A Legend in Their Own Lunchtime

It has been some time since I have updated this blog. While I have been busy managing the Rittenhouse Farmers' Market and getting the Far Northeast's first Farmers' Market off the ground, there really is no excuse. I'm just a lazy locavore.

Last year Chef Andy Bates visited Philadelphia from across the pond and highlighted Philadelphia's local street food scene for an episode of his Food Network UK series - Andy Bates American Street Feasts. This episode, "Philadelphia - A Legend in Their Own Lunchtime", features many of our favorite local farmers and vendors including: Lucky Old Souls, Zea May's Kitchen, Weavers Way Farms and Sorbello Girls (at the Mt. Airy Village Farmers' Market) and even yours truly makes an appearance, albeit a brief one (16:15 if you are interested). Up until now, you could only view this in the UK so we called and got a DVD sent over.

Enjoy and tell us if you spot any of your friends!
