Good To Know

The less time between the when your food is harvested and when it's eaten, the more nutrients it packs. Most of the winter-grown produce at the Pleasantville Farmers Market is harvested just a day or two before. So when you eat locally-grown food, you not only put more money back into local economy; you not only put less pollution into the air from shipping; you also get the most nutrition for you and your family. That's good eating.

  • 3 Calendula flowers, petals pulled apart
  • 3 Snap Dragon flowers (for garnish)
  • 1 Persian cucumber sliced thin like half dollars
