We’re thrilled to announce our fourth annual Eat Drink Local week, an eight-day locavore love fest for our foodshed celebrated by Edibles around the tri-state area. For one week, starting June 22nd, we urge you to show some love for our local food system by dining out, cooking in and enjoying local, seasonal ingredients.
Usually we’re advocates of device-free dining. But that was before the #eatdrinklocal Twitter stream started buzzing with pictures, recipes and farmstand tips on how our readers are eating, shopping and dining during Eat Drink Local.
Eat Drink Local Week has finally arrived and it’s going to be a hot one. So it’s your duty, really, to enjoy a bottle of chilled rose–one of our featured local ingredients of the week.

Reserve your table now for Eat Drink Local Week at one of our partner restaurants and see what creations local chefs come up with for our 8 featured local ingredients: spinach, eggs, goat (milk, cheese, yogurt, meat, etc.), radishes, rose wines, porgy, fava beans, and hops. The possibilities are endless, but tables are not. Book yours in Manhattan, Brooklyn or the East End now.
Edible Brooklyn has always fostered feasting on our foodshed, but the philosophy leaps off the page during our annual eat Drink Local Week.
As we kick off Eat Drink Local Week with our second annual Meet Your Maker, June 20th, take a step behind the scenes with a tour of one of four awesome local Brooklyn businesses: Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn Winery, NY Distilling Co. and Toby’s Estate Coffee–samples included! Then join us back at Brooklyn Brewery for beers, a GIANT SUB from the Brooklyn Kitchen and snacks from Acme Smoked Fish.
Eat Drink Local Week 2o12 is made possible with help from these businesses, each of which does its part to support local foodsheds.
