Annual Local Food Conference in Pittsburgh
Friday, March 21 and Saturday, March 22, 2014
“Very interesting, especially the number of small co-op farms around the area. We try to eat a diet filled with a variety of healthy and tasteful foods and I think purchasing fruit/vegs from local producers will make our selections easier.”
