Commit to Local in Your Community

Bowl of chili with the word Chilifax overlayedWhen you eat local where you live, you build a powerful connection between food and community. It¹s good for you, it puts more money in the hands of local producers, fuelling the local economy and making our communities stronger. Fall is the perfect time to add more local food to your life. It is literally all around us.
 
Our local farmers are busy harvesting their fall bounty, which means apples, squash, beans, and root vegetables are all at our fingertips. Farmers markets and grocery stores are full of local produce.  In addition to local produce, don¹t forget about local eggs, cheese and dairy products, baked goods, meats, seafood, pickles, preserves and more.
 
Wherever you live in Nova Scotia, you have local food options close by. With a little creativity, you can turn those local items into something delicious. To show you how fun it can be, we made some stops in local communities around the province including Port Williams, Tatamagouche and Halifax. Check out our social channels to see what happened on our Facebook Page and @SelectNS on Twitter.  We had a harvest celebration and we need your help to spread some local love.
 
Fall is here. Local food is here. Give it a shot.
