Kudos to Fair Farms Maryland for this great video that features some of my favorite Maryland farmers, Jack and Beckie Gurley of Calvert’s Gift Farm. Not only are they mentors to many of the farmers populating farmers markets today, but they started Chesapeake Farm to Table, a smart, efficient and transparent way to connect Baltimore-area farmers like themselves with Baltimore chefs to put more local produce, dairy, meats and seafood on restaurant tables.

I've been involved in local food in the Chesapeake region for 15 years, first and foremost as a shopper, eater and home cook. I'm also the former publisher of Edible Chesapeake magazine, I served as deputy director for Future Harvest–Chesapeake Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture, and have been on the boards of several local urban farming and farmers market organizations. I'm excited to an inaugural member of the Steering Team for the Chesapeake Foodshed Network, a regional food system initiative working to catalyze connections and collaborations that build a sustainable, resilient, inclusive, and equitable regional food system in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. And, of course, I'm thrilled to see my first book, "The Chesapeake Table: Your Guide to Eating Local" in print in September 2018! View all posts by Renee Brooks Catacalos
