The Norwich Farmers' Market moves indoors this Saturday! You can find us at Tracy Hall in Norwich from 10-1pm with a full spread of fresh greens, herbs, roots, sweet potatoes and more! We have some super healthy foods to help you get through the dark days of November. At the market we'll have plenty of leafy greens, brussels spouts, and sauerkraut!
Root 5 Farm Powerkraut is made using a traditional method of lacto-fermentation. We use only two ingredients: our own organically grown, freshly harvested green cabbages and Maine sea salt! Traditional sauerkraut is a natural pro-biotic food that has many well-documented health benefits. You can find out more about our Powerkraut on our website.
Our fresh, young ginger will be for sale at the market this Saturday! The ginger we grow at Root 5 Farm is juicy and plump, with a pink blush. It has a translucent skin that doesn’t need peeling. Just wash, trim the cut surfaces, grate, or chop, and enjoy. Ginger is a nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being. You can find recipes and more information about young ginger on our website.
We also have a beautiful crop of fresh, young turmeric root available right now! Fresh turmeric's bright orange flesh is earthy and peppery and it has a livelier flavor than the dried, powdered version. Turmeric offers many health benefits since it has both anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. Boost your immune system by making your own coconut milk curry (using ginger and turmeric!) or try this recipe for golden milk.
See you at the market!
