Community Supported Agriculture #CSAday

Happy #CSAday – better knows as Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).  CSA programs support local farmers by securing funding for their upcoming planting season, while CSA members receive weekly boxes overflowing with high quality, fresh produce.  When you become a member of a CSA, you’re purchasing a “share” of vegetables from a regional farmer.

Community Supported Agriculture is just that, it’s an opportunity for the Community to ensure their local farmers have  Blue Sky Organic Farms , Crooked Sky Farms, Steadfast Farm and Maya’s Farm.

Rockin’ Root Veggies

The Winter Market is filled with fresh produce right from the farm.  What’s in season?  Sweet citrus, leafy greens and tons of root veggies!  Because root vegetables grow underground, they absorb a great amount of nutrients from the soil and a smart choice full of flavor. Not sure how to cook a turnip? Wondering what to do with a parsnip?  This week try one of these recipes.

Make the Switch + Ditch the Plastic Bag

Over the past year, the Phoenix Public Market community has supported our Plastic Bag Recycling Program.  We’re committed to collecting used grocery bags, offering them for re-use to other shoppers and hauling excess bags to recycling collection sites.

With the start of the new year, Phoenix Public Market vendors are going a step further and have committed to not use new plastic grocery bags.  Shoppers are encouraged to bring their own bags and use our recycling program to reduce waste.  Please help to support our efforts.

Every year, one trillion plastic bags – single use – are used, equating to 2 million per minute.

The Cost on our Wildlife An estimated one million birds, 100,000 turtles, and countless other sea animals die each year from ingesting plastic. The animals confuse floating bags and plastic particles for edible sea life such as jellyfish and plankton.  Other animals can become entangled in plastic waste.

Top 5 Market Habits for a Healthy New Year

freshyearfreshstart
Kick off 2019 with these five fresh habits to support a positive lifestyle.
1. EAT GOOD FOOD – This doesn’t just mean eating more fruits and vegetables (although that never hurts). It means knowing where your food came from, who made it and what’s in it. It means knowing that your pastry was baked with locally sourced heritage grains, Arrandale Farm eggs and Beetanical honey. It means knowing that your chorizo and sausage are coming from all natural, free range and grass fed meats. It means cooking at home with friends and family and enjoying a fresh meal full of flavor.
