This time of the year vegetables feel the neglect.
With cookies, key lime pie, kugel, monkey bread, lasagna, and holiday parties vegetables tend to get kicked to the curb for a month. Try to stay inspired to keep up your veggie intake (the recommended amount is now 5-9 servings of fruits/vegetables a day) by learning new tasty, nutritious recipes. This Sunday, December 6th come by our Healthy Cooking Demo: Easy Soups and Simple Salads to get new ideas on how to keep your meals budget friendly and health friendly this winter season.
You can also spread the love of the veggies this season with a gift certificate to the farm that can be used in the Sweetwater Market Stall on Sundays or towards a CSA share. Gift certificates are available for purchase at the Sunday Market.
