Everyone knows farmers markets are a great place to make groceries and see neighbors and friends, but have you thought of CCFM as a gift destination? Giving the gift of local food gives love both to the gift receiver and your community, not to mention how delicious and beautiful a CCFM gift is! Grab a few jars of jam or syrups for the cocktail lover in your life, grits to keep them filled in both heart and stomach, or a bag of satsumas to fill a stocking (tastes so much better than coal!). Honey is sweet and barbeque sauce is savory and both are welcome additions under the tree. Not sure what to get? Market tokens let your loved one pick their own local gift and are available in as little or as much as you want, starting from $10. There are so many giftable items to choose from at market, we’re sure you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for. For a comprehensive list of packaged market gifts, where you can pick them up, and information on special orders click here.
Ready to come out and get that gift shopping done this Saturday? Come on out between 8 and 10 and take advantage of our free gift wrapping service! We’ll be out at market with free complimentary wicker gift baskets and other accouterments to make your gifts beautiful and ready to give!
This Satsuma Compote with Cinnamon and Basil is ideal for those who long to give a homemade gift this year. It is versatile and tasty and pairs well with ice cream and cookies or on top of your holiday bird; you can even use it as a condiment for a sandwich. Grab a bag of satsumas this week and get to cooking. Thanks to Chef Susan Spicer for this recipe!
December’s Green Plate Special vendor, Canal Street Bistro, is back again this Tuesday with local offerings to fill your belly and keep you sustained for the marathon that is December! If you can’t make it out to market, or need another fill this week, check out their mid-city restaurant and support those who support the market.
