Some of my stash from the Market!
Holy Holiday Market Haul!
In case you missed it, White Bear Lake was host to a winter farmers market last weekend, and it was a huge hit! So much real, whole, local food under one roof. It was a blast to see everyone getting excited about local foods – thanks so much for making it a great success: for the farmers, vendors, White Bear Area Food Shelf, Tamarack Nature Center and BearPower.

Thanks for following along on this journey to find good, simple, local food- I truly appreciate it.

**Looking forward to sharing recipes made with all the local food I bring home from this market!**
White Bear Lake’s first time Winter Farmers Market has turned into something bigger and better than I could have imagined- all because so many people came together and energized this event. White Bear Lake was ready for this farmers market, and I feel darn lucky I get to help make it happen!
