So technically my month-long eating local experiment is over (more to come on that), but I was hoping that I would be able to continue to imbue my daily eating habits with some local treats. Now The Man wants me to stop eating local. What a jerk that guy is.
In her Minnesota Monthly column, Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl (our local James Beard awarded writer and all-around Minnesota food champion and critic extraordinaire) has come across at least one restaurant that is being told it can't buy its food directly from the farmer's market or from the farmer. They MUST buy from distributors.
She's following up on what's going on and I'm going stay up to date on what she finds out. I'll post update here so the outrage can commence.
