They say a picture's worth a thousand words.  These pictures are worth even more--they tell the story of celebrating one's heritage, of merchants and residents who've dedicated their lives to making this neighborhood a better place, of local artists creating a gallery out of an old warehouse, and they even tell the story of a child's first haircut at a wonderful, locally owned salon. Enough for a novel, I'd say. 
Check out the pictures below, get a yummy local recipe and be sure to check out the great events coming up!

 Local Summer Recipe! 

 It's summertime...and the eating is easy, cause it's LOCAL!


Want to make a delicious, healthy meal but don't have much time?  


Local Egleston resident Hannah Thomas can help!  She found all the ingredients for this meal in her garden and at local stores! 


Potato Salad


You will need:  
5-10 potatoes (from a local store)
a handful of fresh chives (from your garden or store)
mustard (from a local store)
sour cream (from Plaza Meat Market)
salt and pepper to taste
Cut the potatoes into 3-4 inch pieces and boil or steam them until cooked. Drain, then salt and pepper them and give them a shake in the pot to get the edges of the potatoes a little fluffy. 
Let them cool to room temperature. Add in a tablespoon of dijon mustard or whole grain mustard and a cup of sour cream to the potatoes. add the chives chopped. 
Mix well and serve chilled. 
I'm getting hungry already!
