Book Review: Food Lovers' Guide to New Jersey
There's a list of farmers markets in the region and farms & farm stands. There's also a list of food happenings like the Vineland Dandelion Festival that occurred a month ago or some of the many strawberry, blueberry and peach festivals that celebrate some of our state's finest produce. Chapters on food made here, specialty stores & markets, places to learn to cook, places to learn about wine, brewpubs & microbreweries, and the wine trail round out the SJ section.
This is the second edition of the book published in 2008, and as will happen with any book about local businesses a few of the places will inevitably be gone - like Olga's Diner in the Landmark Eateries section.
Not every item in the book has to do with food produced locally, but there is quite a bit here for locavores to eat up. It's going to be a great source of information as I work on adding content to this blog. It will also be a great resource for planning weekend food themed excursions.
The other sections in this book are North Jersey, Central Jersey and the Jersey Shore.
