Eat Local Challenge

Are any of you Boston 'hounds participating in the Eat Local Challenge for September?

I know plenty of places to find my produce around town, but I'm still looking for better sources for local kitchen staples, pasta, chicken, pork, and dairy, to name a few. What farms and brands are on everyone's foodshed list? I know there must be good places in the South End and North End, but I don't know where they are.

Also, what restaurants are super-dedicated to sourcing local ingredients? You're allowed to make your own rules, and I think I'm going to say one day per week's worth of meals (3) or less don't have to be local, in case I need to eat out with someone, or I really need avocado or citrus, but a restaurant that I can count towards a local meal means one more restaurant meal I can have each week.

Thanks for your help!
