Recently, I read a tweet by Eva Sweet (@evasweetwaffles), one of the vendors that is has been a fixture at our market. Bamir sent out a link to a fascinating article in The Edmonton Journal by Liane Faulder on our local food culture here in Edmonton, and trends that we can expect to see in 2013 in our local food scene, from farmers’ markets through food trucks to restaurants. Read the full article here… Look for a growing love of local food in Edmonton in 2013

one grown, say, in southern California???… probably not,
if both are purchased in local markets and are at their ripest,
freshest, sweetest state. But I like to think that I can. It is a
romantic notion, to be sure… but one I intend to
experiment with at this year’s market. Why not try it with me.
Purchase tomatoes or berries, cucumbers or carrots,
apples or beets at a few different stalls this market
season and see if you can taste the difference that
comes from where and how they are grown.
Is there a taste difference, or is terroir simply a romantic notion?
