One way Cantelmo plans on introducing people to local produce is through “Farm to Fort” dinners.
“Farm to fort dinners have traditionally been a place where people can get a dinner made completely out of ingredients from the farm,” Cantelmo said. “These are done by different chefs, usually from super high-end restaurants, and they prepare a menu based on what we offer and serve dinner.”
In addition, Cantelmo said the Kensington store will also open early at 6 a.m. to serve coffee and baked goods to commuters on their way to work.
“Again, all from a local base,” he said. “Obviously, coffee doesn’t grow locally, but we’ll be using local companies.”
