SF Local Farm Foods Calculator
from Francisco Hernández
Please excuse my absence over the last couple of weeks. I have had other things on my mind. I promise I will get back to you with the answer to that quiz I left you with as soon as I can. It involves uploading some more pictures otherwise I'd tell you right now. (No one has got it quite 100% right yet, so you there is time for one last attempt, it's the first gift that seems to be eluding people).
I am very excited abut heading the market this morning. Not only will I be meeting a certain blogger for the first time, it will be my first real visit to the market in weeks, for various reasons with solid alibis that have determined to keep me away from it for a while.
I went to check on CUESA's newsletter in order to attempt some pre-market planning this morning only to find they hadn't written one for this week. This serendipitously led me to last week's newsletter instead which in pointed me in the direction of a local blog called Local Foods Sf, written by Francisco Hernández amd described as connecting local food producers and consumers. Most interestingly Hernández, with the help of a friend, has created a Local Foods Calculator into which you can enter your zip code and match it with a choice of local farms in order to see how far food has travelled to get to your door. I certainly wish I'd had access to that when I wrote this.
