About six months ago, The Root Cellar opened on the corner of Third and Hill Streets in Old Louisville. Since then, Ron Smith, who owns the small shop, has provided the residents of the neighborhood with the freshest possible eggs, milk, meat, and produce. All foods sold at The Root Cellar come from farms in the surrounding area, providing a cozy, friendly place to easily buy and eat local.

Tomorrow, Saturday the 12th, some of the providers of this wonderful food will be at the store from 1:00-3:00 pm:
+The producers of JD Country milk
+Jay King from Ridge Acres farm, who will be bringing along live turkeys, chickens, and ducks
+Eric Osborne from Magnificent Mushrooms

Talking to the direct producers of what you eat brings you even closer to your food; you know exactly where it comes from and who has handled it and what went into it. This is locavore eating at its most pure and basic.

The Root Cellar is located at 1484 S. Third Street.

About Allan Day

There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
