Meet the vendors at the Waco Downtown Farmers Market and learn to create home cooked meals from locally grown food! We will gather at the farmers market, walk through the stalls and talk with several vendors about their products and how they got started as a farmer or producer. Several of the vendors will even have tastings ready so we can sample their products. The tour will focus on vendors who sell locally-raised meat, dairy and vegetables, helping you “grocery shop” at the farmers market for food you can use to create healthy, locally-sourced meals. Each ticket to the tour includes a canvas Farm Bound tote bag to carry your farmers market purchases!
In addition to the tour you can purchase a farm fresh meal kit, which will include all the ingredients you need to fix dinner for 4 people, plus a recipe that matches those ingredients. As we walk through the market, select vendors will have items ready for your kit, and by the end of the tour you will have everything you need to make an entire meal out of locally-grown food. The meal kit simplifies the shopping experience, and you know that when you leave you’ll have exactly what you need to create a healthy, fresh meal for 4 people.
This field trip will include:
- Walking tour of the Waco Downtown Farmers Market.
- Conversations with several vendors about their products and how they became a farmer.
- Advice on how to shop for local food that fits into your cooking routine and doesn’t break the budget.
- Farm Bound signature canvas tote bag.
- Optional: Farmers market meal kit, with all the ingredients and a recipe to create dinner for 4 people using farm fresh ingredients.
