Special Event – Garden Tool Swap
Its another first for the Market! Here is a great idea and depending on how good this one goes, we would like to plan several more “swap” events. Here is how it works, gather up your gently used garden tools, the ones you don’t need and bring them to the Market to share, trade or barter for something you need.
.
Sharpen your bargaining skills and come trade with your neighbors and make new friends. Gossett Brothers Nursery will donate a pack of organic seeds to everyone who trades at the event. You can find more information at The Katonah Green Calendar.

Thanks to Stacyknows, EcoKaren Lee and Slow Food Westchester for help in getting the word out and to Teich Garden Systems who is giving out tools  to “swap” participants.

Local Guys Cook Local Foods! Cooking demo, Sat, December 12, South Salem

Local Guys Cook Local Foods! Cooking demo at Gossett’s Indoor Farmer’s Market, Saturday, December 12th from 10-12:30.

This week’s real guy cooking is Max Barry, a personal fitness trainer from Danbury. He’s going to cook us  grilled sweet potatoes, grass fed beef and sauteed kale.

Max says “I like to keep it simple, clean and local. Just a little salt, pepper and olive oil, and good quality basics and it’s gonna be good. I’ve actually been developing a Spice Rub blend, that I came up with because I was eating too much salt. So in the process of finding one I liked, I got creative. I’ve ended up with a blend that just isn’t available in a store, so you can try it out this weekend.”

You can check out Max’s fitness site at http://www.nu-fit.net or follow him on Twitter @Nu_Fit

An essential part of the demo series is YOU! We want your questions on food, health, and cooking. Our goal is that you walk away inspired to cook with real foods and feel a connection to the producers. And of course we want you to stick around for samples of the foods created by our cooks!
Want to sign up to cook? Call Heather at 914.763.0474 to find out how.

Equally conducive to river or horseback adventure trips, you can cook fish/meats, vegetables, casseroles, stew, chili, rice, or even apple crisp. Robert and Heather Katonah Green’s Heather Flournoy are going to make vegetable enchiladas and a seasonal dessert. Come have fun, learn how to use your own dutch oven and cook up some seasonal produce.

Don’t forget that the market is INSIDE from now till March. The Christmas decorations are hung, the wood burning stove is fired up and, while the weather outside may turn frightful, inside Gossetts Farm Market its always delightful! See you Saturday!

Antifreeze for the body

On Saturday, October 17th, Gossetts Farm Market welcomes Holistic Health Counselor Lisa Miller. Lisa will teach us how prepare simple soups using fresh, local ingredients from the Market that will get your body ready for the chill of winter. Show up anytime between 11am-1pm and bring your family!

The Katonah Green Chef Demonstration Series runs at Gossetts Farm Market every Saturday from 11:00 a.m. till 1:00 p.m

What is holistic health counseling? Holistic health counseling treats each person as the individual that they are. What works for one person may not work for another.

Lisa Miller WellnessLisa works with the concept of primary foods and secondary foods. Primary foods are the things in your life: exercise, relationships, career and spirituality. Secondary foods are the foods you eat. You can eat the healthiest, cleanest diet in the world, but if you’re miserable in your relationship or unfulfilled in your career you will not be healthy.

Being healthy doesn’t take as much time as you make think. It actually gives you more time and energy. How? By eating well and leading a balanced life you will gain energy, decrease stress, think more clearly, rev up your metabolism, feel more confident and find time to do the things you love. You’ll feel amazing! Click on the Wellness logo above to see Lisa Millers website.
