There are two new options for Darienites to explore the organic and local food movement while helping to keep our community green. Whole Foods Market, known for its natural, organic offerings and efforts to protect the environment, will host its grand opening this week at the store located at 150 Ledge Road. Also, the Darien Farmers' Market has returned! Located behind the Post Road firehouse and across from the Goodwives Shopping Center, the market will run every Wednesday from 11am to 6pm through the holiday season. Produce, flowers, baked goods, meats, dairy - both of these venues have got it all, along with expertise and friendly advice to help you turn your weekday dinner into a spectacular culinary delight!
Still undecided about the entire local vs. non-local, organic vs. non-organic food movements? It's still too early to tell if this movement will be anything but a craze - but why not check out some of the books and DVDs we have on the subject and decide for yourself!
