The Local Food Report
This is an archive of The Local Food Report. It was created in December 2012 and is no longer being updated. Enjoy exploring here. For current postings, please visit capeandislands.org.
An avid locavore, Elspeth lives in Wellfleet and writes a blog about food. Elspeth is constantly exploring the Cape, Islands, and South Coast and all our farmer's markets to find out what's good, what's growing and what to do with it. The program airs Thursdays at 8:30 on Morning Edition and 5:45pm on All Things Considered, as well as Saturday mornings at 9:30.

Chilmark Bakery Snacks
This week, Elspeth brings us the first of three episodes on a Martha’s Vineyard program called Island Grown Schools. The idea is to get more local foods into school yards and lunchboxes and cafeterias. This week, Elspeth visits Chilmark Elementary school during snacktime.
