Eat Local Challenge: Monday Lunch


Tomatoes from my garden. Mozzarella from Panzanella at the Nyack farm market. Leftover Dines farm chicken. And as a snack? The most delicious blackberries I’ve had in several seasons.


They came from Jamaica Dream Farm in Maryland, N.Y. and I got them at the Piermont farm market Sunday. Wow. Wow. Wow.

I also had a bit of a slip-up. A big box of snacks came into the office from Lesser Evil, the local company from Bronxville.


Whoops. Oh well, at least it’s a local company. What did you eat local for lunch Monday?
