Menu for the Week of June 18, 2012 — Chicharrones, Ice Cream Socials, and Farm Tours!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Fathers Day!  After all the planning you probably did for this past weekend, you haven’t even thought about what to do this week, right?  Let us help you! 

First, Thursday is the new Friday, so treat yourself to an evening at the East Atlanta Farmers Market, where you can replenish your pantry and always find good music and crafts for the kids!   This week, get ready, because Kevin will be hauling a turkey fryer over to our booth and frying up chicharrones to order at the market!  Go ahead, re-read the sentence.  We said it.  It’s happening.  Feel free to use Friday to recover. 

Then, this Saturday, Slow Food Atlanta’s Sixth Annual Ice Cream Social will be held at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market.  Get your shopping done in the morning, and then stick around for more ice cream and sorbet than you can imagine, made by both local chefs and amateur ice cream enthusiasts!  Enjoy and then vote for your favorites!  Of course, use the remainder of Saturday to recover.

Nothing to do on Sunday?  First, stop by the Grant Park Farmers Market in the morning (or the retail shop), of course.  Then, don’t pass up the opportunity to support the Global Growers Network (which we introduced in a prior post and which is already growing some of our produce!), by attending the International Farm Tour — where you’ll travel to 8 farms in metro Atlanta, tended by growers from 13 International communities.  Tickets are still available for purchase at two different price points — self-guided tours ($25) or VIP tickets ($60)!  You’ll be amazed at what’s being grown within a five mile radius in this great city!

Stay Hungry Atlanta!
