Little Bites: Celebrate Local Food, a Pop-Up Farmers Market and Dine Out for Good



Local Food & Farm Discovery Day

Celebrate local food by tasting it and meeting Central Oregon merchants and producers at Savory Spice Shop on May 19. The Central Oregon Seed Exchange will be there to tell you which local seeds do well in our climate. Visitors can also plant seeds to get their own gardens started at home. Don't forget to grab a Food & Farm Directory; it's the perfect resource for finding local products at your fingertips, available from The High Desert Food and Farm Alliance.

Pop-Up Farmers Market & Food, Plant & Seed Swap

Can't wait for the farmers markets to start? Visit the pop-up farmers market at Locavore on May 21 for CSA shares and fresh, local spring veggies. If you have homemade, homegrown or foraged foods you want to swap with others, register for their food swap that happens from 10am to noon.
