Eating local during winter in Pittsburgh

Even though winter is officially here and Pittsburgh is covered with snow, there are plenty of options for eating local. Many farmers in the region have products available all year long. Here are some resources for finding locally grown food in the city during the winter months:
  • Green Circle Farm has a weekly delivery all winter to Carnegie, Oakland, Squirrel Hill, Point Breeze, Churchill, Highland Park, Fox Chapel, the North Side, and Sewickley. Contact Erika on the website and she'll send you a weekly email of the products she has available. 
  • Penn Corner's Farm Alliance has a biweekly delivery year-round to Squirrel Hill, Mt. Lebanon, Lawrenceville or the North Side. You can use their website to shop online for groceries, and they'll deliver your order to your selected location.
  • The East End Food Coop in Point Breeze/Homewood sells products from local farmers at the store every day all year.
The Pittsburgh Public Market also hosts a number of famers all year.  Check out their vendor schedule so you don't miss your favorite farmer:

  1. You should get a facebook page! I'd really like to follow you, but I don't really do the pintrest or twitter thing. Instagram is nice though. What do you think about local canned or frozen in the winter?
