app of the week
iTunes; $2.99
Want to eat fresh and local but have no idea how to make it happen?

Check out Locavore, an iPhone app that connects to your GPS and lets you know what foods are in season in your neck of the woods, how long they're in season, and what's coming next. So you know whether you can whip up your famous asparagus dish for your next dinner party or stick to the stone fruit pie.

But that's not all! Locavore will also direct you to your closest farm or market so you can scoop up those tasty fresh and local foods.

Even better, you don't have to have an iPhone for this app, as Locavore has expanded to Facebook. In addition to downloading the app on your FB account, you can also network socially on your phone or FB account by updating your status with the "I Ate Local!" button -- telling your friends what's good in your neighborhood.

Mmmm, potatoes ...
