Starting on June 9th, 2012 and occurring the first Saturday of July & August.
In order to learn how to preserve and conserve local, seasonal produce and fresh food items, the educational program is geared to showcase new and traditional methods of home canning, freezing and drying food to extend the lifespan and guarantee more fresh tasting goods over a longer time period.
“With the all the goods our vendors have to offer each Saturday at the market, we wanted to make sure our customers are equipped with ways to enjoy the fresh items over the year. Our mothers and grandmothers extended the lifespan of seasonal produce by canning, drying and cooking- we want to bring these methods back into people’s kitchens and showcase how good these can taste”, stated Ben Baxter, market manager.
All of the featured produce is available at the market for participants to try out their new found skills.
Interested parties can sign up early via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org –with the topic line “Food Preservation Series Part #2 ( or #3)”. The program participation is free and will be on a first come base.
