Lebanon Farmers Market

The Market Lady, Lane McConnell, will visit the Aurora Farmers Market in Aurora, Mo., Wednesday, June 29.  The Market Lady and video crew will begin at 8 a.m., with one cooking demonstration incorporating products from the market and will be interviewing producers and consumers for various other segments.

The purpose of The Market Lady Project is to educate consumers about eating healthy, locally produced food found at their farmers market.

“I strive to inform folks on the ease of preparing homemade meals for their families through shopping at the market,” said McConnell.  “Consumers can log on to our website or Facebook page to view short videos of interviews with the farmers that grow our food, topics such as food safety, organic, naturally grown and learn how to cook simple meals.”

“People need good news about local produce and idea’s on fixing it,” said Market Master Trish Matheny. “Home grown, home town.”

Below is the recipe that The Market Lady will be preparing at the market. Be sure and come out to the Aurora Farmers Market on June 29 to meet the Market Lady and video producer and Aurora native Kelsie Young.

I love when I have others pass on recipes to me to try. I received this recipe from a new seed company in the Ozarks, White Harvest Seed Co. from Hartville, Mo.  The family-owned business specializes in heirloom seeds and works with folks on ways to build their own backyard gardens.

This recipe is not only healthy, but packed full of flavor!  I hope you enjoy this fresh spaghetti salad.
