Janie Quinn of Essential Eating shared this news in her email newsletter. We felt you all might be interested. There is still time to order a turkey from Sue Bullock (information below) and you will definitely want to tune into ordering some sprouted breads and baked goods from Mockingbird!!!
Tomorrow, November 18 is the last day for the Essential Eating Farmer’s Market until Thursday December 9 when it becomes bi-weekly (every other week) through the winter. The hours for the winter market will be 11 AM to 1 PM. And happily, Mockingbird Bakery will be back with their artisan sprouted breads and are taking special orders now at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you ordered a turkey from Back Achers, pick up is Tuesday Nov 23 at 7 PM at the market location.
The Essential Eating Farmers Market is located at 515 Northern Boulevard Clarks Summit, PA.

Paul Plum Orchard has beautiful selection of fall fruit BUT this will be his last week. Make sure to stock up on his delicious apples. He has several varieties available from Cinnamon Spice to Fuji that will last several months stored in a cold place.
The next Essential Eating Lifestyle & Cooking Class will be Saturday Jan 22, 2011 in our organic kitchen classroom at Lackawanna College. For more information visit www.essentialeating.com or to register call 570 961-7813. We teach others what real food is, where to find it locally and how to prepare it simply. What a great gift for someone who wants to start the New Year making better food choices.
Good news. Stonyfield Farms announced this week that they are switching to plant-based plastic for their yogurt containers. This is a huge shift in food packaging and we’re glad that such a large producer is leading the way.
Packing school lunches? A 5th grade class in Seattle, Washington collected the disposed plastic bags from the lunchroom of their school. In one week they collected 930 bags. They stapled the collected bags together and the bag string circled the entire lunchroom twice! The kids crunched the numbers and found that they could use 32,922 disposable plastic bags in one year. So they had a fundraiser to get everyone using the ReUseies snack and sandwich bags. You can read the whole story at www.reusies.com. Check out reusable snack and sandwich bags at ReUsies.com. Great gift item. Just spreading good news.
Thanks for whacking the path to better food and making better choices!
And thanks to you Janie, for being such an advocate for local food!!!!
