late in the game as possible to increase the chances that farmers’ markets would actually be open in central and northern latitudes.  They failed to consult me on this, but, by some stroke of luck, the local eating tip just so happens to coincide with the Schlafly/Maplewood winter market tomorrow (Saturday, February 27th).  While produce will be limited at this time of year, you can shop for local eggs, cheese, jams, salsas, and meat (if you swing that way).  Click here for more details.
