WHAT’S FRESH THIS WEEK AT MARKET?
Each week we like to feature the unique produce that some of our farmers will offer on their market tables this coming Sunday. We hope this helps you plan your shopping trip around The Square.
This week’s “Fresh at Market” featured produce is turmeric. (Pictured above.) Turmeric is a rhizome, or an underground plant stem. Rhizomes, like turmeric and ginger, store starches and proteins underground to survive unfavorable seasons. Turmeric has an earthy, sweet, pungent flavor. This plant has become popular in the past few years because of an active ingredient, cucumin, which has been studied for its anti-inflammatory qualities.
WE ARE COMMITTED TO SUSTAINABILITY
Last year, we brought in Better Bin Compost to enable our patrons to divert their food and organic waste streams from our regional landfills.
In 2021, we begin our evolution away from plastic. Our first step on this more “earth friendly” journey is to stop handing out single use “t-shirt” bags. You will see more paper and compostable materials around the market. And as always, we encourage patrons to bring their own shopping bags to The Square.
To ease our transition away from plastic—and thanks to a grant from Hamilton County Recycling & Solid Waste District and the efforts of Jim Lowenburg and the CORV team—our vendors will have reusable shopping bags to hand out as long as supplies last.
BUY WITH CONFIDENCE
Choose from a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, meats, eggs, cheeses, pantry items, herbs, cut flowers, garden plants, and artisan prepared foods—including rare heirloom veggie varieties and heritage breed meats. Hyde Park Farmers’ Market is known as a “growers’ market.” Offerings come from local family farms that employ regenerative and humane practices.
And, don’t forget, many of our producers provide preordering options.
