North Carolina Food, Drink, Product - Local

CyndiA | May 15, 2009 09:25 PM

I am working on a cook out for media coverage online that is international.

I'd like to feature local products as much as possible.

Cheerwine is made here, so that's the drink. We also have local dairies for churned ice cream and local strawberry farms to top the ice cream off.

Now I am trying to think of other locals for the meat and side dishes or bread etc.

The closest town is Salisbury, NC. That is between Charlotte and Greensboro. Would like to keep it close enough to get some photos if possible. But, I think anything NC would be fine.

Not looking for freebies or anything. Just want to give a shout out to people in this area if possible.

All I have to do is cook out on a certain date. and write about it. Was menu planning in my head while trying to go to sleep. Thought of the local angle. Now here I am online when I should be sleeping.

I need to keep it fairly simple as it's a tailgater and need to carry it all in, but if I could get a few more local products, that would be nice I think. I just thought I could mention the company and maybe get a quote from someone at the company. So - looking for good stuff from this area if possible.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
