$10 a week for local food!

Today is already the last day of the season for the downtown farmers' market!  Can  you believe it?  Don't miss out this last opportunity to celebrate the harvest, purchase lots of delicious local food and scrumptious dishes while sipping some unique coffee.

The market is a hub of activities.  Today, the guest chef comes from the Night Kitchen and will be presenting a new wood fired oven pizza.

A visit to the Peterborough downtown farmers' market offers a perfect opportunity to think about the idea of shifting $10 a week to local sustainable food for the coming year.  This committment will have a direct impact on our local economy as well as the environment.  Research has shown that when 100 people shift $10 a week to local sustainable food for a year, they reduce greenhouse gases by the equivalent of nearly 10 cars.  They also create 1 local job in the process.

Is this a commitment you can make?  My next post will let you know where you can go to purchase local food.
