Budget-Saver: Use Locally-Grown Foods in Your Menu….But What Are They?

You see the advice everywhere in articles and books on how to save money on your wedding: use locally-grown, in-season foods in your wedding menu. Importing costs extra money, after all. But how do you find out what these foods are?

As I’m researching my newest book, I came across these fabulous resources for you! Check out the following to find lists of the local foods in your region, searchable by season:

LocalHarvest.org
and
NRDC.org, which is organized so beautifully! You just enter your state and the season, broken down by ‘early October’ and ‘late October’ and such, to really zero in on what’s in-season…as well as what’s in-season in states near you. A great resource that’s going to help you work so much better with your caterers!
