Food For Thought

One of the key importances UFCU focuses on when putting on year round Farmers Markets is practicing food sustainability. According to the Yale Sustainable Food Project, sustainable food is considered to be the following:

• produced by farmers and ranchers who care for the health of their animals and the land

• sourced locally and seasonally directly from family farms or farm cooperatives

• cooked from scratch to minimize processed ingredients

• good for the environment, the people who grow it, and the people who eat it

All of the vendors at both the Winter Market and Downtown Farmers Market are within a 250 mile radius, ensuring food sustainable purchases. Reap the many benefits of shopping local when you join us at the Winter Market this Saturday from 10AM - 2PM at the Historic Rio Grande Depot.
