CELEBRATE LOCAL FOODS AT THE
100-MILE THANKSGIVING FARMERS MARKET AT CONCORDIA
Each year, more and more people are celebrating a 100-Mile Thanksgiving. The challenge is to make a meal using only ingredients found within 100 miles of your home. Come to Concordia College from 4-7 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 9 to gather up Thanksgiving Day meal ingredients at the second annual 100-Mile Thanksgiving Farmers Market in the Atrium, Knutson Campus Center, and meet the farmers and producers of the fresh, local and seasonal foods.
You will be able to reserve a free-range turkey to be delivered fresh (never frozen) Nov. 23. You can also purchase fresh, seasonal and organic vegetables including potatoes, carrots, onions, and parsnips or pick up Haralson apples for pies and sauces and sweeten both with locally produced honey. Also available are homemade dips and chips to serve as appetizers and highlight your entire feast with locally-made beeswax candles.
The event is sponsored by the Student Environmental Alliance and the Student Dietetics Association, as well as the Food Working Group (a subcommittee of the Sustainability Task Force) and the History department.
