     Title: NOLA Locavores Announce 2011 Eat Local Challenge

The newly formed NOLA Locavores has issued a challenge: for the month of June, eat only food grown, raised or produced within 200 miles of New Orleans. Shopping at the CCFM makes this a far less daunting task. For more information on Eat Local Challenge guidelines, events, recipe contests and prizes, visit nolalocavore.org.



In collaboration with NOLA Locavores, the Crescent City Farmers Market is offering two incentives to take the Eat Local Challenge. Those who sign up for the challenge will recieve a $5 discount on our Crescent City Farmers Market Cookbook. Eat Local Challenge participants can also take part in an Around The Radius Recipe Contest. Points will be awarded to recipes that include foods from a wide variety of farms and waterways within the 200 mile radius of the Eat Local Challenge. A final taste off (open to the public!) will take place at the CCFM Saturday, June 25th.

Click here for information on recipe contest rules and prizes, including an overnight stay at Cottage on the Farm and CCFM merchandise. Email recipe submissions to nolalocavores@gmail.com with the subject “ CCFM Around the Radius Recipe Contest" by June 20th.
