Gorman Heritage Farm, along with Slow Food Cincinnati, celebrates spring with Savor the Season, featuring some of the area’s top chefs demonstrating delicious dishes using local ingredients. Gorman’s program director, Jamie Stoneham, joins our Frank Johnson with details on this day of food, nature, and local farmers.

From locally-produced fruits, vegetables and grass-fed beef to candles and soap crafted by regional artisans, Friendly Market in Florence, KY has a wide variety of items to satiate the palate of any locavore.

Jack Berberich, owner of Friendly Market, is a Kentucky native and maintains strong connections with the local agriculture of the commonwealth. Berberich and the other merchants at the market work diligently to make sure that the very best Kentucky has to offer is available in one easy-to-find location.

The idea of beer & sausages is not new to Cincinnati, but what is new and cool is The Growler Stop, located next to Wags Park on Church Street in the heart of Newtown.

Though just a few weeks old, The Growler Stop has made connections with many of the great local beer makers in town, including Rhinegeist, Blank Slate, MadTree, 50 West, Rivertownand Mt. Carmel Brewery.
