We periodically shop for fresh ingredients at one of the local farms or farmers markets. Recently we've joined forces with local farmers by advertising Magnolia Cafe in a wonderful new magazine that just hit the stands: Edible Austin.
With its beautiful photography and interesting articles -- well -- it just whetted our appetite for farm-fresh goodies.
So look here in coming weeks as we explore recipes for using local foods for our Saturday dinner blackboard specials.
Meanwhile, you can be inspired in a number of ways:
Read the Austin Fresh Food Newsletter with a map and hours of Austin farmer's markets.
Visit the Edible Austin website and pick up a copy at your favorite restaurants and stores.
Saturday, you're invited to a giant party celebrating the Sunset Valley Farmer's Market 10th Anniversary.
Sunday June 10th, meet and eat with the celebrated people behind lots of good local food: Edible Austin Farmers Fair fundraiser ($10 suggested donation).
