Buy Local

Jonathan Green published a book to make buying local easy and affordable. It's called the Local Living Guide. We talked to him at the Farmers' Market located at High Rock Park in Saratoga. In the book you receive discounts at the farmers' market, restaurants, entertainment, and other products and services from locally-owned businesses.
I went to Beverly's in downtown Saratoga the day after I bought the book and got a free breakfast with the purchase of one. I'm on a workingman's diet so I ate two breakfasts and didn't ask Justin or Adam if they wanted any.

The Farmers' Market location and schedule is:
Wednesday, 3:00pm-6:00pm
Saturday, 9:00am-1:00pm
High Rock Ave.

Winter Market: November - April
Saturday, 9:00am-1:00pm
Division Street Elementary School


  1. Love the guide - used it last night at Hearth and Harvest. Shop and eat local!

  2. I can't wait to get my hands on this. I'm hoping The Book House or another local bookshop has a copy!
