Behold, Lady Edison Country Ham
One of the things I love most about the Good Food Mercantile is that it brings producers from all over the country to one central locale. Every state is represented by at least one producer, each of whom is making inspired, conscientious food with a purpose. Canned geoduck from Alaska. Indigenous fruit pastes from Hawaii. Bean-to-bar chocolates from Arkansas. You’ll find it all here, and that says nothing of the total tonnage of exciting products coming out of Brooklyn and California every day.
Whether innovating with never-before-tasted flavor combinations, or painstakingly preserving authentic production methods, Good Food crafters prove that good food can come from anywhere. And it so happens that my favorite bite at the most recent Mercantile came from North Carolina.
