Buy Local Challenge is back

The Buy Local Challenge is back this year! Okay, I am a little late in mentioning it - this started Sunday - but the challenge is simple:

Stock up at local farms, farm stands and markets that offer genuine local products, and dine at restaurants featuring local food and wine.
I don't kow if having a garden counts, but since the challenge helps inject new money into the local economy my guess is no. But it is in the spirit of eating local. So look for foods made in Maryland - better yet, made close to where you live - at markets and restaurants near you.

And now, you can follow the Buy Local Challenge on both Facebook and Twitter.
