This Saturday's Market is packed with education, community and fresh food! We are excited to be a part of the 11 Days for Food Justice event calendar! Check out all of the events covering an array of Food Justice issues for the next 11 days by going to the Non-Violent Carbondale 11 Days website or by visiting their facebook page.
Tomorrow at 9:30a.m. join Mike Hatfield from Flyway Family Farm for a demo all about mushrooms! He'll bring the growing logs and show you what a "real" mushroom looks like (hint: the beautiful oyster mushroom you buy at market are only the flowers of the plant!)
Then, tomorrow at 10:30a.m. join Chris and Lili from the Juicing Bar as they talk about the delicious benefits of juicing! Discuss new juicing recipes for everyone, from the person who just loves fresh juice, to those wanting to use juicing to enhance every aspect of heath!
All Market long, enjoy family activities! WSIU Public Broadcasting will distribute free Sesame Street Food For Thought: Eating Well on a Budget toolkits containing DVDs, a children's story, and recipe cards in English and Spanish. These toolkits are a great way for families to learn about healthy habits while enjoying the popular PBS KIDS characters. WSIU will lead children in playing the Sometimes and Anytime Food game and games based on Fizzy's Lunch Lab.
