Best of the Food Web: Local Harvest

By Kelli Swensen, Dietetics Student, Sargent College

Every Wednesday this semester we will be posting about a new blog or cooking website that we love! The internet is filled with food websites, and our goal is to arm you with the “Best of the Food Web”!

Although not heavy in recipes, Local Harvest is a go-to site for finding organic and local foods close to where you are. The homepage features an interactive map that allows you to search for online stores that deliver to your area, nearby farms, CSA pick-ups, Farmers’ Markets, and grocery stores, wholesalers, meat processors, and restaurants that feature local and/or organic products. When I typed in Boston’s zip code and searched for restaurants, the website listed Oleana in Cambridge and The Fireplace in Brookline as two restaurants known for using sustainable ingredients. Under each restaurant is a short description of the restaurant including the head chef’s food philosophy. Local Harvest also has an online store that you can order from. They supply a huge variety of sustainable and fair-trade ingredients at reasonable prices. Missing recipe blogs? Local Harvest has a Blog Tab that takes you to a page that lists blogs whose authors are Local Harvest members. If you’ve been looking for ways to support sustainable foods, Local Harvest should be among your first stops.
