A Twitter Fix for Locavores

Our new Facebook page has us thinking a lot about social media, and while we're not quite ready to start tweeting ourselves, we knew there must be a lot of great local food-friendly twitter accounts out there.

Imagine our delight when we found this list of the 43 Top Twitter Accounts All Eco-Foodies Should Follow on Earth Eats. From food policy to seasonal cooking to sustainable agriculture to gardening, this list has something for everyone.

Follow someone great on twitter? Leave a comment below!

We're on Facebook!

Yes, we're spreading the word about local foods on the social networking site, and we'll be honest, we want you to "like" us!

Each Friday we post a "Fresh Feature" - we highlight a food that's in season and invite comments on your favorite ways to prepare it. Plus, you can stay up to date with the latest news - market openings, special events, and more.

See you there!

The Today Show did a segment yesterday on a new study in the journal Pediatrics that associates pesticide consumption with ADHD in kids.

You can watch the short video of Dr. Nancy Snyderman discussing the study with Meredith Vieira here.

And what did the doctor recommend?  Really getting to know where your food comes from and how it's grown by buying locally!
