The way we eat has changed more in the last 50 years than in the previous 10,000.” These opening remarks of Food, Inc., a 2008 documentary that followed foods as they made their way from the farms to the grocery stores, got marketing guru and mother Miriam Nasuti thinking about Fredericktonians and their food. Nasuti’s thoughts translated into action: Farm-to-Fork Frederick, a City of Frederick and Frederick County event taking place from Aug. 23 to Sept. 2. It’s all about connecting area restaurants with farmers under the goal of providing fresh, nutrient-rich and locally sourced food to consumers, and bringing farmers and restaurants together to foster close collaborations and new business relationships. And those relationships involve the consumers as well.
