Why you should go. In a world of locavores, freegans, and 100-mile diets, it is easy to miss the forest for the trees with seasonality and local food. We often walk past, or over, the most local of ingredients on our way to and from the latest farm-to-table restaurant, missing the simplest form of connection to our lived environment.
