We are excited to announce that the Farmer’s Market Basket has a new name… The Traditional Table.

WHY THE TRADITIONAL TABLE?  Because we look at what people have eaten for thousands of years in order to learn what to eat now to get and stay healthy. There is great wisdom in that history and we would be wise to learn from it!

IS THERE ANYTHING DIFFERENT ABOUT THE TRADITIONAL TABLE vs. FARMERS MARKET BASKET?No, The Traditional Table is the same healthy food fundraiser that you have come to know and love! We offer you an opportunity to buy organic & sustainable groceries every month and allows your school to get a portion of the sales!   We offer pastured, organic meats & eggs, sprouted grain breads, maple syrup and raw honey (as available by season), unrefined coconut oil and other healthy foods like line caught tuna, tomatoes in glass jars, gluten free pastas, and more.  We are adding new foods every month so please check back often!

NEW this month – Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar, Ney’s Ground Pork, Gluten Free Crackers, Classic Saltine Crackers… and more!

ORDERING IS NOW OPEN for the January pick up at www.awhatmom.com/woodside. Pick up is in the Woodside gym on Tuesday, January 20The deadline for submitting your orders online is Monday, January 12.
