Mary Claire Draeger DeSotoDraeger?s Market Teams with Local Organic Farmers and Experts to Host
?Healing Power? Event
SAN MATEO, Calif., March 25, 2010 ? Draeger?s Market, an award-winning, family-owned gourmet market, will host a free, informational event for those looking to learn more about organic fruits and vegetables. The event titled ?The Healing Power of Organic Fruits and Vegetables,? will take place on Sunday, April 11, 2010, from 10 a.m. ? 4 p.m., at its San Mateo store (222 E. 4th Ave., San Mateo, CA).
The event will feature two panel-style discussions in the upstairs cooking school. The first discussion will provide a forum for local organic farmers to discuss their methods of farming and educate shoppers on the nutritional value differences between organic and conventional produce, among many other topics. Farmers will also offer fruit and vegetable samples from their demo tables located throughout the produce department. The event is free and open to the public.
Participating farms include: Baia Nicchia, Tomatero, Jelich Ranch, Capay, Lakeside Organic, Capay Farms and Earl?s Organic Produce
A second panel-style discussion will feature nutrition experts. Topics will include: why organic is better, studies showing more nutrients and vitamins in organic versus conventional produce; the role of folic acid from organic vegetables and cancer prevention; and enzymes and compounds in fruits and veggies that disable and eliminate carcinogens.
Two PowerPoint presentations: one about Jelich Ranch, presented by farmer, Terence Welch, and the other will focus on tomatoes and microgreens from Baia Nicchia, presented by farmer Fred Hempel. They will be held at 12 p.m. in the Private Dining Room, adjacent to the HOME Department upstairs.
Due to limited space, advanced reservations are required for the two panel style discussions, which will take place at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. in Draeger?s Cooking School. For more information or to sign up to attend the discussions, please visit http://meetup.com/Gluten-Free-Club
