Come celebrate autumn’s harvest time and our Hayfork Farmers’ Market with the Hayfork Cooperative on Tuesday October 21, 7-9 pm at Northern Delights Coffeehouse on 7091 main Street, Hayfork. Despite the terrible drought many of us have produce to “put up” thanks to our own gardening efforts and/or to the new and improved Hayfork Farmers’ Market. Under the able direction of Amanda Macon and in combination with the Summer in the Park, managed by Charlene Dunaetz, the market is expanded and now includes live, local music and other attractions. But like the animal and plant world it is taking its wintertime rest. So with the close of the 2014 growing season Hayfork Cooperative will be honoring this fine contribution to our community with special presentations by a few of the Market’s merchants.
One of them, Amy Davis points out that
what we eat is directly linked to how we feel and function! Focusing on eating superfoods, nuts, seeds, organic fresh fruits and vegetables in their raw state has proven through the ages to be highly beneficial. This workshop will go over basic raw food cuisine preparation (tools, techniques, recipes), feature 4 superfoods, and provide a resource list to take home.
A question and answer opportunity will follow.
Melanie Thibodeaux with her Demeter Home Baking enterprise will speak briefly. She makes wholesome sourdough and briochel breads, and cookies. Other Farmers’ Market Merchants will also make brief presentations about their products and market experiences.
