One of my very favorite things to do is visit a farmer's market. The explosion of color and flavor and variety is not easily repeated at the local grocery store. In most cases, the produce you find at the farmer's market is local, organic and OH SO fresh. In fact, farmers usually pick produce early on a farmer's market morning. And what a perfect way to get your RAINBOW of color every day. Other jewels you can likely discover at the market are local honey, home-made jams, whole food baked goodies, farm raised organic meats, goat cheese and crafts by local artisans. What a TREAT! This summer I have had the opportunity to visit The Ferry Building Farmer's Market in San Francisco, The San Mateo Farmer's Market and The Sarasota Farmer's Market in Florida. And of course, I make a weekly visit to the local markets in my Upstate South Carolina. I even had the privilege to teach a smoothie-licious "Food For Healing" workshop at The Anderson Area Food & Farm Association Farmer's Market this month using produce right from the market. If you find yourself travelling with a little extra time on Saturday morning, check out area Farmer's Markets as part of your vacation plans to truly get a local flavor of the area in a BIG way .
“Food for Healing” is a FREE workshop designed to teach cancer survivors, caregivers, health care providers and anyone interested in better nutrition about a rainbow of colorful healing foods. "Food For Healing" is sponsored by Wind River Cancer Services to promote whole body well being. We meet on the second Tuesday of the month at The Kitchen Emporium in Anderson and the third Tuesday of the month at Earth Fare in Greenville from 5 – 6:45 pm.
