Hi, everyone! Guess what? Here’s big news! This is Judith D. writing to let you know Allrecipes is going live this summer at a farmers’ market near YOU—or near your family or friends!
It’s our very first venture with a live community presence. That means we’ll have an Allrecipes booth, talk to people face-to-face, hand out recipes, answer questions, demonstrate our site and show all your contributions that make it so terrific, and more. We are SO excited!!!
We know how popular farmers’ markets are: 86% of you who answered our survey this spring said you think “food bought at farmers’ markets tastes better.” We also know how much you value our farmers’ market articles. Some of you around the country are even blogging about your local farmers’ market adventures!
Check out the Allrecipes Fresh Picked Meals tour!
On Saturday in San Francisco, Allrecipes will kick off the Allrecipes Fresh Picked Meals tour at the Ferry Plaza Farmers’ Market. From there, we’ll visit five more cities across the country; see the complete schedule below. At the Allrecipes Fresh Picked Meals booth, you can stop by to learn recipe recommendations for your farmers’ market produce buys, receive free Allrecipes recipe cards featuring cool summer dishes made with farm-fresh fruits and veggies, sample new Snapple flavors made with real cane sugar, take a survey, and play food-themed games. It will be fun!
Here’s the farmers’ market tour schedule. Come visit! Spread the word and let your friends and family know so they can check out our booth and see Allrecipes live! We’d love to meet you.
