Grow Local!

This weekend I attended the Ohio Valley Greenmarket at one of Hamilton County’s local parks, Glenwood Gardens. The Greenmarket was a collaboration between the Park District and Edible Ohio Valley magazine. It featured local vendors, talks on native gardening, growing organic, conservation and more. You can read more about Edible Ohio Valley magazine and the event here.

The sky was cloudy, the air was hot, but the turnout was great! My mom came with me, and we had a nice time strolling past the booths, talking to some of the vendors, sampling some delicious treats and learning more about sustainable efforts around town.

I came away with a few spoils of the day: some delicious herb mixes from The Spice and Tea Exchange. One is the “Tuscany Blend” and the other is the  “Coastal Blend” (heard it’s great on seafood!). I also picked up some fresh-baked sweets and savories from a local bakery, including a fresh baguette loaf, a chocolate chip croissant, and two blueberry scones. Yum!

Hope you all had a fun-filled weekend! Did you partake in any locally-focused activities?
