A panel of local “market experts” will be on hand, including: Chef Janea Makowski of Carson’s American Bistro who will explain how she creates meals at Carson’s that are centered on market produce. Eileen Spring, who will discuss Food Gatherers’ amazing gleaning efforts, which collect upwards of 1,000 pounds of produce at the conclusion of each Ann Arbor Farmers Market. Amanda Edmonds, who will tell the story of Growing Hope’s fantastic successes with EBT, or food stamp usage, at the Downtown Ypsilanti Farmers Market in 2008.
