Farmers’ Markets Aren’t Just For Summer

Farmers’ Markets Aren’t Just For Summer

 

Cincinnati, OH October 16th, 2015-As the weather grows cooler, the Northside Farmers Market(NFM) gears up for its 6th Indoor Season, beginning October 21st. The year-round Wednesday farmers market will bring 26 vendors inside, and a food truck will set up outside the indoor space every week from 4-7pm at North Church, 4222 Hamilton Ave.

It can be surprising how much local fresh food is available throughout the year at NFM. Seasonal produce includes greens, squash, carrots, potatoes, onions, sweet potatoes, leeks, beets, radishes, cabbage, herbs, and more, along with breads and pastries, fermented foods, mushrooms, meats, eggs, and soaps. This year the market will add several vendors to the Indoor Market, including Cucina Della Patrizia selling prepared Italian foods like lasagna, pastas, and condiments; Baudry, LLC selling authentic Fresh éclairs and cream puffs; Bridges LLC, offering Indian samosa and dishes like curry and tikki masala; and Early Bird Bakery with gluten free pastries.

Also new this year, are the market’s Farm To Table Programs. Some upcoming classes include: Free Nutrition Classes on “Mastering Your Metabolism Naturally” taught by Sarah Williams on Oct. 21st, Nov. 11th, and Dec. 9th. Adult $10 Cooking Classes will be offered on Oct. 28th, Nov. 18th, and Dec. 16th and taught by Dietitian Mary Pat McKee. Kids’ $3.00 Cooking Classes will be offered October 21st, Nov. 11th, and Dec. 9th, open to children ages 7-11. The market will also host a Lotion Making Workshop on December 2nd, taught by artisan soap maker and NFM vendor Karen Blocher. Interested persons may sign up for classes on NFM’s website or at the market Info Booth during market hours.

NFM strives to make healthy local foods accessible to everyone. VISA, MasterCard, SNAP Ohio Direction Card, and WIC transactions are accepted at the Market Info booth. In addition, NFM offers “Produce Perks,” a matching funds incentive program which allows low-income individuals to receive up to $10 each market visit for use on vegetable and fruit purchases.

For a complete list of vendors, news about events and programs at the market, photos and recipes, visit our website, www.northsidefm.org.

Thank You for Supporting Walk-a-thon and Fall Festival

Thank you to everyone who devoted their time and talents to make the Walk-a-thon and Fall Festival a big success. As a community, we raised more than five thousand dollars to support the students of Parker Woods Montessori! The weather was perfect for Walk-a-thon and we enjoyed a happy, healthy turnout for Fall Festival.
