But novice locavores can find themselves stumped by basic questions. Whata€™s the best way to shop at a farmersa€™ market? Is it possible to eat locally all year long? And just what does one do with braising greens, anyway? Enter The Locavore Way by Amy Cotler. This friendly guide to eating locally gives readers all the information they need to buy, cook, and eat close to home. Cotler covers all the basics a€” why eat locally, where to find local foods, how to eat locally on a budget, what questions to ask at the farmersa€™ market, and even how to grow onea€™s own food.
