Local, Seasonal & Organic: Farmers’ Market Shopping & Recipes


With Ebeth Johnson, CNFC & Healthy Eating Specialist at Whole Foods Market P Street

- Saturday, July 21, 10am-noon

Farmers Market Nutrition WorkshopMany of us would like to eat more locally and seasonally, but where to start? This program will begin the morning with a cooking demonstration using seasonal produce available at area farmers' markets. Then we’ll take a field trip to the nearby 14th & U Street Farmers' Market where we will learn to shop for the best products.

Ebeth Johnson earned a BA from New York University in Food and Restaurant Management in conjunction with NYU's innovative program in Food Studies and then studied at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts. She first developed workshops for teens working with eco-chef Bryant Terry and later for adult community leaders at Just Food. Until she moved back to Washington, DC, Ebeth taught workshops regularly for New York Public Library, at various neighborhood community centers, and in NYC public schools.

Ebeth is the host of The Endless Feast, a PBS series celebrating sustainable agriculture, locally grown foods and local chefs. She is currently the Healthy Eating Specialist at the Whole Foods Market on P Street.

This program is open to everyone. Registration is required.
