Someone once said,
You can't buy happiness, but you can buy local and that's kind of the same thing.
That's why on Monday, June 1, at 7 p.m., we invite you to the library for Eat Local: CSAs, Farmers Markets and You, in Room A.
You don't need bib-overalls, but you do need a desire to learn about delicious local eats. So grab your thinking sun cap while you listen to Adam Price, from the Oklahoma Food Coop, and local farmers talk about Farmer Market options available to Oklahomans.
Ages 18 and up are invited. But please know, space for the program is limited, so registration is required in advance.
