The mission of the North City Farmers' Market is to grow community health by offering affordable fresh produce, free health screenings, and healthy cooking demonstrations while encouraging community participation and being a stabilizing force in the neighborhood.
Hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July holiday! I know I did. I went downtown and watched the fireworks with some friends and pigged out on some tasty barbecue. :-)
The 13th Street Market list of produce keeps getting longer and longer each week! I am happy to say that one of my favorite "fruit snacks" will be featured in this week's market...are you ready?
When I was a little girl, I used to help my grandmother plant in her garden. She had a host of fruits and vegetables! I remember them being so delicious, and her plums were the tastiest. I remember the plum juice running down the side of my face as the sweet and bitter taste tingled on my tongue. They were so amazing! Come out to the North City Farmers' Market this Saturday to grab these jewels! Has there ever been a time when you took a whiff of something or seen something that immediately brought you back to one of your favorite memories? Remember that the best memories are made from the things you least expect.
