Get FEd! is here!

by Yael Ben-Chaim

We are very excited to launch our new interactive food education program, Get FEd!. We aim to use Get FEd! to enrich farmers market customers’ knowledge of how to utilize and engage with food obtained at the market. Throughout the market season, Get FEd! will focus on 12 seasonal fruit and vegetables that can be found at the farmers market. That means every Monday for the next 12 weeks,  keep an eye out for the following:

  • Two printable and downloadable recipe cards showcasing a seasonal fruit or vegetable;
  • A blog post highlighting fun facts about the selected fruit or vegetable, including nutrition facts, selection & storage information, and a bonus recipe; and
  • Shareable Instagram, Facebook and Twitter posts to spread the word about Maryland’s delicious produce!

Join us  and “Get FEd!” by sharing your recipe creations with the hashtag #getfedmd and credit your local market. Follow our materials weekly:
