Celebrate local foods with the Economic and Community Development Institute and Celebrate Local!
March 5, 2012 § Leave a comment
You know that eating local foods keeps dollars circulating locally, is environmentally friendly, and strengthens the local economy. And in a region that boasts some of the tastiest seasonal plants and food products, eating local is delicious. At the Economic and Community Development Institute, we support local farmers by providing them access to markets and resources through our Celebrate Local store at Easton.
We’d love for you to join us as we get creative with local foods in a cooking demonstration with Edible Columbus‘ Tricia Wheeler at the M/I Demo Kitchen at Easton Town Center. Invite a friend!
