The Artichoke Trail.

THE ARTICHOKE TRAIL By James Bernard Frost

The Artichoke Trail is a guide to vegetarian restaurants, organic food stores, and farmers' markets in the United States. The first section includes restaurants and food stores listed by region and state. Living in Maryland, my initial instinct was to look for the Mid-Atlantic region. I was surprised to find Maryland and Washington, DC under the Northeast region. New England states are also listed under the Northeast. I found that a bit confusing. Nevertheless, you will find valuable restaurant reviews and other useful tidbits for reggie-friendly eating. Lengthy, honest reviews of selected restaurants are given and in other cases, brief write-ups are offered. Unfortunately, I found a lot of information that is already out-of-date. This is due to the nature of the restaurant industry (only 1 out of 10 new restaurants survives after the first year or so).

The other section includes an extensive list of farmers' markets arranged alphabetically by state. Included is the location of each market, a telephone number for more information, and the day(s) the market runs. I was happy to see how many farmers' markets now exist across this country. This certainly is a good sign.

The Artichoke Trail (ISBN 1-55650-878-6) is published by Hunter Publishing. The book is 436 pages long and retails for $16.95. For information call (800) 255-0343 or visit <>. Reviewed by Debra Wasserman.
