The Green City Market Localvore Challenge: Can You Do It?

By Chuck Sudo in Food on Sep 9, 2008 4:21PM


Tomorrow is the start of the annual Green City Market Localvore Challenge, where market regulars who partake in the challenge must commit to eating only locally produced food.

Last year, former Chicagoist contributor Lisa Shames took the challenge and documented each day (Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4 and the wrap-up). But Lisa only had to do it for one week. This year's challenge is expanded to two weeks, through September 24.

We're also taking the challenge; last year we screwed the pooch eating a burger at Skylark on the first day. We'll be filing periodic updates during the challenge to keep you updated on our status. We'd also like to hear from other folks taking part in the localvore challenge with the intent of keeping a running reader update, as well. Just e-mail us if you're interested.
