Retailers will be highlighted in the third installment of “Farm to Fork: The Oklahoma Food Chain,” a series of community dialogues on local foods sponsored by the Norman Sustainability Network and the Xenia Institute.
As the local foods movement has sprouted nationwide, Oklahoma has seen increasing numbers of retailers selling locally produced food.
With exciting enterprises like Native Roots Market, Urban Agrarian, increasing numbers of farmers markets and local restaurants like Ludivine, local food is available in more venues and delivered to the customer in more innovative and creative ways than ever before.
The upcoming forum will be on Thursday, March 10th, 6:30–8:30 p.m, at the First Presbyterian Church in Norman, 555 S. University Blvd. Like the previous forums, it will include a panel discussion featuring individuals closely involved in the Oklahoma local food industry including Matt Runkle of Native Roots Market and Chris Le of Coriander Cafe. This will be followed by a breakout session, where attendees select the “resident expert” they want to speak with in more depth.
The first events took place in the fall with local producers representing a variety of agriculture types and distributors who bring the products to market.
To RSVP, text or call (405) 396-6470 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. An RSVP is appreciated but not required to attend.
