Recipe Rehab's, Chef Mareya Ibrahim, Cooks at the Market!

Persimmon Kale Salad and Carrot Avocado Soup--Yum

Do yourself a favor and mark this on your calendar right now! This Sunday 12/2 at 11:30am, Chef Mareya Ibrahim from ABC's cooking show, Recipe Rehab, will show us how to make fresh fall farmers' market recipes. Mareya is "The Fit Foody"--TV chef, writer, educator, and award-winning food industry entrepreneur. Mareya also writes for Edible Orange County (where you can find us too). Her mission is to help show how easy it is to "make every bite count" with food that feeds your body while saving your sanity, waistline, and wallet. We can't wait to learn from the best on cooking up fresh farmers' market meals.

Farmer Spotlight: Pedro's Organic Avocado Ranch

Have you had a fresh organic avocado from Pedro's Ranch yet? Delicious! Pedro's Avocado Ranch grows organic produce in Fallbrook and though they're known for avocados, they also have tons of interesting seasonal organic produce. Try persian cucumbers, persimmons, pomegranates, dragonfruit, tomatillos, butternut and winter squash, and even great lemon and limes to make your face pucker! Stop by this Sunday and say hi to Jennifer and Jesse. We have a feeling you'll want to pick up a few persimmons and avos after watching Chef Mareya...

We Now Accept Credit Cards 

How many times have you found yourself at the farmers' market without cash? Maybe you wander out for a quick Sunday morning walk just with credit card in hand to grab a cup of coffee, but wow--suddenly you stumble upon our charming farmers' market and oh, man--you really need to get cilantro for those tacos tonight, and yep, you really should restock your healthy meal essentials: kale, carrots, oranges, onions, avocados, almonds, etc... Well, no need to go home empty handed any longer. Visit the Information Booth under the red canopy and we'll get you set up. Now there's really no excuse not to buy fresh and healthy local food.

CSA Starting Early 2013 

Thank you for getting in touch earlier this month to let us know you're interested in a CSA program. We hope to roll it out in early 2013, however we still need to secure interest from more people in order to make this a viable steady source of income for our local small family farmers. We are also recruiting volunteers to help us organize the logistics of packaging and pick-up. If we haven't heard from you yet, please contact us if you're interested in a 12 week CSA program to support our local farmers. More information to come on price, products, pick up times, and sign-up. 

Rain or shine, we'll see you every Sunday 9am-1pm! -NBCFM
