Ozark Slow Food: Celebrating good, clean, and fair food!

I am biased, but I do believe Northwest Arkansas is one of the friendliest places to live. My husband confirms that I’m not too biased. He moved here from Florida, Broward County. He visited Arkansas with all the same stereotypes in mind. Oh, look shoes and teeth!  But he discovered the natural beauty and friendliness (and our not so foreign enjoyment of shoes and teeth).

The spring season brings the opening of farmers markets where open friendly folks abound.

Ozark Slow Food is great resource for Farmer’s Markets places and times and CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) What is a CSA?  “It’s a way to get primo produce while insuring your local farmer customers and capital. To join a CSA you generally pay an annual fee before the season begins to reserve your share. This helps your farmer plan their production and provides cash to get the crop planted. If a farmer both provides a CSA and produce at a farmers’ market, CSA subscribers get first dibs! CSA are usually the best deal for farmers and customers.”

Ozark Slow Food is about promoting sustainable farmer and consumer community and focusing on healthy foods. “Read more about the mission and activities of Slow Food International and Slow Food USA, and consider becoming a member!”

A wonderful site for those in NWA who want to know more about not only farmer’s markets but restaurants and other ways to support local farmers and healthy food!
