This Week at DFM: February 20
Hello DFM Shoppers,
This year’s Winter Market, our largest in 13 years, is full of many options. From produce to proteins, you can also find fresh baked breads and treats, pickled vegetables, jams and jelly, cheese, prepared foods, Italian sauces, dressings and marinades, fresh cut flowers, and speciality items like honey, olive oil, and spices.
Many think the winter months are not a busy time for farmers and local producers, but the work never stops. Whether they are harvesting or preparing for the next season, there is always something to be done. Even during the preparation for another busy growing season, farmers and producers are gathering and creating to ensure shoppers have access to fresh local items year-round.
This week while at the Davidson Farmers Market, think of how you can stock your pantry and refrigerator with local items for the coming week to make complete meals or prep meals and freeze for later in the weeks to come. What we love about DFM is that you can find everything you need, year-round, to make delicious food from local purveyors.
There are four Winter Markets left before we are back to every Saturday starting in April. This Saturday looks like a sunny morning, but still chilly. Dress warm and we’ll see you Saturday morning!
