Enjoy home cooked local meals Wednesday nights at Lanesboro Local

Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

Lanesboro, Minn., – Don’t go home without a good healthy meal next Wednesday night – or any Wednesday night in the foreseeable future. Angie Taylor has stepped in as interim executive director at Lanesboro Local Marketplace with plans to cook for the community and serve a free-will-donation meal every Wednesday evening at the new Lanesboro Local Marketplace location at Parkway Avenue and Coffee Street. The first Wednesday meal will be November 13, serving from 5:30 until the Marketplace closes at 7, or until the food runs out, whichever occurs first.

Why the emphasis on local food? “I want local residents to know that there’s lots of really good, healthy food right here in our area. And I want them to know that Lanesboro Local Marketplace is a pioneer at connecting area growers and eaters,” says Taylor, co-owner (with husband Scott) of Pedal Pushers Café, which has earned a reputation over recent years for sourcing local, fresh, high quality ingredients for offerings on the menu.

As an expression of Lanesboro Local’s commitment to the local food movement, Lanesboro Local invites the community to come together on Wednesday evenings to break bread, to get menu ideas and recipes, and to value the local food supply. Lanesboro Local board member Loni Kemp is pleased with Taylor’s enthusiasm, experience and plan for Wednesday night meals. “It’s what Lanesboro Local has always meant to be – a source of good food and good connection between neighbors.”

Anyone can volunteer to help. When Lanesboro Local asked for volunteers to help make the dinner series happen, there was an immediate “Yes!” response. The menu will not be fancy, but will be very special. Each meal will model economical ways to eat. Ingredients will include items in stock at the Marketplace. And the supply and selection of foods available at Lanesboro Local will be increasing dramatically week-by-week. Thanks to Taylor’s deep experience serving locally sourced foods, Lanesboro Local will have greater access to the supply lines that deliver quality local foods.

Beginning, with produce, the Marketplaces plans to transition to a much more food-based inventory. Winter root vegetables and other items that keep will be easy additions. Once the Marketplace has a handle on vegetables and fruits, it will venture further into dairy items. Plans are fluid right now, as the Lanesboro Local board weighs budget and space con .....
