Local Food Paper Love

One of my very favorite things about the neighborhood that Nole and I share is Eastern Market, a large fresh food market just a short stroll away from my house.  The market attracts neighborhood folks like us all week long and a throng of tourists and other DC shoppers on the weekends.  I love that I can pop in and choose from the best meat and seasonal produce this region has to offer, sold by folks I feel great about supporting.  Three cheers for local food!

I’ve almost purchased this gorgeous letterpress poster from Starshaped Press dozens of times.  It’s one of those “don’t have a wall for it, but really want it anyway” pieces for me, perfectly capturing why I love where I live.

Here’s a food-related print that I wasn’t able to  resist.  My North Carolina pork-loving self had to have this Hatch Show print from California-based 4505 Meats.  Oink oink!

I adore everything about this Seattle Eats print from Drywell Art, so much so that I wish they made prints for other cities!

Speaking of other cities, if I lived in Knoxville, TN, I’d snap up these Yee Haw Industries Farmers Market prints in a heartbeat.  How gorgeous would a selection of the printed vegetables be lining a kitchen wall?

For those of us without connections to Knoxville, Yee Haw Industries produce notecards are the perfect dose of fruit and vegetable letterpress.  They perfectly capture the notion of food as art, don’t you think?

  4. heya! Thanks so much for the love for the Seattle Eats Local poster! Just wanted to let you know that I actually *do* make posters for other cities — right now SF, Portland, Brooklyn, and LA. Next up is Chicago, and my friends in DC have been clamoring for one as well. 😉
