This is what I sent in...

It's the abundance of fresh food! Local farmers grow: apples, apricots, artichokes, arugula, asparagus, beans, beets, berries, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, chard, cherries, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, figs, garlic, grapes, hazelnuts, herbs, kale, kohlrabi, leeks, lettuce, onions, parsnips, peaches, pears, peas, peppers, plums, potatoes, prunes, pumpkins, radishes, rhubarb, rutabagas, spinach, tomatoes, turnips, squash, walnuts, and zucchini.

Add to that the beef, lamb, pork, poultry, and eggs raised on our local farms and ranches, wild salmon, steelhead, deer and elk in our rivers and forests, sweeten it all with a dash of local honey and you have a food-lover's paradise.
