Epicurious at the Farmers Market
Epicurious at the Farmers Market

Yesterday Tanya Steel, the award-winning editor in chief of Epicurious, was at the San Francisco Ferry Building. YumSugar and I took a walk down to meet with the Epicurious street team and check out the latest produce at the Tuesday morning market. On a green market tour to promote eating locally, Epicurious has created a bunch of special recipes that feature produce specific to each region. For some tips on how to eat locally and more pictures of Epicurious at the Ferry Building,

  • Subscribe to a farm delivery. Fresh, in-season fruit and vegetables can easily be delivered to your door.
  • Purchase fresh ingredients at farmers markets.
  • Stop at roadside stands for peak season produce.
  • Don't be afraid to ask growers for advice.
  • Grow a garden! Nothing is more local than your own backyard.

I go to school in New York, but I live in northern California. As fresh as things can be at New York's farmers markets, nothing beats side stands in the bay. One way not to waste produce is shopping more frequently for it. On your way back from work or the gym, stop by an Asian market to buy your fruits and veggies. They're always ripe the day you buy them or the day after.

I make a lot of use of the farmer's market down the street. Ours has food stands as well, so I get to have a Turkish kebab every time I go, too :)
