Second Friday of September's Locavore Challenge

Here are some of the items I purchased locally, either at Wegmans, Spars European Sausage Shop, Five Points Bakery, and the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market.

A variety of Hot Peppers and tomatoes from our garden and from Eden Valley Growers in Eden, NY (19 miles from Buffalo)
Green Leaf Lettuce, Romaine Hearts, Cilantro, Escarole, and Concord Grapes from Demarco Farms in Ripley, NY (77 miles from Buffalo)
Bread Flour and Regional Pantry Sunflower Seed Oil picked up from Five Points Bakery in the city's Westside
Gimmie Coffee (Not a locally sourced product but, it is roasted in Ithaca, NY. It is also Shade Grown, Organic, Fair Trade, and Bird Friendly.)
Ribs, sausage, ground pork and beef from Spars located in Black Rock on Amherst Street.

Here are some sites that I have been reading a lot of links and articles from. Sometimes I agree, sometimes I agree to disagree, but they each have a plethora of excellent sources to check out, ideas to consider, and ways to become more involved in the food conversation.
