Have you ever been to a farmers market? Maybe you've seen one as you drive down the road or you've seen the little stands out front of a house selling fruit and vegetables. Well, if you haven't been to one you need to go! Maybe it’s the air filled with aromas of fresh herbs, or the sweet honey sticks I buy—I don’t know!—but I do know that farmers markets are wonderful if you want fresh fruit, vegetables, and other foods, like honey!
Hi, I'm Julian and I’m a proud member of the ChopChop Kids Advisory Board. Today I am going to tell you about urban farming and how it helps communities get access to healthy foods for a healthy living. Many kids take food for granted such as vegetables or foods they don't like. But they should keep in mind that there are some people that don't have much money and may not have much access to fresh foods because there aren't many grocery stores close by.
This is our last week receiving the Siena Farms Kids’ Share. This week, we are using our share to prepare dishes for a special holiday—Thanksgiving! Our Kids’ Share included Honeynut Squash, Leeks, Carrots, Savoy Cabbage, Purple-Top Turnip, Salanova Lettuce, Shallots, and Apples. The surprise was a kid’s chef’s knife. This is a great share for holiday side dishes.
