Dine In, Carry Out or Cater

 

With just five workdays each week, where do you decide to grab noontime eats? You many be familiar with Freshbox for the great catering menu. How can you pass up those yumilicious chocolate-dipped Oreos tucked inside your lunch box next to the red caprese sandwich or Thai chicken wrap? But now you can get the same delicious food, and support a great social cause, at the Freshbox Cafe.

 

Click here to read more. One Right Now Downtown reader will even get lunch compliments of Freshbox.

Pearl Market

 

Last week, Pearl Market Manager Adam Schroeder participated in the Ohio Farm Bureau's Young Ag Professionals Leadership Experience in Washington D.C., meeting with congressional aides, the American Farm Bureau Federation, The European Union Embassy, the USDA and more. Many participants were interested in learning more about Pearl Market's 1:1 EBT Matching Program (made possible by the Puffin Foundation West) and its participation in the Veggie SNAPS program.

 

"My biggest take-away from the trip was what a major role Ohio plays in not only the United States' agriculture footprint, but also in the world's agriculture footprint," said Schroeder.

The Market is chocked full of delicious produce, including fall favorites. Stop by the Pearl Market Booth and enter to win a copy of Cooking from the Farmers' Market. See you in the Market.
