CELEBRATE LOCAL FOODS AT THE THIRD ANNUAL
100-MILE THANKSGIVING FARMERS MARKET AT CONCORDIA
Concordia College will host the third annual 100-Mile Thanksgiving Farmers Market from 3:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, in the Atrium, Knutson Campus Center. Each year more people celebrate a 100-Mile Thanksgiving by making their meal using only food produced within 100 miles of their home.
The 100-Mile Thanksgiving Farmers Market will be an opportunity to fill your thanksgiving table with some of the best, healthiest food our community has to offer including locally-made dips, chips and flax crackers; fresh, seasonal and organic vegetables including potatoes, carrots, parsnips and squash; and fresh Haralson apples and pumpkins for pies and sauces, as well as high quality honey to sweeten them all. For the main course, place an order for a free-range, organic turkey to be delivered fresh (never frozen) to the Atrium Nov. 21-22.
For kids of all ages, there will be a hands-on activity where they can grind both wheat and buckwheat to make up their own pancake mix to share with family or to give as gifts to their Thanksgiving Day hosts.
The event is sponsored by Building Sustainable Communities Initiative, a student capstone project.
