OSU-OKC Farmers Market, one of the best and oldest in the city area, is focusing on cold weather foods -- preparing and integrating them into your diet on tomorrow's, Saturday the 5th, market. In addition to information and locally grown food from Oklahoma farmers and harvesters, Kamala Gamble, co-founder of Slow Food Oklahoma City, and owner of Guilford Gardens, will speak on “Ways to Include Local Cool Weather Foods into Your Family’s Diet” at 11 a.m.
"Participants can also learn about how food was prepared at the turn of the century in central Oklahoma. Judy Howard will be signing copies of her cookbook, '1905 Cookbook,' which is based on 1905 recipes and history. Proceeds from book sales benefit Oklahoma’s hungry children" (from the press release).
The market of growers, food preparers, and crafters from Oklahoma opens at 10 a.m. and closes at
1 p.m. It's located in the Horticulture Pavilion, 400 N. Portland Ave. on the OSU-OKC campus.
