Buy Fresh Buy Local Celebrates the Harvest

Not sure what to do today? How about joining local foodies at a Buy Fresh Buy Local Harvest Celebration event? On the Outer Cape, you can learn about cranberries in Harwich or grill oysters in Eastham at Mac's Seafood. There will also be farm tours at Eldridge Farm in Brewster from 11 to 2. Or, journey down to the Falmouth area for fun activities in pumpkin patches.

Food has been on my mind a lot of late. Did you know that the nutrient value in foods is diminishing? Read why in Mother Earth News.

Also of note this week, Time Magazine reports that the Environmental Working Group will rate 10,000 foods for safety. The new database will be similar to Skindeep for cosmetics.

Finally, how do these dishes sound? Zucchini Manicotti w/ Herbed Almond Cheese, Hail Kale Caesar Salad, Living Lasagna, Sun Burgers, Thai Stir Fry w/ Basmati Rice & Almond Butter Sauce, and, for dessert, Pumpkin, Key Lime & Mudslide Pie? Yum! They're all available starting this month at 141 Bradford, in Provincetown. FarmMaid Food's Katie Reed has a new gig. She's serving up great raw dishes Sunday from 9 to 6, as well as every other day of the week. Check it out!
