CYS goes to the Farmer’s Market!

Salads and smoothies are essential fuel for athletes.  This past weekend, we went on a search to find organic, seasonal and local fruit and veggies.  We hit up the Ferry Plaza Farmer’s Market  Saturday morning and thought we’d share some advice with you:

 

 Make sure to Bring:

  •   Reusable bags in all different sizes
  •   Cash
  •  Dirty Dozen list:  These are the foods that contain  pesticides, so make sure to buy these organic.   If you don’t have one print here


  Here’s what we took home:

  *Bunches of Kale

   *Sugar snap peas (eat these raw, such a great snack and perfect for the athlete on the go!)

  *Stone fruit! We loved pluots! What’s a pluot?  It’s a plum  + apricot.

 *Eggplant (Lacey is obsessed and its super easy to bake with)

 We encourage you to try out your local farmers market this weekend.  Scout it out, pack your bags and enjoy a home cooked meal.

    So happy I found your blog. I love that you reminded everyone of the dirty dozen. We grow most of our own veggies. But always use the local markets when we are in between crops. Be Well, Katherine
