CELEBRATE LOCAL FOODS AT THE FIFTH ANNUAL
100-MILE THANKSGIVING FARMERS MARKET AT CONCORDIA
Concordia College will host its fifth annual 100-Mile Thanksgiving Farmers Market from 4-7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 26, in the atrium of the Knutson Campus Center.
Each year more and more people celebrate a 100-Mile Thanksgiving by making their meal using only locally-produced food that is good for you and for the environment. The 100-Mile Thanksgiving Farmers Market will be an opportunity to fill your thanksgiving table with some of the best, healthiest food our community has to offer including a wide variety of seasonal and organically grown foods including squash, potatoes, pumpkins, honey, maple and fruit syrups, apples, and locally-made dips, chips and breads.
The market is co-hosted with Prairie Roots Food Co-op. Their online market (prairie-roots.coop/) will be open to the public Friday, Nov. 22 through noon Monday, Nov. 25 and pre-ordered items will be available for pickup at the 100-Mile Thanksgiving Market. Additionally, more than a dozen vendors will have items for sale on site. There will also be hands-on activities for children of all ages and live music.
