When you sit down to eat a meal, each ingredient on your plate typically has traveled over 1,500 miles. Buying products from that far away takes money out of local economies, and puts it into national chains.
Premier Gourmet 100 encourages you to purchase products and ingredients made within 100 miles of where you live. Why? A dollar spent locally generates twice as much income for the local economy. The products have less distance to travel to reach you, meaning they are fresher, tastier, and have reduced transportation costs.
On June 6, Premier Gourmet will be celebrating local food at their Local Food Fair at their store in Kenmore at 3465 Delaware Avenue. From 11am-4pm you can meet local producers while sampling and tasting their products. This free event will feature some of the best products our region has to offer. Participating vendors include; Avenue Boys sausage, Baldwin Hill Farms maple, Brick Village Gourmet, Hill-n-Hollow Gourmet Vinegars & Chutneys, Lewiston Jellies and more…..
