On Saturday Sept. 12, the Southeast Area Farmers’ Market offers a free Urban Foraging workshop. Did you know that sumac berries can be brewed into delicious faux pink lemonade? Our Kitchen Table’s urban forester, Laura Casaletto, will share how to identify this and other edible plants growing in our neighborhoods and give tips on how to prepare them as tasty side dishes and beverages. For Casaletto, foraging is not just a hobby. She has foraged to feed her family for years.
The Southeast Area Farmers’ Market is open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays at Gerald R Ford Academic Center. The market warmly welcomes SNAP/EBT, Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB) and WIC & Sr. ProjectFresh as well as cash and debit cards.
