Call for submissions - 2011 Eat Local Guide

For the past several years the CORV Local Foods Initiative has compiled and updated a listing of local farms, farmers' markets, vineyards, farm markets/ retailers, and restaurants growing, selling and utilizing local and sustainable foods creating the CORV Eat Local and Sustainable Guide.

We are again updating this listing. If you are a local grower, producer, restaurant that uses food, vineyard/ winery, retailer that sells locally grown food and you would like to be listed go to www.EatLocalCORV.org and submit your information.

If you are an aficionado of local foods and have noticed we've missed some of your favorite grower, producers, restaurants, etc. go to the website and send us your recommendations via the contact link.

The effort does take time, energy and monetary resources. If you would enjoy contributing please let us know via the website contact information as well.

The 2011 guide is scheduled for release in April. Thanks to all those who support this effort and utilize the information!
