It’s time to take the Buy Local Challenge!
Governor Larry Hogan has declared the week of July 17-25, Buy Local Week in Maryland.
Celebrate Maryland food, farms and watermen by including one local item in the your daily meals. July is the time of plenty in our state. Sweet corn, peaches, melons, greens .. all are coming in from local farms. Local cheeses, local wines, beers, spirits … all are ready to enjoy.
The Chesapeake, the nearby Atlantic and tributaries are swimming with sustenance. Try a blue catfish filet and you’ll be supporting a local waterman. Slurp a farmed oyster with a bit of locally made hot sauce! You get the idea. Have fun!
