SLIDESHOW: Foraging for food around town this fall

Music is the traditional tune Indian Killed a Woodcock performed by Drew Howard and The Weepers

Pumpkins on a stick

My friend Alisha and I embarked on a photo and video excursion to capture some images about fall food. We began our trip at the Sugar Bush Supplies Company farm on Okemos Road. Owner Rich Fogle maintains a herd of about 250 cows, milking about 100 happy animals as the pictures attest.

Then it was off to the Meridian Farmers Market, where we had the chance to see “pumpkins on a stick” (which are actually ornamental eggplants). Next was a brief trip to the Lansing City Market before we called it a day and had lunch at LaMai’s Thai Kitchen. (The Apple Yum salad is to die for.)

Doesn’t food taste even better in the fall?
