What is Local Food Month all about?
Celebrate local flavor at its peak all month long with the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA). This 7th annual celebration of local foods in Western Pennsylvania boasts over 50 unique events!
Consumers are becoming more and more interested in an “authentic,” as well as healthy food experience, and this involves knowing more about WHERE their food comes from, HOW it was produced, and WHO produced it. A revelry of locally-grown, seasonal foods and the people who produce them, Local Food Month is a perfect opportunity to highlight the bounty of good food found right here in our own neighborhoods.
It is also a chance to learn more about the amazing Buy Fresh Buy Local restaurant and business partners in your area who support the local agricultural community by sourcing the freshest local ingredients from the region to prepare a wide variety of delicious cuisines and beverages!!
