We will also be featuring lots of information on local food, eating locally and comparing industrial vs local food systems. Representatives from the Uptown and Downtown Farmers’ Markets in Hoboken will be there to talk about the different markets as well as local food. Of course, we’ll also have some samples of local food including homemade pumpkin cookies and local apple cider!
