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.
