January is the time we all start thinking about our health and losing weight and looking younger and staying healthy. Make your first commitment of the year be to building a healthy foundation by eating the healthiest foods for you and for the planet. Buy local, organically produced foods! And this weekend as part of the Local Foods, Local Chef’s Series Heather Flournoy of www.KatonahGreen.com will be sharing some recipes for immune boosting winter drinks, and we’ll have a special guest…. Annmarie Gianni of the Renegade Health Show (and Kevin too!) sharing some samples of her new organic skin care line.
We are so lucky to have Madura Farms supply produce year-round at our market! They grow vegetables, exotic mushrooms including the immune boosting maitakes, and herbs in rich soil in the black dirt region of NY, in hoop houses and greenhouses, so we can have fresh produce in January (brrr…) And New England Farms gives supplies us with grass-fed meats, eggs and maple syrup all winter, and Guy Hodges supplies us with raw local honey.
There will be lots of other vendors there, including Renee’s Jams, (these are really special and unusual jams like jalapeno apricot, quince and persimmon…yum!), Go-Go’s organic coffee and soups, and Wave-Hill artisan breads. If the weather cooperates for fishing days, we’ll have fresh-caught fish and seafood from Seatuck.
