  1. I think it’s a little hard to test them right now (at least where I am) since farmers markets and fresh local produce don’t really hit their stride for another month or two. It looks like Food Community changed its name to Nommunity though, and seems to be having some issues right now. Locavore seems to be working fine and has some good recipes – though it is highlighting the seasonal ingredient of Snow… 🙂

    Look forward to seeing if anyone else has tested these or has any other local food app recommendations!
