Add some delicious beef or chicken from our local meat farmers and voila – you’ve got a delicious pot of hot soup to warm you up. Local fresh food like broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, and apples were at the market too, along with radishes, turnips, and winter greens. We could go on and on, but the list of fresh winter veggies is pretty long. The point is, even though the weather can turn nasty and cold, you’ll always find local fresh food to create a warm tasty meal all winter long at the FFM.
