Special Treat

The Salty Caramel ice cream at the Green Dog Café.  Yum!  Pair with their Dark Chocolate – even better!

Locavore’s Tip:

Mr. Schneider & his sweet corn at the Lunken Farmer’s Market.  Eighty four years young and going strong.  His sweet corn straight off the farm is to die for.  He’s pretty sweet, too.
