Cookbook a recipe for success

The Port Alberni Farmers’ Market has received $5,000 to develop a cookbook that provides tips on preparing healthy meals local food

The Port Alberni Farmers’ Market Association has received $5,000 from the B.C. government’s Buy Local Program to develop a cookbook that will provide tips on how to prepare healthy and nutritious meals from seasonally available local food.

Once it is published, the cookbook will be available at the market that is held every Saturday morning in Port Alberni’s Spirit Square.

The cookbook will showcase locally grown foods that are available at the market during each season, and it will provide the reader with tips and recipes on how to create delicious meals in their own kitchen using local ingredients.

The food and recipes will also reflect the diverse cultures that are such a big part of the Alberni Valley.

In summer months, the market has about 50 vendors offering local fruit and vegetables, beef, lamb, pork, organic chicken and farm fresh eggs. The Port Alberni Farmers’ Market Association is a non-profit society, and they will be celebrating their 20th anniversary in 2014.
