Buying Local at The Atherton Market

So you’re finally on board with buying local. You’ve read enough to know that produce trucked in from far flung corners of the globe is loaded with artificial preservatives, and churns out an unfortunate swath of black smoke on its way here.

Every morning, the Taub home looks on as a stream of joggers and cyclists pass by on their way along the’ Booty Loop’ in Myers Park.“ We love the tree-lined streets and convenience of being near the city,” says Kelly. “ I used to garden with my dad, right up until I left for college,” she continues, examining the leaves on a spinach plant. “I remember every summer we’d grow all the ingredients to make gazpacho.  Growing our own produce really gave me a greater appreciation for food, and I want to share those lessons ad experiences with my daughter.”
