I have a news nugget to share: The week of July 18-24 is Buy Local Week in Madison County, and you have plenty of terrific options waiting for you.
The restaurant showcase is most intriguing to me. It starts the 19th and runs the rest of the week. Chefs will be featuring delectable entrees that utilize local meats and produce.
The Poolville Country Store will feature Salad Field Greens from Smitty’s Market Farm, Sirloin Steak from Ingallside Meadows, Strawberry Sorbet from Mosher Farms, and Lavender Ice Cream from Linda’s Garden.
Gary’s Restaurant in Canastota is serving Eggplant Parmesan with a Roasted Vegetable Marinara, Grilled Mixed Vegetables over Angel Hair with Fresh Marinara, Broiled Haddock or Grouper with Roasted Red Peppers and Mushrooms, with choice of side. The products are from Tassone’s Farm, Swistak Farms, DeMario Farms, and Sorbello’s Produce.
There are too many good options to list, so visit the county website to learn more.
You also are invited to the Gala Fresh event on Sunday, July 18, at Endless Trails Farm and Open Farm Day on Saturday, July 24. You can learn more here.
C’mon, support your local restaurants and your local farmers. You’ll eat well and feel good.
