Green Authors at Grass Valley Farmers Market

Several Local authors will gather at The Book Seller (my favorite book store) during the weekly farmers market in downtown Grass Valley on Thursday, June 14, 2012 from 6-8 pm.

Two of the books are unfamiliar to me.  Molly’s Organic Farm is  a children’s book by Carol Malnor and Trina Hunner and Living Wild by Alicia Funk and Karin Kaufman is about cooking and healing with native plants of our Sierra Foothills.

But the one I’m going to add to my collection is The Art of Real Food by Joanne Neft and Laura Kenny.  This is a follow up to their popular first book, Placer County Real Food from Farmers Markets published in 2010.  The Art promises 52 weeks of recipes tuned to the seasonal harvests from this area.  I’ve seen the display copy, and it is handsome.

If you’ve never been, the Thursday night farmers market in Grass Valley is a hoot.  Live music, lot’s of stuff to buy, and you can eat supper from the local vendors as you walk around, shopping and gawking.  The organizers close about 8 blocks of downtown for the big weekly party.
