The Ithaca Farmers Market Cookbook celebrates the food, the people, and the mission of America’s most progressive farmers market. Readers will be able re-create many of the stand-in-line offerings and farmstead-inspired dishes that showcase the bounty within a 30-mile radius of Ithaca. In addition, leading local chefs with a reverence for the Market transform seasonal offerings into healthy, economical meals for your table. Vivid photographs bring the Market to life, capturing its personalities, eccentricities, and enduring popularity.
"Buying from farmers markets not only promotes edible education for children and adults alike, but also stabilizes a local economy and introduces people to a variety of culinary cultures. With delicious recipes and charming stories, the Ithaca Farmers Market Cookbook demonstrates the importance of fresh, seasonal and sustainable ingredients."
