Hyperlocal: Sample foods made in and around Somerville

Aram Boghosian for The Boston Globe

Winter storm Nemo threw a wrench into many plans, including “Local Is for Lovers,” scheduled for February. Now Somerville Local First will present the lovers’ market on April 14 in conjunction with Arts at the Armory. The event will feature Culinary Cruisers, offering samples from several ventures: kombucha tea, Ocean Ave Pops, and the popular new Union Square Donuts (inset). Q’s Nuts will be serving their addictive roasted nuts, Spindler Confections will be there with candies and caramels, and Black Magic Coffee Co. will be pouring from their mobile coffee and espresso bar. Doves and Figs Kitchen will have the jams and spreads market covered, while Cuisine en Locale will be offering samples of seasonal dishes from their innovative cooked CSA program. Eat that, Nemo! Local is for Lovers, April 14, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., The Center for Arts at the Armory, 191 Highland Ave., Somerville, 617-718-2191, LUKE PYENSON
