Madison
, WI – From pizza with the kids to an exquisite meal celebrating a special occasion, diners will be treated this fall to three days of local foods during REAP Food Group’s Local Harvest: A Taste of the Town, October 12th-14th.  Local Harvest is a seasonal celebration of local foods and chefs who turn local ingredients into great meals.  Twelve participating restaurants will create unique, flavorful specialties to showcase how they incorporate local foods into a delicious menu.

A seasonal event, Local Harvest is a perfect opportunity to try out many of your neighborhood restaurants that purchase from local farmers.  New to the event this year Bloom Bake Shop will feature local ingredients in their scrumptious cupcakes and La Fortuna will be serving incredible pizzas made in their mobile wood fired oven.  Classical favorites include Lombardino’s, Sardine, Harvest and Greenbush Bar all featuring local specialties of their own.  A few near-eastside favorites this year include Alchemy Café, Bunky’s Café, Monty’s Blue Plate Diner and The Weary Traveler.  With a five-course dinner at the Dayton Street Grille, you will taste the best of many featured farms.  The new duo on the square of L’Etoile and Graze will top off the list of participants.

Local Harvest is not just an opportunity to savor Southern Wisconsin’s seasonal bounty; diners are contributing to building a more sustainable food system by supporting local establishments that buy locally.  Participating restaurants donate a portion of the proceeds to REAP Food Group’s Buy Fresh Buy Local program (BFBL).  BFBL Southern Wisconsin is a program of REAP (Research, Education, Action and Policy) Food Group, a Madison based nonprofit organization that is promoting a more healthful, just, and both environmentally and economically sustainable food system.
