Food’s story at Maywood fair

What’s your food’s story? Join Linda Conroy of Moonwise Herbs as she presents “A Story on Every Plate” at Maywood’s Local Food for Global Thought event Saturday, Feb. 22. Conroy will trace the store of the foods on several different plates to identify and connect with the experiences of growing or acquiring foods. Her presentation beings at 10:30 a.m.

Conroy’s presentation is a feature of this year’s local food event which is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is free; donations at the door are appreciated to defray event costs.

Over 25 local food producers, farms, and local food resources will have tables at the event. Several local caterers and restaurants will be selling food at the event. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms will provide information about their subscription programs for the upcoming growing season. Many local farms and producers of eggs, meat, poultry, honey, herbs, bakery, fruit, and vegetables will have items available to sample or purchase. A children’s seed planting activity will be available throughout the day.

Maywood held its first local food fair in 2008. This year’s event includes many returning vendors and several first-time vendors including Fleck’s Curbside Grill, one of the area’s food trucks. To encourage a focus on local food, all food producers are from within 50 miles of Sheboygan. Additionally, participating restaurants and caterers make use of local food suppliers.

An article in the Feb. 11 Review on the Plymouth Farmers Market incorrectly reported that Carrie Caselton Lowe is with the Sheboygan County Interfaith Coalition. She is a farmer for the Glacial Hills Community Farm and working for the downtown farmer’s market initiative.
