Foodstalk, a multi-platform event, provides a way for people to come together and talk about locally grown food in NYC. Foodstalk functions as a resource online, to help people find locally grown food, artisanal food makers and restaurants that use local ingredients. Foodstalk aims to promote the business of local food makers through small events where they can share their stories and put a face to the farmers behind the food. Foodstalk hopes to engage people’s interest in knowing about the food they eat, the land from which it comes and the people that grow it through campaigns which live on the streets and the internet.
