Availability for August 6

I’m running a bit behind tonight, so please forgive my not having a recipe, photos, and the other niceties of my emails of late.

I would like to thank everyone who contacted your Representative this week regarding the food safety bill. The first vote Wednesday did fail, but a revised bill did get passed late Thursday. The revisions made it a bit more palatable (in that it doesn’t immediately make what we’re doing illegal), but it’s not as good as it ought to be. The Senate is taking up their version, and then the differences between the two will be hammered out in conference committee. So, there’s still plenty of time to better the bill. Or, as may happen, make it worse.

Without further delay, here’s our availability this week. Thanks for all the support you give Athens Locally Grown, our growers, and locally grown food! We’ll see you on Thursday from 4:30 to 8pm at the old state farmers market on Broad Street.
