Local Foods Connection, with the help of New Pioneer Co-op and Edible Iowa River Valley Magazine, hosted the annual Iowa City Community Supported Agriculture fair this past weekend. The event was attended by dozens of people from the Iowa City area, Cedar Rapids, and even Davenport.
Visitors had a chance to meet farmers from eight different farms serving Johnson County and the surrounding area. Farmers had on display brochures and photographs, and spoke one-on-one with visitors about their life, work and the goods they have for sale. One farmers was even selling eggs from her organically-raised chickens.
A reporter from the on-line journal, The Iowa Independent, attended the fair, and posted videos and story about the event on their website. Learn more about the fair at:
