The Food Project’s November Market took place in our Dudley Greenhouse in Roxbury on Tuesday, November 22. From 4 to 7 p.m., friends and neighbors came to the greenhouse to buy a variety of root vegetables and greens to enrich their Thanksgiving dinners and to store away for colder days.

Along with the last field vegetables of the year, TFP youth handed out samples of their own Butternut squash soup with croutons, prepared specially for the event. While adults shopped for vegetables, other TFP youth interns led children in special activities around the greenhouse, such as a vegetable scavenger hunt, a potato digging bonanza, herb taste testing, and a lively game of pin the tail feather on the turkey.

Meanwhile, Greenhouse Manager Danielle Andrews hosted tours of the enterprise and community bays of the greenhouse. Guests ogled the spinach and salad greens bound for local restaurants growing in our enterprise bay and admired the diverse array of vegetables grown by our local partners in our community bay.

We are excited to celebrate the end of a bountiful harvest at The Food Project’s farms in Boston, Lincoln, Lynn, and Beverly this fall! Throughout the upcoming winter, we will be working with community partners to host gardening and cooking workshops in the Dudley Greenhouse.  For more information about these workshops, please contact Danielle Andrews at [email protected].
