Ann Anderson, Locally Delicious 2018 Local Food Guide

Since 2009 I have been adding to this blog — updating all of the interviews that have been done which are totaling over 250 now — and while doing that I have been sure to put in links to the websites and facebook accounts of everyone we have interviewed.  This archive has given people a way to easily look up local resources for locally produced food — however the thought of creating a written publication for people to access is extremely daunting to say the least.

Which is why I am so happy that Locally Delicious has produced a local food guide for the past 2 years.  In this guide you can find farmers’ markets, CSAs, Farm Stands, U-Picks, Community Gardens, Restaurants, Grocery Stores  and Caterers serving local food, Packaged Foods and Food Related Events.  Whew!

Listen to an interview with Heirloom Tomato Ann Anderson.

Copies of the guide are available throughout Humboldt and Del Norte counties — and you can check out their website at locally-delicious.org

2017 Local Food Month

While every month is local food month for some of us, the effort to draw focused attention to all of the wonderful local products is especially noticeable in September.  All over the country people are celebrating the bounty that comes from their region and in Humboldt we are are rich with all types of food in the month of September.

Years ago when the Eat Local Challenge began I participated and, excluding only a handful of ingredients, was able to complete the challenge.  For me, that challenge just helped me to think more consciously about the foods that I eat — and to develop a plan for acquiring those foods (like albacore tuna, canning 100 lbs of whole fish each year), and to incorporate them throughout the year.

There are many activities planned this year and you can go to the website to check them out.
