It’s Farmer’s Market season around here, which makes me think of fresh, local food. Thankfully, we have no shortage of amazing local eateries in and around Chapel Hill. I was just reading Mr. Sugar’s take on the Farm to Fork event last night. I think I drooled a little at the thought of Ben Barker’s pulled pork barbecue. I checked out the new “Glass Half Full” in Carrboro last night with my friend Alison and enjoyed every morsel (the pommes frites were finger lickin’ good, along with every other plate we tried) — I’m eager to go back with Carter soon. And I just received an invitation to an upcoming Chatham County event that promises to have some tasty treats:
Come on out June 10th to The Plant in Pittsboro @ 5:00 and enjoy a slow foods dinner prepared by April McGregor, formerly with the Lantern Restaurant in Chapel Hill and Todd Dumke formerly of Crossroads Restaurant at the Carolina Inn.
Eating foods grown in Chatham County keeps our agricultural land productive, our farmers active and our economy strong. Come join us to enjoy this bounty, support our neighbors and meet your Farmers!! Funds raised go to the Pittsboro Farmer’s Market!
Send your check to:
The Abundance Foundation PO BOX 1113 Pittsboro, NC 27312
(Adults: $25, Kids: $10) before June 5th. (limited to 75 people)
Questions? firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-444-9300
All this talk of local food prepared the way God intended reminds me to carve out some Saturday morning time and get myself over to the Carrboro Farmer’s Market. It’s almost time for tomatoes!
