Make A Plan For Your Local Veggies Using Advice From AnnieRie, Plus More Local Food Writing

If you care about food in Howard County, you should be reading the AnnieRie Unplugged blog -- especially its coverage of CSAs, the Food and Friends company, and other options for sourcing produce, meats and more.

Last week, Annie gave an update on how she is using Friends and Farms, farmers markets and other sources to push for good-tasting, often-local food.  If you like that, click around on the tags at the bottom of her posts -- like all her posts about CSAs.  Or check out the Kitchen Scribble blog's CSA posts.

Beyond Annie, there are a bunch of people writing about local food.  Links feel more important as I have less time to write and as all the newspapers and magazines seem to shrink their local coverage:
As always, HoCo Blogs is a great place to start if you're looking around for local writing.  The local food blogging appears on the HoCo Blogs page about food.

(Update:  I fixed an error above where I had meant Friends and Farms and written Food and Friesnds.)

I think you meant Friends and Farms. Food and Friends is a great nonprofit in DC, but not a supplier of farm-fresh food.

Thanks, HowChow for the shout out.

Yes, it is Friends and Farms, which is a Columbia based regional food supplier to individuals in the area.

My CSA is Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative, a coop of 100+ farmers in PA.

I use the two instead of grocery stores for most of my food.

Thanks for the shout-out!

The CSA landscape has definitely exploded over the past few years, and the farmer's markets are very approachable and convenient. I love that they're held on weekday afternoons.
