Eat Local Sedar/Meet the Beet in Logan Square Sunday

March 12, 2010 at 8:43 am

My lonsman at the Oak Park Temple have an in with the Logan Square Farmer’s Market.  This year some of the folks at OPT (not me even) thought, how could we make our forthcoming sedars for the Passover holiday more local.  They realized that a lot could be had from the Logan Square Market including bitter herbs, eggs, and lamb shanks.  Oddly enough, as most horseradish is grown in Illinois, there is none of the tear inducer to be had.  There will be volunteers from Oak Park Temple at the market the next two weeks helping shoppers make their sedars as local as possible.  I specifically will be the volunteer this Sunday from around 1230 until the market wraps up.  I’m there not just to help you make your sedar more local but to help you live your life more local.  Stop by.  Bring questions.  Meet.  And make all your meals, not just your holiday meals as local as possible.

Meet the Beet at the Logan Square Farmer’s Market is just one of many, many eat local activities this weekend.  The Local Beet will be at the FamilyFarmed Expo and Chicago Food Policy Council Summit all day Friday (with hopefully some live blogging).  Tonight, we will be enjoying Localicious.  Saturday, myself and Melissa Graham are speaking.  Green City Market goes on Saturday.  And then also on Sunday, the Market Watch’s Robin Schirmer throws another winter farmer’s market.  Don’t show up at the wrong place.  Our very full Local Calendar can be found here.
