New York Statewide Eat Drink Local Week

After you’ve had your fill of brew during Buffalo Beer Week, you can look forward to another regional event based on all things edible. There’s a big buzz when it comes to sourcing our food locally – more and more restaurants are going to the farm community (status of farms) to supply them with fresh, organic produce, meats, etc. Just look at the number of farmers markets that have sprung up, with more on their way. For years convenience was king. Thankfully the growing movement to source locally is making the process more and more convenient each year – if you don’t have time to go the food, the food will come to you.

“Many of our restaurant and winery partners already use locally sourced ingredients on their menus, so this is an opportunity to showcase their efforts,” says Lisa Tucker, publisher of Edible Buffalo. “We also want to continue to make the connection between farm and plate for consumers. With over 7500 farms in the eight county region, we cannot afford to ignore how important local agriculture is to our food economy.”
