FROM POTATO GROWERS TO RESTAURANT OWNERS

“We knew within the first week that we’ve hit on something” says Wendi Seger, speaking of Locavores, Alamosa’s newest restaurant.  On September 5, 2016, Wendi, along with her husband Matt, opened Locavores, a restaurant committed to serving local, fresh food.  The Segers have been potato farmers in the San Luis Valley for over 20 years, but they saw a need for a fresh and healthy restaurant option, which led them into this new venture.
