Lots of fun stuff around the world of local food.
The papers are all over local this week. I could pretty much just link to the food sections of the Trib and the NYTimes.

The Sun Times is not nearly as local focused, but does hit on a major locavore concern, what to do with so much rhubarb this time of year.
Adrian and Maggie just finished their year of 100 mile local near Houston. They’ve made some adjustments going forward. Keep up with them here.
