Community Market

I think I'm going to need some help!

When we moved, I almost immediately volunteered to be a part of the Cheverly Community Market. And the first market is less than a month away!

I just added some links to the sidebar of the webpage. Click into the CCM sites, read about what's going on. Mark your calendars. And make a visit to this lovely hamlet and spend a morning buying locally grown produce.

But why do I need help? I volunteered for the education component of the market.

Although I like to think I might be smart, I'm having worries about what I'm going to be educating people about!!!

My conversations with the market manager have guided me in my thinking; but the topics are still very broad...

But for now I'm thinking of using an ingredient that will be sold at the market and providing a list of recipes featuring that ingredient, then selecting one of the recipes and highlighting it here on Eat With Me. I will provide a shopping list, step by step photo instruction and a place for feedback. I will also do what I can to come up with important facts around the feature ingredient.

What do you think? What type of seasonal/market fresh ingredients would you want to know more about? This is your chance to influence more of what will happen here on Eat With Me and what may happen at the Cheverly Community Market...please give me your ideas!

This is a great idea! I love that you're going to be a part of the food revolution. :-) And your idea of picking one ingredient sounds good to me.

You're so Omnivore's Dilemna! I would definitely love to do an ingredient of the month type of thing and hear about the history of it and what to do with it.

I'd love recipes/prep. ideas for some of the more unique items offered at the market.... Can't wait for them to start up again!!
