Happy National Farmers’ Market Week! Why do we love shopping at local markets? Check out the top 5 reasons below and share with us what you love!
1.) Preserve farmland
2.) Stimulate local economies
3.) Increase access to nutritious food
4.) Support healthy communities
5.) Promote sustainability
In honor of this weeklong celebration, we’ve been hosting a meal challenge. We created a meal list for breakfast, lunch and dinner and shared 21 recipes with you. You’ll find the shopping list online for what you can pick up at the market . Don’t worry if you’re joining the challenge late – the recipes are still perfect to use in the upcoming week. Check out our website for the full details and enjoy cooking with seasonal, local produce from the market. Also, swing by the Info Table tomorrow to pick up a special temporary tattoo!
Finally, don’t forget that registration is open for our final Homefries Kid’s Cooking Class of the season! We hope your young chefs can join Jeff Crane on Saturday, August 18. Register today as the class is capped at 15 students.
