This field trip class is perfect for you if you want to learn how to confidently buy groceries from the farmers market, while engaging directly with the growers of your food. Moving from stall to stall, you will learn about the benefits of buying from the farmers instead of the supermarket, and the benefits of buying local and seasonal food. I will show you what each farmer has to offer, while learning about different ingredients. We will have the opportunity to talk with the farmers and ask all the right questions about their produce and farming practices, with the purpose to know exactly how their food was grown and handled. The objective of this class is to show you exactly where to get what, while having fun in the process, so that your market shopping experience will be more effective and less overwhelming, while saving time in trying to figure out every stall along the way.
This class consists of a 1 hour field trip to the Union Square Farmers Market with me, where I will show you how to confidently navigate the market. You will also receive a variety of helpful handouts which include the local and seasonal food guide, and farmers market shopping guide.
as a result of this class you will...
