Milk & Honey Market offers fresh, local food in U. City

For those who desire to vote with their food dollars in support of a different food system, Milk & Honey Market at 45th Street and Baltimore Avenue is a good option.

The market focuses on locavore, whose definition depends on whom you ask. For some, it means adding as much fresh and local foods to the shopping cart as possible.

Others have geographic boundaries – eating or drinking nothing that comes from beyond a 150-mile radius or, in the extreme, 50 miles.

I’ll admit my bias here. I am a strong supporter of the Buy Fresh Buy Local program and serve on the board of Fair Food. I do try to buy as much local food and products as I can, but I’m not giving up coffee, sugar or imported wine.
