Good Food Awards 2013 Finalists Announced

While other awards recognize food that tastes good or food that is good for the planet, the Good Food Awards honor people who make food that is good in all senses of the word: delicious, respectful of the environment, and connected to communities and cultural traditions. This year’s finalists represented us New Yorkers well, with 17 of those finalists hailing from our great state.

Have You Bought Your Thanksgiving Turkey Yet? Here’s Where to Do It

Dig this helpful guide from the folks at GrowNYC, the non-profit group behind city Greenmarkets. It’s a list of which of their farmers citywide are selling turkeys, plus how to order them and where you can pick them up. And if it’s heritage breeds and pastured poultry you’re after, don’t forget your mail-order friends at Heritage Foods USA, whose office is based in Williamsburg. There’s also the Meat Hook (Williamsburg), Marlow & Daughters (Southside), and Fleischer’s Grass-Fed and Organic Meats (Park Slope), too.
