Celebrate farmers markets by spending your money there!

August 12th, 2011 · Comments Off on Celebrate farmers markets by spending your money there! · Farmers markets, local food

It’s national farmers market week, always a good time to think of and thank the farmers who grow the food at our markets. The Lawrence Farmers Market, in fact, is being recognized this week by the Farmers Market Coalition as a fine example of what a farmers market should be. As a fan (and board […]

Mushrooms fail to thwart eat-all resolution (so far)

May 12th, 2009 · 3 Comments · local food

A glimmer of spring arrived at my house this week, and I’m not talking about yesterday’s unseasonable warmth. Rather, I’m referring to the flier announcing the 2009 Rolling Prairie Farmers Alliance produce subscription service, a type of CSA (community supported agriculture). The alliance is a group of six farms that cooperatively furnish a weekly vegetable […]

Season is turning, and so is the produce

September 9th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Food selection, local food

The weather around here is strangely cool—Monday’s high was 65 degrees Fahrenheit at a time when 85 or 95 would be entirely unsurprising. Still, the produce in Monday’s bag from the Rolling Prairie Farmers Alliance reinforced the idea that the seasons, they are a-changing. As you can see, we still have top o’ the summer […]
