The Edible Eat Drink Local Week is fast approaching. This is our second year participating in this tri-state effort to raise awareness of eating and drinking local. Think of it as a restaurant week with a mission!!
Edible Buffalo along with several of its sister publications; Edible Finger Lakes, Edible Hudson Valley, Edible Manhattan, Edible Brooklyn, Edible Queens, Edible East End, Edible Jersey, and Edible Nutmeg (Connecticut) will be doing various activities with partners from across our communities to highlight restaurants, eateries, shops, wineries, breweries, farmers, and artisan producers!
In our community, we’ve partnered with Buffalo First!, Buffalo Rising and The Good Neighborhood to bring you a a daily helping of a great EAT destination which features locally sourced products and a great DRINK destination which features and/or produces local libations. In addition, we encourage you to embrace our early summer harvest and frequent your local farmers market, farm stand, or wherever you can find local produce, meats, cheese, and the like, to show our love and support for the many diverse growers found all across our region.
Please join us in celebrating our local food system! Whether you dine out or cook in and drink in between, we urge you all to get out there and celebrate the ingredients, the landscape and people behind our plates.
We will be posting twice daily starting this Friday, June 22, 2012 and ending July 1, 2012. Keep an eye out on our Facebook page and follow our activity on our Twitter by using the hashtag: #eatdrinklocal #wny to stay in the know during Eat Drink Local Week.
