Bring Your Shopping List

The 10-Ingredient

Shopping Trip

Many people turn to unhealthy restaurant meals and takeout because they don’t have time to shop. Mark Bittman, food writer for the New York Times is always trying to make cooking easier for people without losing quality or flavor. He makes it surprisingly easy to cook a week’s worth of dinners with just a 10-ingredient shopping trip.

Maybe you’ll be inspired to come to the Liberty Lake Farmers’ Market for your own version of the 10-Ingredient shopping trip.

Food has Roots…
Sometimes we forget that our food has its roots (literally!) in the ground.

School will be starting in just a few weeks and Harvard University is leading the way in making school food not only delicious but going back to the roots of where food comes from and providing education about agriculture through their Food Literacy Project.

The truth is that most of us have never hoed potatoes, weeded strawberries, fed pigs or milked a cow. Maybe you couldn’t even say what potato plants look like or what cows smell like. Today most food comes from grocery stores and restaurants, not the farmer and milk man. At Harvard University they are doing their part.

You can learn a lot about these things and others by shopping at the Farmers’ Market.
