Dublin Farmers' Market: September 25th

“Good farmers, who take seriously their duties as stewards of Creation and of their land's inheritors, contribute to the welfare of society in more ways than society usually acknowledges, or even knows. These farmers produce valuable goods, of course; but they also conserve soil, they conserve water, they conserve wildlife, they conserve open space, they conserve scenery.”

Wendell Berry, Bringing it to the Table: Writings on Farming and Food

Dublin Farmers' Market: August 28th

“Teaching kids how to feed themselves and how to live in a community responsibly is the center of an education.”

Alice Waters


Back to school, and wondering, "What's for lunch?

Many children consume at least half of their meals at school, and for many children, food served at school may be the only food they regularly eat. With more than 32 million children participating in the National School Lunch Program and more than 12 million participating in the School Breakfast Program, good nutrition at school is more important than ever.

Principles, teachers, school nutrition workers and parents are helping to make schools healthier places to learn by providing quality food and teaching children about the importance of nutrition and embracing a healthy active lifestyle.

Read about a mother and teacher, compelled by her own frustration with school meals, and her journey in eating school lunch every school day in 2010 just like her students. The book is Fed Up with Lunch: The School Lunch Project: How One Anonymous Teacher Revealed the Truth About School Lunches –And How We Can Change Them!

Dublin Farmers' Market: August 21st

"One should eat to live, not live to eat."

Moliere


Farm-to-Fork. Seed-to-Plate. Farm-to-Table. It doesn't matter what you call it, there are all types of events, themes, and definitions for celebrating our agricultural diets and lifestyles.

Farm-to-table (or farm-to-fork) refers to the stages of the production of food: harvesting, storage, processing, packaging, sales, and consumption. Farm-to-table also refers to a movement concerned with producing food locally and delivering that food to local consumers. Linked to the local food movement, the movement is promoted by some in the agriculture, food service, and restaurant communities. It may also be associated with organic farming initiatives, sustainable agriculture, and community-supported agriculture.

So how do you celebrate local food?

Dublin Farmers' Market: August 14th

“According to analyses conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 100 grams of fresh tomato today has 30 percent less vitamin C, 30 percent less thiamin, 19 percent less niacin, and 62 percent less calcium than it did in the 1960s. But the modern tomato does shame it's counterpart in one area: It contains fourteen times as much sodium.”

Barry Estabrook, Tomatoland: How Modern Industrial Agriculture Destroyed Our Most Alluring Fruit


Tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes... It's tomato season at the Dublin Farmers' Market! 

Scalloped Tomatoes from Saveur Magazine

4 cups fresh bread crumbs
¼ cup melted butter or extra-virgin olive oil 
2 tbsp. chopped fresh chives
2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
1 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 ripe tomatoes, thickly sliced

1. Preheat oven to 375°. Combine bread crumbs, butter (or oil), chives, parsley, thyme leaves, and salt and pepper to taste.

2. Press half the bread crumb mixture into a large baking dish to form a "crust." Bake until lightly golden, about 10 minutes.

3. Remove dish from oven, arrange a layer of tomatoes over bread crumbs, and sprinkle with more bread crumbs. Repeat process until tomatoes are used up, ending with a layer of bread crumbs. Bake until crumbs are golden and tomatoes are warm, about 10 minutes.
