Food Environmental Atlas

For the last few days I've been playing with a neat online tool one of my food blogger friends (Sophie of Late Bloomers Farm) wrote about called the Food Environmental Atlas. Put out by the USDA, the atlas details things like the availability of restaurants and grocery stores, health, local foods, foods eaten at home, and more. You can look at the entire US or get specific all the way down to the county level.

The above map is a look at the number of farmers markets in Connecticut. The darker color indicates a higher amount. I was surprised to see my county, Fairfield County, was among those with the most farmers markets.

How does your area stack up? Any surprises?
