We’ve launched a bi-monthly recipe project to keep you healthy. Julia Stevens, a market volunteer and registered dietitian and health coach, will develop nutritious recipes that will help you make the most of your shopping. And don’t forget our sponsor and neighbor, Fresh Thyme, as ingredient backup. Look for these recipes twice a month posted on our Market Recipe Board at the Information Tent, where you will also find a link to them on our website. For more on Julia and what she does, check out her website at www.allfoodisgoodfood.com. We would LOVE to hear how you use fresh herbs in your cooking! Share your creations with me and the Market on Facebook — tag us @activenutritionRD and @FarmingtonMarket

We're talking berries!
Strawberry shortcakes are a classic summer treat, and you can enjoy one at the Market Saturday. Here are two more ways to savor one of summer's stars, with a non-berry main course thrown in for balance.
