11-23-11: How Much of Your Thanksgiving Meal is from Maryland?

November 23, 2011 at 7:55 am Leave a comment

A group called 1000 Friends of MD has just released a study which estimates that only about 48% of the food on Maryland tables tomorrow will come from Maryland.  For all of our food at Thanksgiving to come from local farms, we would need to plant about 13,000 more acres of potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, and apples.  And we’d have to raise a lot more turkeys, probably 2 million more.    Kelly Carneal, Director of Rural Lands for 1000 Friends of Maryland, talks about it with Tom Hall.

Still looking for a farmer’s market before the big day?  Here’s a link to a list of them around the state.

And for your local post-Thanksgiving shopping, you may want to head out for Small Business Saturday.
