Holiday Craft & Food Fair
Saturday, December 7, 2013 - 10:00am to 4:00pm Neighborhood Pride Grocery 210 Hancock Street, Ithaca 14850
Craft items made by local vendors will be for sale in the store’s café area and will include handmade jewelry, local photographs, hand-knit sweaters, handmade clothing items, and more. Nutrition educators from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County will share a recipe and samples of a healthy and affordable holiday roasted butternut squash dish. Looking for a healthy, home-made gift idea? See a sample pasta-and-beans “Gift in a Jar” idea from Cooperative Extension, and take home a recipe flier with instructions on how to make several other inexpensive holiday gifts of this kind, including mixes for vegetarian chili, brownies, cookies, cornbread, and teas you can put together at home to give family and friends.
