the last couple of years have brought with them the cry to eat locally, eat fresh and pull back on processed foods. Jamie Oliver has pushed into the states with his food revolution by rallying the troops to eat fresh unprocessed foods that are lower in fat and easier on the body.
Foodstuffs in fine restaurants are often labeled ‘house-made’ and artisanal, noting the grower, rancher, farmer or chef. Food is becoming more ‘real’ to people and they desire to know the origins of food they are eating.
Farmers markets have popped up in every enclave and village with opportunities for locally grown produce, honeys and jams, sometimes even offering meat and fish or pasta.
So, eating fresh and directly from a farmer or local artisan who is hands on with your food crafting wonderful produce, meats, dairy and condiments is easier than ever.
