The Educated Eater: What's Behind the Label?
Our decisions about the food we purchase are governed by a variety of factors: taste, price, ethics, safety, and more. What do labels-like 'organic,' 'natural' and 'hormone free' - communicate about how that food is raised or grown, and how do farmers determine which, if any, certifications are right for them? This Greenmarket Educated Eater panel discussion will delve into the questions of what certifications mean for small family farms. Greenmarket producers will expound on popular certifications such as Certified Naturally Grown and organic, why they did or did not choose to become certified, and how it affects their growing practices.
This event is free and open to the public, but RSVP is required.
