Is vowing to eat only food produced within a 100-mile radius possible? In today’s City Paper[1] we find out you can get by just fine thank you, well unless you’re a coffee fiend.

We’re enjoying the foods, some for the first time. There’s the raw milk, with actual cream rising to the top of the glass bottle. (It’s almost embarrassing that this is a novelty.) Technicolor rainbow chard. Tiny sugarplums bursting with juice. Unbelievably sweet ears of Mirai corn. Candy onions you could practically eat raw. It’s a whole new palette of flavors.
