An examination of Buy Local, Eat Local in Charlottesville

This week on WNRN’s Sunday Morning Wake-Up Call the conversation is all about the ‘Buy Local, Eat Local’ food scene. Area restaurateurs Kate Collier (Feast!) and Will Richey (Revolutionary Soup) join Melissa Harris and Jennifer Seidel from the new Flavor magazine along with host Rick Moore to discuss independent farms and sustainable agriculture. How do current Virginia laws help the large, industrial food system while hurting area farmers? How is it financially viable for a small restaurant to use better tasting but more expensive foods? Exactly what is a super-model vegetable and why are they to be shunned? What can you do to help this concept continue its growth?
