Market Supper

Lets face it. We live in Minnesota, and that means that eating locally can be a daunting task for a good portion of the year. While there are many things that we can get year round such as our meat, cheese, eggs, milk, and of course, jelly, we are slim on the fresh veggies, that abound mid-summer. As I polish off the last of a quiche that I made with eggs, cream, asparagus, and cheese from the Mill City Farmer's Market, I wonder if it would be so hard to eat at least one meal a week that is made up from local ingredients, even during the "lean months" To that end I am going to be putting together a Market Supper sheet each week to help plan a healthy local meal for my family and yours. Due to my limited technical abilities, you will have to click on the image to get it to enlarge, so that you can read and print it. I will also have copies available at our booth at the market each Saturday from 8:00AM to 1:00PM. For more information on the impact of eating locally and how one local meal can cut thousands of food miles from your weekly total and lessen your oil consumption, follow this link to an article that Kare 11 did with the help of Linden Hills Co-op See you at the Market!
