Bexley Farmers' Market: July 28th

What are you getting at the Market?


"Faster than you can say “kale salad” it seems like yet another farmers market pops up. In fact, there are currently more than 8,600 farmers markets registered in the USDA’s Farmers Market Directory. It’s easy to understand why they’re popular—fresh, local produce, plus a chance to meet the farmers who grow your food, all wrapped up in a fun, festive atmosphere. But you may also be a bit confused by what’s on offer at the market. What does all the hype about local really mean? Is it organic? And should you care?"

Bexley Farmers' Market: July 21st

Food Waste: The Ugly Truth


"Consumers waste plenty of food after the point of purchase, and we can change our habits to curb that — by planning our grocery trips better; by ignoring “best by” dates, which indicate nothing about the safety of the food; by saving those overripe bananas for banana bread. But we can help cut waste upstream as well by embracing broader aesthetic standards. Choose the odd tomatoes and the gnarly parsnips. Buy the undersized beets and the broken almonds. Tell our grocers and our farmers that we’d rather have a slightly dented butternut squash than a hot, dry planet. Support businesses that help get the less-beautiful produce out of fields and onto consumers’ tables. (One French grocer, Intermarch√©, began buying “ugly” produce in 2014 and selling it at slightly reduced prices at several locations; the success prompted the company to expand the initiative to all of its stores.) We can stop our valuable food — every pound of which represents a sizable investment of energy, water, labor and money — from leaving the system without fulfilling is purpose."

Bexley Farmers' Market: July 14th

Urban Agriculture and Farmers Markets


"Urban farming has many benefits. By growing food locally and giving under served urban neighborhoods access to fresh produce, jobs are created, local economies are strengthened by circulating dollars within the community, the harmful effects of food deserts are reduced, and consumers become engaged in learning how food is grown."
