I had a great time on Brian Lehrer this morning (you can listen to the audio and find out about next week’s show here). The callers were really interesting and smart, and one of them wanted to know how she can get local produce in Bensonhurst, where she lives (she just moved there from Vermont, where, as she put it, the local food movement is decades old while in Bensonhurst it seems decades away!). I suggested joining a CSA, and many people wrote in on the Brian Lehrer website to suggest the Just Food website as a great resource for, among other things, locating a CSA near you. If you go to it, you can search by zip code and take it from there. There’s also a ton of other really great information there about local food, farms, and related subjects.
It’s pouring rain here in New York, and at the suggestion of a friend I think I’m going to spend the afternoon roasting squash, a very seasonal activity, indeed.
