Did you know that the greater Sacramento region has delicious, locally-grown produce available all year-round? While the delicious tomatoes and peaches of summer may not be available in December, there are always tasty, nutritious items available from local farms at our local farmers’ markets and your dollar or CalFresh benefits go a long way buying these local foods!

To highlight this year-round bounty, we are working on a Farmers’ Market Cookbook, with recipes using farmers’ market fruit and vegetables for every season. In addition to our own recipes, we want to include recipes from the community and that means you! If you have a recipe (or four!) to share, please submit them using the form below.

 Once we have our recipes ready, we will be publishing a cookbook to be given away for free to our CalFresh customers at local farmers’ markets and likely sold to others in the community as a fundraiser. If you or your organization is interested in sponsoring the printing of the cookbooks that we will give away, please reach out.
