Who? What? Where? When? Why? And Then, How!

The farmers' market isn't just a place to pick out tasty grub for next week, it can be a great place for learning and growing knowledge about our food chain.

So let's go find the roots of our food together during a fun visit to the a local farmer's market.

WHO GROWS OUR FOOD?

Yes, real people do the growing. They're called farmers! They work the dirt. They water and weed.

WHAT IS ORGANIC FARMING?

Organic farming is the production of food, including plants and animal products, using farming techniques that protect the environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare.

WHERE DOES MY FOOD COME FROM?

By asking the farmers where their farms are located, you will come to understand that food is grown local to where we live. Learn more about where certain types of produce is grown. Where do you live and what grows in your region?

WHEN CAN I EAT APPLES?

Strawberries in January? That's not natural...and your kids can learn that if you teach them about seasonality. As kids visit farmers markets on a regular basis, they will start to learn that fruits and vegetables are available at certain times of year - not all year round like at the supermarket.

WHY EAT LOCAL FOOD?

So why is it healthy and helpful to eat locally grown and seasonal fruits and vegetables ? What do you think?

HOW TO MAKE A MEAL

How does that food get on the table? Food goes from field to market to home to recipe to table!

Melinda, we have to go to the farmers market today. It is Saturday and they are only open until 1 pm.

Yes. Let's see. We will have spaghetti with tomatoes on Monday.
Vegetables and cheese on Tuesday. Squash soup on Wednesday. Thursday we will go have dinner with Eva and Friday we will make homemade pizza.
Melinda
What a plan!! I especially like the Friday meal!
Let's go.
They arrive at the farmers market. Walk through the booths and find Fred, their favorite farmer. Fred sells organic fruit and vegetables which he grew on his farm.
Nate
Hey Fred, how are you?
Farmer Fred
Hi Nate! Good to see you. I am busy today. What can I help you with?
Melinda
Hey Fred. Good to see you. We will need a bunch of vegetables!
Farmer Fred
Hi Melinda! Alright, let's start.
Nate
Okay let's see. Do you have any tomatoes?
Farmer Fred
I certainly do! How many would you like?
Nate
We need a lot - how about 2 pounds? And I would love to have some basil with them. Do you have any basil?
Farmer Fred
Nope. Sorry, I ran out of basil. But you can check out Macy's booth, she might have some left. Anything else for you today?
Nate
Alright. We will go to Macy's next.
Melinda
We do need some more vegetables. I think I would like to try your spinach. And your butternut squash looks amazing!
Nate
Yes. And some of those red onions, please. I need them for the tomato sauce.
Farmer Fred
So we have tomatoes, one butternut squash, some red onions and how much of the spinach would you like?
Melinda
Not that much please. Maybe just a hand full. Yes. Perfect.
Nate
That's it for today, Fred. We will head over to Macy's to buy basil and cheese now. How much is that?
Farmer Fred
That makes 10,50 $ for you friends. Stay healthy and see you soon!
Nate
See you next week!
Melinda
Have a nice day!
