2007's Word of the Year?

Locavore!

"One who tries to eat locally and seasonally. Someone whose diet consists of food grown or produced within an area most commonly bound by a 100-mile radius of their home. Locavores usually shun large supermarket chains, opting for farmer's markets and local gardens instead. It is also a current trend for many high-end restaurants as well. It was coined in 2005 by a group of four women from San Francisco."

Did you know? Locavore was just declared Oxford American Dictionary's 2007 Word of the Year.

It's also sometimes spelled localvores.

Great News!
There's now a Winter Farmer's Market in our area!
YEA!!
(Hope to see you there!)
