This year’s U.S. Open  will be much than just an enticing tennis match – it will also be a showcase of mouthwatering local produce. For the 2012 event, the U.S. Tennis Association  will be sourcing forty percent of the fare for the event from local farmers  around New York State. In addition to featuring area eats, the menus will also be inspired by NY, highlighting delicacies that are native to our city and state.
Raising the typical stadium food to the next level, the U.S. Open will be known not only for tennis, but for its sustainable menu . After the championship is over, the USTA will extend its sustainability to ethic proportions and donate all of the unused local food to City Harvest .
