What do you find most challenging, what would you like to learn more about in regards to eating local?

In the summer. there are Farmers Markets, but where to find local produce - and what kinds - in the "off season?" Where do local farmers market in supermarkets or groceries (for example, Monestary Bakery in Oakville sells Schultz Farm eggs, but I wouldn't have known this if they hadn't been represented at the Kerr Street Organic Market, which no longer runs)?

What is your area of work/interest that you would you like to share with other locavores?

I work in settlement with newcomers to Canada and wuold like to be able to communicate to them where to find local, healthy food in this area. I am also an excellent cook - or so I've been told - who loves to experiment with new ingredients. I cook without a receipe mostly but willing to share!

Name three things you would like to do relating to eating locally grown food and community building.

Support community gardens, learn more about surrounding farms and farmers and communicate to other people about eating locally.

I have the following food items for sale or trade:

Hi! My name is Melissa and I live in Oakville. I think it's important to keep agriculture sustainble in our area, and important to support local farmers. The more I know about accessing local produce, the more I can communicate this to others.
