I Wish There Was Better, More Sustainably Raised Food Here...

Oh wait, there IS!
Swap your homegrown produce on Veggie Trader

One of the painful things about moving from San Francisco to Baltimore is the lack of good food sources here in Baltimore. Healthy local foods of all kind flood San Francisco and the result is a food paradise for everybody. Shoppers have hundreds of choices, from great small stores, abundantly rich farmer's markets, and of course all those epic restaurants. SF has SO MUCH local bounty, you take it for granted. Here in Baltimore I'm actually shocked and appalled by the lack of good produce and variety.

The thing that frustrates me about the food situation here in the Mid Atlantic is that it simply does not have to be this way. Plants grow well here, there's plenty of sun and rain. Spring, summer & fall are all good growing climates here. There's NO EXCUSE for bad food and certainly for lack of choice!

Why can't the Mid Atlantic experience an Alice Waters/Michael Pollan inspired food renaissance? Aren't we decades overdue?
