Farm to Table

Posted on

The concept of Farm to Table (as the name suggests) refers to the process by which food is bought directly from local farms and soon after, finds itself on our table. By skipping the middle man, we have fresher produce that not only tastes better, but is also better for our bodies.

The first step to creating your own farm to table menu is to research where to find your local farmers’ market. The produce on sale at the markets is not necessarily grown organically, but there are usually plenty of organic stalls selling local fruit and vegetables – without the pesticides.

All food groups are represented at the Farmers’ Markets, so you can go with a shopping list or see what is seasonal and be inspired from there. As well as seasonal produce, local breads, fish, meat, pastries and desserts are staples for most markets in Northern California. Even the simplest food served farm to table will taste incredibly fresh and rustic.

Enjoy the simplicity of the food nature has prepared for us, and be amazed at how flavorful produce can be when taken directly from the farm, to our table.
