Fall into Good Habits

Find Local Food, Retail, Tricia Phelps

We form habits, and we depend on them nearly every day because they make our busy lives easier.

Now, as summer transitions into fall, we have the perfect opportunity to develop new habits that affect our health and wellbeing in positive ways. The food we eat, and therefore our health, is strongly impacted by our food purchasing habits–What better way to develop those habits than by changing the way we shop?

Julienne Tomatoes

Christina Carson, Find Local Food, Stories, The Local Dish

Julienne Tomatoes has been serving great food featuring local ingredients since 2003, long before most downtown Petoskey restaurants were listing local producers on their menus. Owner and Chef, Julie Adams, wanted to feature as many local businesses as she could right from the start because it just made sense — supporting the people with whom you share a local community.

In northern Michigan we get through the long, cold winters by looking forward to spring.We appreciate each season because we’ve experienced its absence.To eat seasonally builds this same excitement around the food we eat because locally grown and raised products come and go at different times.
