Info for Employers

There are many people in our community who want to eat better but find it hard to find the time, support, and inspiration to do so. If you represent an organization seeking to support your clients in living a healthier lifestyle, please contact us. Same goes for employers who want to offer encouragement and resources for their employees. We would be more than happy to assist and collaborate with you. 

Here's a brief description of our In The Kitchen initiative:

At Tuesday Market, we know it can be a challenge to figure out what to do in the kitchen with fresh, local, whole food ingredients. You might have kids who only want to eat meals out of a box, or you might have less than a half-hour to whip up a dinner for your entire hungry family. You might be on a very tight budget, you might be cooking just for yourself, or you might discover foods at market that you simply have never seen before. Whatever the challenge, we want to make it easier and more enjoyable for you to eat well.

We spent last winter brainstorming ways that we could encourage and support people as they build their skills in turning fresh, whole foods into delicious meals. We realized that we need to help rebuild a shared culture of food preparation, in which people share their diverse skills, knowledge, recipes, ideas, and inspirations with one another. Our goal for this season is to use our market as a hub where this sort of information and enthusiasm will be exchanged.

We’re starting with ourselves, by offering new recipes each week featuring fresh market ingredients. Mim – our wonderful assistant manager – welcomes new & returning customers to market, hands out recipes, offers advice particular to individual customers’ needs, and even walks new customers around and introducing them to the farmers. We always have an archive of recipes available, along with cookbooks to look up new ideas on the spot.

Beyond this, we conduct recipe swaps, host a potluck or two, bring in guests from the food world, host meal samplings and low-key contests, and use facebook and other social media to encourage dialogue about what people are doing with the food they’re taking home from market. We’ll be creating a monthly flyer that provides advice about how to make the market work best when you’re on a tight budget, and we’ll be providing information and encouraging conversations about the the true value of a diet based on whole foods sourced from local farms.
