Where do you shop for Thanksgiving dinner? Fantasy food haul from 21 Acres Farm Market, Woodinville, WA

Where do you shop for Thanksgiving dinner? Fantasy food haul from 21 Acres Farm Market, Woodinville, WA

 

There’s a lot to love about Thanksgiving food. I read a lot of blogs and magazines and as far as I’ve seen, nobody has been able to alter the Thanksgiving menu to make it anything other than a homey, hearty, traditional feast. It’s about family, being thankful, and celebrating food.

The meal is at our house this year – just my husband, our twins, and my parents. They always bring a lot of food, but I want to make something special that’s more of a fresh take on a Thanksgiving classic. I’ve been enjoying farmers’ markets and local food producers and I want to carry that interest into Thanksgiving.

I got some great inspiration on my recent visit to 21 Acres Farm in Woodinville, Washington. 21 Acres is a sustainable food community center with a farm market, commercial kitchen, meeting rooms, an organic farm, and educational programs. It’s the kind of place that encourages you to reconnect with food in a really meaningful way, and to see how beautiful it can be when you slow down to look at it.

So if I had a fantasy Thanksgiving food haul, it would come from a place like 21 Acres. My family’s table is far from perfect, which is why I admire people who work with something as simple and as important as good, local food. Everyone I met at 21 Acres was kind, welcoming, and gracious. I had a delicious fried green tomato sandwich and a gluten-free snickerdoodle for lunch. It was a fun mom’s break.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope the food is wonderful and you enjoy it with family and friends.
