With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we wanted to take a moment to thank our farmers for keeping food on our tables. They take huge risks to make sure we are fed breakfast, lunch and dinner, and we have the deepest respect for their service to each and every one of us.
We would also like to thank all the amazing people who come to the markets week after week. Without you, there would be no market. We know you have a choice as to where you shop for the food you serve your families and friends and we are honored that you have put your trust in FarmLovers. We love that you bring your neighbors and friends and share the experience with them! If you know someone who would benefit from knowing about our markets, please feel free to forward this newsletter to them, as way of introduction… then meet them in the cafe this week and introduce them to all your favorite vendors. Why not share the love as we move into Holiday Season, right?
And, if you are still trying to decide what to put on the table on Thanksgiving day, check out the great recipes for side dishes below. Enjoy!

Owen Taylor gently blows on tiny lettuce seeds from the Syrian region of Homs, sending fluff flying through their air and into a dust on his skin, as though he’d just emerged from a pillow fight. “I lose my breath pretty quickly, and I’m getting little bits of lettuce in my throat,” said Taylor. “It’s scratchy.”
