The Community Media Center will be focusing on local food this fall -- growing, buying and cooking food from local farmers and farmers' markets.
Serving Carroll is the name of a new television program coming to Channel 19 this fall. The goal of the program is to encourage residents to grow local, buy local and give local.
Each 30-minute episode follows an area chef as he or she visits with vendors and explores the local foods available at Carroll County farmers' markets. Then viewers can watch the chef turn those ingredients into a delicious meal.
The CMC will be at the Taneytown Farmers Market this Saturday taping a segment of the show. Local chef Brooke Hagerty of Gunner's Grille in Taneytown will be talking to vendors, buying food and cooking on site at the market.
Throughout the show, viewers will also learn about ways they can serve their local community by supporting charitable programs in our area.
Carroll County's designated Buy Local Week is scheduled for Aug. 6 through Aug. 13. The statewide Buy Local Challenge is a pledge to eat a minimum of one item from a local farm or winery every day during the designated week.
