Open for Good Local Food

Behind that carrot-orange door, things are happening this week: vacuuming, painting, cleaning, decorating. Why?

What you see here is the front door of Local Roots Market, and on Saturday from 10 AM to 3 PM, we're hosting an open house for the community to come by and check out the place. Stop by for hot coffee or cider, home-baked goodies, and possibly even samples of future products from producer members -- then wander around the building and find out more about eating locally, even in the winter.

Yes, the winter -- because Local Roots will officially open on Saturday, November 7! All through November we will host a Saturday indoor farmers' market from 10 AM to 3 PM with local farmers and other producers selling fresh fruit and vegetables, frozen meats, jams, breads, and other good stuff. And this is just the beginning!

More is scheduled to happen at Local Roots throughout November, and we've already had a lot of good press about the opening, but all of this will mean that I'll be spending a lot of my free time on the planning and marketing of events -- and therefore blogging might be a little light. Bear with me!

Or come to Local Roots and see for yourself!
