OmNomCT Named Local Food Champions by Fresh Nation

9 Oct

Fresh Nation is a new service, based out of Stamford, that pools together local resources to give you a central place to find the best and freshest local food.  Just type in your zip code and you’ll see an amazing list of places to help you keep it local!  And, just a few months ago, they began delivering food from farms, markets and artisan producers right to your door throughout Fairfield County and now parts of Westchester.

Because being local and keeping things in the community matters so much to Fresh Nation, they began a campaign to celebrate Local Food Champions.  These are people who work hard at bringing awareness to good food in our region and who constantly emphasize the idea of keeping things local within our own communities.  We have believed in this for a long time and hopefully you’ve noticed that we often focus on food, producers, and restaurants that highlight the amazing produce, meats, and products that are made here in Fairfield County and Connecticut.  And, to be honest, we’re honored that Fresh Nation would not only recognize this, but also put us up on their list of Local Food Champions that include the CEO and founder of Fresh Nation, Tony Lee, Analiese Paik of Fairfield Green Food Guide, Alicia Ghio of Local Food Rocks and The Natural Princess, and Lisa Corrado of Lisa Corrado Nutrition.

To help keep the community close together, you’ll also be able to visit the Local Food Champions blog feed to keep up to date with what’s going on in Fairfield County and Connecticut.  We’ll all keep you updated on how you can continue to keep it local.

If you’d like to learn more about Fresh Nation, check them out by visiting their site, and if you’d like to learn about their delivery options to Fairfield County and some Westchester County towns, check it out here.

Thanks again Fresh Nation.  We’re blushing.

      Hmm, we had no idea that the two were related at all. The Local Food Champions was something of an honor that we got and other writers and people got for their work in highlighting the importance of eating local food. We didn’t get anything in return for it, it was just a nice honor. As for Digital Surgeons, did you see our review of the 4b Festival? https://omnomct.wordpress.com/2014/03/24/4b-or-not-4b-that-is-what-we-question-4b-festival-new-haven/ We honestly told about what we saw at the festival. Sometimes we take the unpopular stance in our posts, but that’s usually because everybody else is afraid to take that stance. Just wondering how this makes us less trustworthy to you, could you explain?
