Where to Buy Local NOW!

From the "better late than never" category,  I just found this great online map of DC area Farmers Markets from the Washington Post.  If your favorite market isn't listed, send in a note and they'll add it in.

There's also an interactive map of Community Supported Agriculture (CSAs) in the DC Area that you can search by pickup point.  Most CSAs are lining up clients for the fall season about now, so it's a good time to contact them.

While Whole Foods and Trader Joe's in DC are flying and trucking in high carbon produce (even tomatoes and peaches) from Mexico and California to sell,  there's a wealth of really good local food to be found now!
