Hear ye, locavores! Here's something to get your motor going: Crave Magazine's Farm to Plate event is back again this year, and it's bigger than ever.

For the unfamiliar, here's the deal: This year, more than 25 of Columbus' best restaurants have worked up exclusive menus for the 10-day event. And the kicker - at least 70 percent of all the ingredients used in the dishes were grown locally, including produce and meat.

The eclecticism is noteworthy, with restaurants ranging from the tapas-happy Barcelona to the comfort and elegance of the sandwich-making Katalina's. Even the likes of El Vaquero will have a special menu for those who don't feel too gourmet.

Come out and feast upon the wealth of Ohio-infused foods, for one day or all 10. Regardless you'll be full of guilt-free eats.
