As Eat Drink Local Week approaches–our eight-day tribute to our foodshed begins Saturday, June 23rd–we wanted to introduce the sponsors that have helped us organize the event and also support local and seasonal eating year-round.
For example, this coming weekend, the first five folks to check in on Foursquare at Whole Foods in Chelsea will receive a $50+ goodie bag filled with local products. There’s a special farm to table dinner at the Whole Foods Columbus Circle next Tuesday the 26th, and a local food vendor fair on next Friday the 29th. And next Thursday at the Tribeca branch, they’re hosting a showing of the bee-centric movie Queen of the Sun.
Be sure to check out all the other events we have planned for Eat Drink Local Week, including hundreds of locally sourced prix-fixes at restaurants around the city and other deals from partnering businesses like Whole Foods.
