Epicurious.com Returns to Farmers’ Markets on Nationwide Greenmarket Tour

July 20, 2009

NEW YORK, July 20 /PRNewswire/ — For the second year in a row, Epicurious.com is hitting the road to visit farmers’ markets across the United States, offering seasonal recipes, advice from editors on using local ingredients, as well as free tote bags and gifts. July 18th marked the first stop on Epicurious.com’s greenmarket tour.

In seven of the country’s major cities, Epicurious.com editors will have a booth at select farmers’ markets, giving away recipes printed on reusable cards, based on ingredients that are currently in season at that market, such as green beans and summer squash in Phoenix, apricots and avocados in San Diego, and blueberries and tomatoes in Washington, DC. To discover what’s available in your local farmers’ market at any time of the year, consult Epicurious.com’s interactive Seasonal Ingredient Map: http://www.epicurious.com/articlesguides/seasonalcooking/farmtotable/seasonalingredientmap.

Visitors to Epi’s booth will receive greenmarket shopping and cooking tips from Epicurious.com editors, Epicurious and McCormick Gourmet recipe cards, and Newman’s Own microwave popcorn, within an eco-friendly tote bag, while supplies last.

“It’s more important than ever to use local ingredients, both to the planet, and to farmers in your area,” according to Tanya Steel, editor in chief of Epicurious.com. “We are touring the country’s greenmarkets again this year, in the hopes that we can offer tips, recipes, and advice to home cooks looking to create delicious and affordable meals using locally-grown foods.”
