ALG Reminder: We are closed this week!
Hi there! This is just a reminder that Athens Locally Grown will be closed this week to allow us all to celebrate Thanksgiving. If you need a last minute item from our local farmers, Heirloom Cafe on Chase Street will be hosting a mini version of the Athens Farmers Market from 11-2 on Wednesday.
If you’re still looking for inspiration and recipes, of course the internet has no shortage of Thanksgiving suggestions. Rachel Ray has a whole section of her site devoted to cooking Thanksgiving dishes made from farmers market ingredients, and it is an excellent stating point. You can find it here: http://www.rachaelraymag.com/easy-party-ideas/great-get-togethers/holiday-party-menus/farmers-market-feast-thanksgiving
I am very thankful for all the food options available to us provided by members of our community who care about the health of both the people eating the food they provide and the land from which it came from. And I find it very fitting that I get to express these thanks via a meal made from that very same food.
Thanks also to you, and happy Thanksgiving! We’ll see you in two weeks.
