BOARDMAN, Ohio (WYTV) – A group of farmers who grow produce and raise meat within 30 miles of the Valley, known as 30 Mile Meal, had a pop up shop at Catullo Prime Meats on Saturday.
The event’s purpose was to make locally grown produce and meat more available to the people of the Valley.
Lake to river co-op, local farmers and the workers at Catullo Prime Meats offered free samples. The tasting of the local food was enjoyed by visitors, and Catullo’s has become a pickup location for a lake to river co-op. That means Catullo’s will sell freshly grown produce.
“The farmers around here do a fantastic job, but then you’re also supporting local jobs within the economy. So whether it be the farmers, the butcher shops, the restaurants, these are people that employ people in the area and then allow them to invest more money into the area,” said Danny Catullo of Catullo’s Prime Meats.
Catullo’s will hold a 30 Mile Meal, a pop-up farmer’s market, on Thursdays for the next couple months.
