Well, what can I say but the truth. I sucked at week one of the Go Local Challenge. Time got away from me to get to a market. There was a "heat wave" for a few days this week that knocked power out to our place on Wednesday for about 7 hours (no cooking, no shopping, just sweating, a game of scrabble on the deck and knitting with a head lamp.) It was just one of those weeks.
However, I feel slightly redeemed with this act of local eating: for my job, I wrote a story about Seattle's newest farmers market coming to folks of downtown Seattle. And the best part about this story (aside from exposing more folks to local farmers), is that this new market is literally outside my office! Starting in the end of June, there will be NO excuse for me not to be shopping locally. I'll simply grab my cash (the ATM is also in my building), grab my bag, then walk out the door to go shopping!
