An international Slow Food holiday is upon us; Terra Madre Day is celebrated worldwide with the goal of bringing together communities and their local food sources. This December 10th make an effort to consider how far your food has traveled to your plate. If it’s hard to determine, check out www.realtimefarms.com to see just how much of a trek your bacon made before it saw your breakfast plate. To take a step in the local direction, visit the Lexington Cooperative in Elmwood or Farmers and Artisans in Williamsville for a variety of different local produce and goods, and knowledgeable staff who can help you navigate your way through the deliciousness of going local. Happy Terra Madre Day here in Buffalo-Niagara and around the world. Each choice makes an impact.
