“When poets write about food it is usually celebratory. Food as the thing-in-itself, but also the thoughtful preparation of meals, the serving of meals, meals communally shared: a sense of the sacred in the profane.” Joyce Carol Oates quotes (American Author twice nominated for the Nobel Prize in literature, b.1938)
You know the thing I like best about internet access? It’s how there aren’t any borders. I’ve been able to travel the world, meet the most interesting people, share some pretty profound notions and picked up quite a few delicious recipes to boot.
To do justice to the many gastronomic wonders from around the world I have found, nothing quite beats the local international farmers market for selection and price. Of course the only thing better is without a doubt the local farmers kiosks that are set up on weekends all around the Atlanta metro area. Most are locally home-grown, organic produce and a variety of other wonderful treats from flowers to hand-made soaps and candles to name just a few.
Now I know that there are many who do not have the wealth of resources that I find myself privy to. Because of that, what follows are some links to some very fine businesses that offer mail delivery at very reasonable prices. Do keep in mind these are only offered as an alternative when local or growing your own are not an option. The closer to real-time we keep our purchases the fresher, more nourishing and sustainable our food is.
No doubt there is much more out there. Anything you care to share about this subject I await with enthusiasm to add to my growing list. Oh yea, borders…do you have Google earth? The only borders that exist are man-made.
“…long life-expectancy…It is a life where conviviality is a virtue, not a luxury.”
