Wordless Wednesday: Hometown Homegrown

This past weekend, I took my good friend Mrs. P, author of Barefoot Veggie Eater, to the Hometown-Homegrown at the Heinz History Center. The event was thrown by the amazing folks at GoodTaste! Pittsburgh with the help of the History Center and local food vendors from all across the greater Pittsburgh region.
