Eating Well from the Carlisle Central Farmers Market

I am constantly asked by people how to shop and cook meals solely from the local farmers markets. As a vendor who puts in a 12+ hour market day (actually, that's every day on the farm), I'm faced with feeding my family as well as the goats, calves, cows, horses, turkeys, dogs, cats & bunny.

This is an example of a healthy meal with the majority of ingredients obtained at the Carlisle Central Farmers Market.

Grilled Fresh Ahi from Ted's Seafood seasoned with huli-huli sauce (soy sauce, Toigo Orchards honey, our fresh garlic and a few sesame seeds)

Green Bean Salad with produce from the Garden of Edenbo, toasted almonds from Castle Creek, Bovre fresh cheese from Keswick Creamery, our own fresh shallots minced with a spoonful of capers tossed with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Dinner for three: Less than $15 dollars and 15 minutes.
