Santa Fe, New Mexico (PRWEB) April 17, 2012
Joe’s Dining, a SantaFe.com and Hutton Broadcasting Featured Business, and one of Santa Fe’s premiere local restaurants for farm fresh New Mexico foods, is proud to announce the return of the Meet Your Farmer lunch experience. Starting sometime after 1:30 p.m. Saturday April 21, and every Saturday thereafter through to the end of the growing season, you can have lunch with a local farmer. This is a unique opportunity to ask questions about farming, enjoy a local meal, and meet the farmers who grow New Mexico foods. Owner/Chef Roland Richter, seen every Saturday at the Farmers Market, invites vendors from the Market to relax over an after Market lunch every Saturday at the company’s restaurant location (at 50% off everything), to meet the community that supports their hard work.
In 2011, Joe’s Dining proudly spent over $80,000 on locally-grown New Mexico farm products, including meat, poultry, eggs, organic flour, dairy products, fresh produce and locally-made value-added products like jams and blue-corn pancake mix.
As the “eat local” and “know your farmer, know your food” movements grow around the state, Joe’s Dining is proud to be a leader in purchasing local New Mexico foods for their menu. This year Joe’s plans to spend well over $90,000 in local products while adding more products all the time as they become available in sufficient quantities. Recently they added locally roasted organic fair trade coffee and milk to their buying. Joe’s Dining has been a participant in the Farm to Restaurant and in 2008 was awarded The Farm to Restaurant Dedication Award for their commitment by the project.
