Eat Local Week from Edible Austin

eat-local-logoA couple of years ago I met Marla Camp at a Slow Food reception.  She told me she was starting a foodie magazine called Edible Austin.  Since then I have fallen in love with this gem  The photography is beautiful and the articles are educational and entertaining.  I seem to run into Marla wherever there are Austin foodies and artisinal local food producers.  She is a true champion for our local scene.  Edible Austin is sponsoring an Eat Local Week with some really cool events.  You can probably catch me at the Drink Local soiree.  Eat Local Week is an invitation to Central Texans to explore and celebrate the abundance of local food and to raise money for Urban Roots, a youth development program that uses sustainable agriculture as a means to transform the lives of young people and to increase the access of healthy food in Austin.
