Yes, it’s possible this may be your summer of delight! With over 170 farm markets in the state of Virginia, and an almost endless supply of local fresh foods, it will not be hard to purchase Virginia produce, poultry, dairy, or seafood. Of course, there are the local condiments, sauces, and nuts that help make the state an easy stop for a locavore. Now, how about the preparation?
You could be one of two statewide winners in the Virginia Grown Eat Local Recipe Contest. If you’ve wondered what to do with all the products from your CSA, this is a perfect opportunity to experiment. Just create a recipe listing all your ingredients and take a photo of your creation. You can even have someone take your photo with the prized recipe. However you approach it, here is a chance to have your recipe drawn in the random drawing. All submissions are due by August 15. The drawing will be held no later than August 28. Check out the Virginia Grown website for additional information including some recipes to get your juices going.
