Naan Bread Pizza

“My boys love pizza night! Why? Because they can customize their own pizzas with their favorite toppings. Black olives, mushrooms, spinach, onions, have been favorites as of late, but really any leftover veggies can serve well as a topping! Plus, these pizzas only take about 10 minutes in the oven… even faster to make than frozen pizza! WIN!” – Kati Mora, MS, RD

Never Miss a Trip to the Farmer’s Market Again with these Helpful Tips!

Most of us can probably agree that the Farmer’s Market is a wonderful place to go. Beautiful, fresh veggies, bright and fresh sunshine, community members mulling around – its a sensory experience that can really brighten your day.

Fruit at the Farmer's Market

But let’s be real. Getting to the Farmer’s Market isn’t always easy to do. In fact, I hear it all the time. Since the market is a seasonal occurance and often only happens once or twice a week in a community, its relatively easy to forget about market day or even struggle to fit a trip in.

But guess what? If you can begin to make time for a trip to your local farmer’s market today, it can easily become a mainstay in your routine. How you ask? Here are a few ways to help ensure you never miss a day at market again!

Figure out where your farmer’s market is located and what its hours are.

The first step in successfully visiting your Farmer’s market is making sure you know where and when to go. There are lots of ways to determine this. Many farmer’s markets have a Facebook page, but if you aren’t quite sure the name of your local market, see if you can find it on LocalHarvest.org

Set a reminder on your phone. 

Once you know where and when your farmer’s market is happening, set a reminder on your phone. Many farmer’s markets offer all sorts of events and programming throughout the season to really make it an all out food-related experience. Even if you don’t go every week, perhaps you want to try and plan your trips during the days of summer where there are special guests, chefs, or even outdoor yoga! By putting a reminder in your phone, you won’t have to remember all the nitty gritty details. Just set the reminder and let your phone prompt your memory.

Store your bags close to the door.

Keeping your reusable market bags near your door can also be a great, and subtle, mental cue to get up and go to the market. Organize them on your coat rack or store them in a clear bin. However they are arranged, just make sure they are clearly visible and easy to grab and go out the door with.

Make a grocery list – highlight the items you want to grab from the market. 

If you’ve been a member of our community for awhile, hopefully you are already in the habit of making a regular meal plan. If not, now is a great time to start! As you plan out your weekly meals and draft up your grocery list, highlight items that you could get at the Farmer’s market instead. This way you are intentionally carving out a purpose for your trip to the market. Odds are good that you’ll find some of the produce you need for your weekly meals at a better price. They will also probably add a whole lot of delicious, in-season flavor!

Invite a friend along.

Another sure fire way to make sure you carve out time for the market is to never go alone. Okay, you can go alone sometimes, but by inviting a friend to go with you, you’ll feel more accountable to go together. It also makes the trip even that much more fun! So invite a friend and make an experience out of your next trip to the market.

How do you make shopping at the Farmer’s Market a priority?
