What's new at the Fall Line Farmers Market?


Dear Ginger,
We are delighted to introduce the beginning of a new program called
Kids Corner:  promoting healthy lifestyles and nutritious food choices!
This is a primary goal for the market and children often do the best job of sharing these lessons with their parents.  Kids Corner will provide games and activities for children of all ages.  Supervised by Lesly McGiboney, a summer intern for Live Healthy Baldwin, children will get to have fun while learning something new every Saturday through July. Stop by the information booth to add your child's name to our mailing list and they will receive a weekly postcard containing educational information and announcements regarding upcoming activities at the market! 

Live Healthy Baldwin Intern, Lesly McGiboney, educating Kayla, Lily, Ryan, and Billy about the benefits of hydration.

Adults can shop while the kids are having fun with Lesly!  Many thanks to GMC for allowing the use of the grassy lawn in the shadow of the Old Capitol building for these activities!

  Challenge Yourself to Eat MORE Veggies!

  Finding new ways to cook your old favorites is a great way to make dinner fun again! Tired of steaming your vegetables? Try roasting them!

Alice Tenold shares how to make delicious side dishes using roasted veggies from the market!

Roasted vegetables can be the foundation of many wonderful meals. They can be served on rice, pasta, grains, and steamed greens. Add some chicken or another protein source for a complete meal.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut vegetables into bite-size chunks. Choose at least four vegetables (more are great, too) keeping in mind color, texture, and flavor. Possibilities include sweet potatoes, potatoes, carrots, zucchini, yellow squash, mushrooms, beets, eggplant, bell peppers, onions, asparagus, okra and cauliflower.

Place vegetables in a short-sided baking dish or sheet. Drizzle veggies with olive oil. Add garlic or dried herbs as to your taste. Fresh herbs and chopped greens can be added near the end of the cooking time.

Roast for ten minutes. Stir the vegetables and roast for another ten minutes. Roast for additional time until the veggies are as done as you like them.
