Eat Local!

This Sunday, Fairhope, AL will host the second annual Moveable Feast. The meal features fresh, local ingredients prepared by local chefs. Most ingredients are grown in south Alabama or are sourced from farms in Alabama and along the Gulf Coast. The mission is to reconnect the diner with what is local and fresh, and with the people who cultivate it. The meals are set outdoors at communal tables to help form a connection to the source of our food and the people who make it possible.

If you don't have a Moveable Feast in your area, connect with your food and those who produce it by shopping at farmer's markets and co-ops. Shopping and eating locally allows you to purchase produce at the peak of freshness, making it more nutritious and better tasting.
