We're Back! Here's What's Fresh at the Worthington Farmers Market this Saturday

 

Fresh Picks from our Veggie Spy

 

 

We're BAAAACK!

 

After a one-week hiatus due to the annual Worthington Market Day, the Farmers Market and the Veggie Spy are back in action on October 5. Why not celebrate the return of the Market by going a tad outside your veggie comfort zone with these unusual finds?

Choy Sum is an Asian green that is completely edible - leaves, stems and even the pretty little yellow flowers! These greens, part of the Brassica family, are ideal for stir frying with garlic, rice wine and chiles. Pick them up at Toad Hill Farms.

 

Watermelon radish is an heirloom Chinese Daikon radish that is pink and magenta on the inside. When sliced they look like tiny watermelons! They have a mild, slightly peppery flavor with a hint of sweetness. Visit Franklinton Farms for these tasty treats. 

 

Chestnuts are not just for roasting on an open fire in winter. They are available now and can be candied, boiled, grilled, ground into a flour or even  pureed and sweetened to create yummy desserts. Chestnuts await you at Gillogly Orchard.

 

Mushrooms are plants, have tons of flavor and are nutritious to boot. That makes them honorary veggies! Spice up your weekend with Shitake & Onion Seasoning from Tiger Mushroom Farms. 

 

Supplies on these specialties are limited, so come early!

Practice will be a flow base with some variations built in to focus on strength and power, conditioning our core and flexibility. Please bring your own mat, towel and water.

 

RESCUEDohio is Back!

RESCUEDohio was founded in 2015 by a group of dedicated animal lovers in the central

 Ohio area. The founders came from various different vocational backgrounds, but all have one thing in common: the passion to save dogs, like Scout, pictured below.

 

The mission of this group is to help find homes for unwanted and abandoned dogs and to advocate for the rights of all animals everywhere.

 

Elwood, pictured here, will be visiting the Market tomorrow. To learn more about him or any of their adoptable dogs, visit booth #83 on the lawn of the United Methodist Church.

The Market Wellness Doctor's Weekly Health Tip

Visit Dr. Matt in booth #74, near Dewey's Plaza

 

Lifestyle Matters. How we eat, move, sleep and manage stress has an enormous impact on health and longevity. 

 

Health Tip #64: Resveratrol

 

Resveratrol, is a natural compound found in the skin of red grapes, redskin peanuts, blueberries and Japanese knotweed. It has been shown in multiple studies to act as an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory. It maybe one reason that red wine, in moderation, provides some cardiovascular benefits.

 

Resveratrol has been shown to reduce oxidized LDL, total cholesterol triglycerides and LDL cholesterol while increasing HDL(good cholesterol) (1). It has also been shown to slow or prevent various chronic diseases.

 

Resveratrol has also been shown to exert beneficial effects on metabolic diseases like obesity, insulin resistance,high blood pressure and fatty liver disease. The antioxidant action of resveratrol may be the reason it is showing promise in treatment of Alzheimers disease by quenching free radicals, decreasing neuronal inflammation and improving cognitive performance.(2)

 

Remember, food first to get more resveratrol, then consider supplemental forms in discussion with your primary doctor.

 

See you at the Market!

 

Be Well,
