“We had the tremendous opportunity to film in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and the results were incredible. The Cedar Rapids tourism board made our decision to film in this great little city a no brainer. We were introduced to so many wonderful people and locations that fit our Locavore Mission perfectly, and the results exceeded our expectations. Julie Stow guided us through the history of Cedar Rapids and gave us insight to film a wonderful tribute to the local community and culture in Eastern Iowa. Thank you for welcoming us and creating one of my favorite episodes of Locavore!” - Chef Eddie G, Locavore Media Group
