EATING LOCAL: It's Not As Easy As It Sounds!

Ocean City, NJ Wednesday "Farmer's Market"
There's nothing quite so appealing as seeing an amazing array of fresh fruits and vegetables, homemade preserves and baked goods, plus local honey and a rainbow of fresh flowers at our Ocean City Farmer's Market!  It is a bonus that all this bounty comes to us. But only during the heart of the summer months and a few weekends in the fall.

And there's the problem. How do we get local, seasonal foods without driving many miles to visit far-flung farms and spending many hours on this weekly quest? (Not to mention the rising cost of gas.)  At the Scarborough Inn we are committed to providing fresh, local foods as much as possible...but it's not easy!

So, I was thrilled to read a guest post on this very subject on a blog called SIMPLE HOMEMADE that focuses on natural options and mindful living.  Take a look! You can sign up to receive regular posts if you're interested.
