2014 Weekly Challenge #26: Eat LOCAL!

 

You hear it all the time: Eat Local! But why?

Here are 8 reasons to eat local foods (taken from about.com):

1. Local Foods Are Fresher (and Taste Better)

Food that was picked within the last few days tastes way better than food that was picked (unripened) and trucked thousands of miles to get to you. And fresh food lasts longer, too.

2. Local Foods Are Seasonal (and Taste Better)

Savor the Tomato During "Sacratomato Week" July 21-27!

Savor the Tomato During "Sacratomato Week" July 21-27!

Get ready to savor the tomato when the Sutter District presents the first-ever “Sacratomato Week” July 21 through 27, 2014.  All week long, the vibrant and engaging restaurants, bars and nightclubs located in midtown’s Sutter District will celebrate Sacramento’s signature commodity with tomato-themed menu options, drink specials and more. 

“With our deep roots in agriculture coupled with the city’s popular ‘Farm-to-Fork’ focus, Sacramento is ripe for an event that celebrates the tomato,” said Emily Baime Michaels, Executive Director of the Midtown Business Association (which manages the Sutter District). “The Sutter District is a lively and fun group of restaurants, bars and nightclubs and we’re excited to invite the community to celebrate our first ‘Sacratomato Week’ in July. Then next year, we plan to make it an even bigger initiative that will also include a family-friendly festival as a finale to the special week-long celebration.”

Isleton Cajun & Blues Festival Moves To Delta Loop

Isleton Cajun & Blues Festival Moves To Delta Loop

      The Isleton Cajun & Blues Festival has moved to a new location for the 2014 event. Still in Isleton, technically, but not in the city limits anymore. They have moved to the Delta Loop which is just a few minutes away. The event location is at the B&W Resort Marina and Boat storage. The Isleton Chamber of Commerce resurrected the festival in 2011 after the "Isleton Crawdad Festival" was disbanded along with the old Chamber that promoted it for years.  

The business owners and residents of the delta loop have welcomed the festival with open arms and the "entire atmosphere and positive attitude is making a world of difference" said Jean Yakatobi, event foreperson.  With the marinas and docking availability the Loop is opening a whole new avenue for boaters and yachts to come from the bay area which will enhance the "family friendly"  direction the Chamber has achieved.
