This year's weeks repeats the local produce theme. More than 25 restaurants are creating special menus at prices ranging from $10.01 to $40.10. They're using local produce, meats, flowers and other items from July 26 to August 8, 2010.
The restaurant weeks kick off with the Howard County Film Feastival on July 20 at Clark's Elioak Farm in Ellicott City. They'll have a small farmers' market, samples of restaurant food made by local produce, and a screening of the 2009 documentary "Ingredients."
Admission is free, but they're looking for donations to provide families on the WIC program with coupons for the local farmers' markets. You need to register. It's limited to 100 guests. For more information, call 410-313-6500 or 410-313-2707.
