Summer Schedule – Chime in!

As spring turns to summer, the Mobile Farmers Market team is looking ahead to a busy season. In order to maximize our impact, we’re sharing our draft summer schedule for market events. We only have one vehicle right now, so timing is key, and we hope that you’ll help us improve on our draft in two areas.

First, let us know if there are important events in your community that we are conflicting with or missing, especially if they’re related to food and agriculture.

Second, let us know if producers in your community would benefit from workshops focused on specific crops or methods, USDA agencies and programs, or regional food resources. Our workshop schedule will be based on this feedback. You can read more about our workshops at http://www.iacgreatlakes.com.

Here’s our draft schedule – please chime in!

Native Salad: An Intertribal Treat

Our recipe of the week brings together wild rice, wildberry syrup, and white corn for an intertribal treat.

Great on tortilla chips or as a side!

Great on tortilla chips or as a side!

First, mix up the vinaigrette:
2 tablespoons Red Lake Nation Wildberry Syrup
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
4 tablespoons rice wine or apple cider vinegar

Then add the vinaigrette to:
2 cups cooked wild rice
1 cup cooked tsyunhehkwa white corn
1 cup cooked kidney beans (canned or fresh)
1 cup diced apples (green apples work best)
3 – 4 stalks diced celery

If this is your first time making wild rice, not that unlike brown or white rice, wild rice requires 4 cups water for every 1 cup of rice.

Enjoy! And don’t forget to post some pictures.
