Young and old alike are invited to visit the Greeneville Farmers Market and enjoy activities that are part of the Rooted in Appalachia
Roadshow.Saturday July 15, 9 am to 11 am. Created to build a vibrant local food culture by deepening the connections between local farmers, consumers, restaurants and retailers; Rooted in Appalachia Roadshows
are traveling to 16 farmers markets across the region. For a complete list, visit: http://rootedinappalachia.com/request-information/.
Rooted in Appalachia Roadshows
are free and open to the public and will feature: cooking demonstrations, tastings, giveaways, music and more.
Rooted in Appalachia is a program of Appalachian Sustainable Development (ASD), a local non-profit.
Lindsey Keen firstname.lastname@example.org, ASD’s Farmers Market Promotion Coordinator will be on-site at each event and explains, “There are a number of ways people can support Rooted in Appalachia’s
message – ‘Grown and Served Locally’. Folks can make a good faith effort to purchase locally grown foods year-round; They can grow their own food; Ask “what’s local” when shopping; Support local farmers and farmers markets; Participate in efforts to promote local foods; and Choose local beers and/or wines. Buying local is always smart. A dollar spent locally multiplies its value each time it’s spent in the local economy.”
