EDIT: According to the man himself, it’s next week.
So it’s a little chilly, but you might want to brave the cold to head out to the Farmers’ Market today next week and see if you can spot Top Chef’s Tom Colicchio, who will be there to promote the Good Food, Good Jobs initiative. The idea is, as they put it “Just as the Obama administration and Congress have supported a ‘green jobs’ initiative to simultaneously fight unemployment and protect the environment, they should launch a ‘Good Food, Good Jobs’ initiative.”
Check it out and get some tasty treats while you’re at it. We’ve got the full list of stands via the Foggy Bottom listserv:
Atwaters Bakery, Blueberry Hill Farm (organic), Bonaparte, Caprikorn (NEW cheesemaker), Cavanna Pasta, ChrisMarketplace (crabcakes, empanadas), Gunpowder Bison, Haskins Farm (pasture-raised meats, eggs), Lynnvale Studios (flowers), Pitango Gelato, Quaker ValleyOrchard (asparagus, apples, cider, honey), Sunnyside Farm & Orchard (seasonal fruit, veggies, delicious prepared foods).
At market this week:
FRESH at Market: Asparagus, spinach, salad mix, radishes, spring flowers, pasta and sauces, chicken, gelato, bison (including jerkey), goat’s milk cheeses, crabcakes, empanadas and lots of prepared foods (soups, dips, hummus, more!).
