September Art Month
This September, The Northside Farmers Market features local artists at the market. September 3rd starts with April Culbreath's up-cycled furniture, Woman Art Ghana's handmade fair trade baskets and jewelry, and glass beads and jewelry by Janelle Arts and Doug Weber. Visit the market this month for great crafts and jewelry in addition to fresh foods.
Below, Annie Woods of Dark Wood Farm shows us the star shaped cross-cut of an okra seed pod.
Harvesting the unique pods can be an adventure; the plants grow to 6 feet tall, and Annie says she wades through the plants like a jungle, which "makes you sticky and itchy."
Annie eats okra pickled, fried, or toasted with oil, salt and pepper. High in vitamin A, C, K, and dietary fiber, it is well worth trying okra if you haven't already.
Try one of these five recipes, perfect for the okra novice.
The Northside Farmers Market Needs Your Support
Your financial support of the Northside Farmers Market (NFM) supports local small farmers and businesses AND makes a positive impact upon our community.
Northside Farmers Market is an important part of our community, a community that doesn't have a grocery store. We offer opportunities for low-income individuals to purchase fresh local foods through a $10 weekly matching program, kids activities which educate about healthy eating and cooking, a place for neighbors to shop, listen to music, and enjoy local products.
On behalf of all those we serve – low income households, local farmers, small businesses, and the community at large, we are asking you to make a gift to support the market’s ongoing operations. Every tax deductible gift will make a difference in the lives of many and insures that you can shop locally and conveniently.
Make a secure online donation bellow, or drop a check off at the market, or send to PO Box 19398, Cincinnati, OH 445219.
Checks should be made payable to the Northside Community Council, placing "Northside Farmers Market" in the Memo line.
