Eat Local Challenge July 1 -14th

Food Conspiracy’s Eat Local Challenge is from July 1-14th, all local produce and locally produced grocery items are 10% off for everyone. Gather your friends and family for a barbecue, try brewing your own pale ale, make a batch of pickles–declare independence this 4th of July!

Food Conspiracy invites you to revel in local during the Eat Local Challenge July 1-14.  Now is the time for real tasting tomatoes, Conspiracy Grown basil & sunflowers, Forever Yong Farm Korean melon, Exo’s mesquite syrup sweetened and chiltipin chile spiked cold brews, Curly Wolf kombucha in your mixed drinks, San Xavier Co-op Farm traditional teparies, and Conspiracy Kitchen made salads and sandwiches. If it’s grown, brewed, fermented, baked or produced within 200 miles of downtown Tucson—it’s local and we’re celebrating it and it’s all 10% off during the Challenge.

Next, Food Conspiracy is handing over our Instagram account during the Challenge to showcase the people and places behind the food and to give followers a behind-the-scenes look at daily life on local farms, wild harvested desert food walks and preparations, to cold brewed coffee and regionally inspired drinks at a local coffee shop.
