Healthier Choices, Healthier You!

"At the beginning of the year it's easy to feel like you have to make a drastic overhaul to your diet, but often that just leads to an ice cream craving that won’t quit. Eating healthy is a lifestyle change, one that requires incremental modifications and the addition of more healthy ingredients. Rather than jumping in head first, start with small steps like the following that you can feel good about..."

Worthington Farmers Market: January 24th

"For me, as a farmer and food activist, cooking is the creative process that connects the work of the farmer/gardener/herdsman/fisherman/hunter/forager with the work in all kitchens: transforming the bounties of the land and sea into feasts of honest, nutritious, seasonal, inspired food."

- Thomas Harttung

One for the Cook's...


"Invariably, we hear that there is simply no other way to feed and clothe ten billion people on planet Earth. If you are not an agricultural expert, or a trained environmental economist, you will quickly find yourself in unknown territory, with people throwing facts and figures and thick reports at you. The system that exists has an aura of inevitability. Those who challenge the orthodoxy are deemed naïve, at best—or else reckless, or even dangerous and subversive."

"We challengers need ammunition: cookbooks of facts and arguments to commandeer in discussions about the future of food. Here’s an attempt at one..."

There's Nothing Better than a Sweet Potato 

Photo Credit:  Health Avenue

This week's newsletter is all about sweet potatoes! How to grow them, cook them, and store them! Read more about the sweet potato from one of our favorite blogs, DIY Natural!

But for now, how about some sweet potato fun facts?

  • A common misconception concerning the sweet potato is that a sweet potato is not a yam and a yam is not a sweet potato!
  • The shoots, stems, and leaves of a sweet potato plant can be eaten like spinach, either steamed or eaten raw!
  • The sweet potato originated in Central America where it was first cultivated over 5,000 years ago!
  • Animals love their sweet potatoes too!
  • Sweet potatoes are incredible nutrient dense and contain vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants!
  • And, sweet potatoes do not contain many calories. In fact, pound for pound, there are less calories in a sweet potato than a typical "Irish" potato! Do not let the name fool you!
*All facts were paraphrased from the DIY Natural blog!

This week is our monthly Market Sprouts event! Bring your sweet little ones to market and make a craft with us!

No Market Saturday, December 27th!

"Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!"

- James Pierpont


Wishing You the Happiest of Holidays!


Meet Barry! Barry collects food and cash donations for the Worthington Resource Pantry each Saturday at the market along with his fellow volunteers. With a generous donation from our very own Secret Santa, we made a healthy donation to the Worthington Resource Pantry while supporting our vendors, too. (This is just one of the several trips he made out to his vehicle!) Thanks to each donation, families in the Worthington area will have wonderful, fresh food to serve their families this holiday season. Thank you, Secret Santa!

This upcoming new year, let's take on the challenge and make our resolutions geared towards giving. The Worthington Resource Pantry is an excellent choice and is available to support at market each week!

With that said, we hope that you and your families have the happiest of holiday seasons! The market will be taking this Saturday, December 27th off and will return Saturday, January 3rd for our normal market hours! 

From the Worthington Farmers Market... Happy Holidays!
