As Milwaukeeans we tend to suffer a bit of an inferiority complex. We're not hip and trendy like the east coast or the west coast, and we are overshadowed by the big city on the lake just a few miles south of us. It's hard to live in Chicago's shadow. And, when people think of a hip and trendy midwestern city, Minneapolis comes to mind before Milwaukee.
So, we're pretty proud of our city and some things happening locally. Of course we're known for beer....and for bratwurst. But there is a quieter food movement that is known nationally called Growing Power. And it is headquartered here. In Milwaukee.
If you have found your way to this blog I'm assuming you have some interest in food. Maybe even an interest in healthy food. And locally grown food. So, check on the link above to see what is happening here. Just maybe we are a bit hip and trendy.
