Eat Local Challenge: Resources


As we set out on our challenge to “eat local” for one week, we will inevitably ask the question, “Well, what can I eat?”  That’s a good question and I imagine that it would take each one of us quite a bit of time to find an answer.  So, rather than each one of us working hard to find those answers, why don’t make things easier by working together to share our “eat local” resources?

I would like to use this post as a place where people can add comments which give the class ideas about where they can purchase food that is grown and produced within our 250 mile limit.  Also, don’t just add the name of a place below, but also give us your evidence that it is within our circle, allowing us to assess the validity of your claim.

Comment below.

    If you live in SE Portland, near the Holgate-Woodstock neighborhood, there is a great little produce store called Limbo. It is next to the Trader Joe’s near SE 39th and Holgate, and most of the produce they carry is local, organic and, perhaps more importantly, pretty affordable.

    Here is a link to a list of local farmer’s markets, along their locations, dates and times. It is nearing the end of the season, so you might want to try and call or email someone, just to make sure the market is still taking place.
