See who won Farmington's first local food 'Iron Chef' cook-off Wochit


FARMINGTON — Attendees at the Northwest New Mexico Local Food Summit celebrated the progress Local Foods, Local Places initiatives have made in San Juan County, and also planned for the future.

A year ago, Farmington was selected to participate in a federal initiative known as Local Foods, Local Places. 

The food summit began at 3 p.m. Aug. 8 at the Farmington Civic Center and included vendors, presentations, live music and a food fair.

The event continues Aug. 9 starting at 8 a.m. Community members will have a chance to provide input on plans. In the afternoon, participants will tour four San Juan County farms, including Wines of the San Juan.

The farm tours are $25 and transportation will be provided.

Community members learned about the Local Foods, Local Places initiative during a food summit on Aug. 8 in Farmington.
