Hiller’s Michigan Foods Booklet
Hiller’s Market on Washtenaw put together a useful booklet of food producers from our state for its ongoing “Buy Michigan” promotion. You can download the pdf here: Foods Made in Michigan.
Speaking of local foods, today’s New York Times has an interesting story about stretching the definition of what’s meant by eating local, “When Local Makes It Big,” by Kim Severson. Frito-Lay is one of the companies Severson writes about for its use of geographically-targeted marketing. It may fill in some gaps for people who’ve wondered about, as I did recently on the way to Metro Airport, a billboard alongside I-94 touting Lays potato chips’ Michigan roots.
