Wednesday Late Eat Local Links
While it’s still Wednesday, here’s some links for mid-week reading:
Just Can It! The Sun Times has a whole host of articles related to home canning.
Trib has a little, little known background on Green City Market, including when they plan on organic certification insistence and who is not organic.
And the big local, local news, is the ability of Wal-Mart to foster off something called a “farmer’s market” on the South Side. Here’s Gaper’s Block’s take. Chicagoist digs in too. Zachary Adam Cohen has a little background on Wal-Mart.
Also at the Chicagoist, Chuck is hep on a local beer, Metropolitan’s Flywheel lager.
An interesting way they’re eating local in Tennessee.
Last, just remember, your favorite restaurant might use more local than you think (oh, if only!)
