Local Food Notes for Nov. 11

North Atherton Farmers Market will be open this Saturday.

First off, Happy Veteran’s Day, and thank you to all who serve or have served in our nation’s armed forces. Here’s Local Food Notes for this week:

- If you live in Centre County, tonight please leave out a bag with non-perishable, non-expired food items on your front porch for the Boy Scouts’ Scouting for Food: Food Pick Up event. Scouts will be going around picking up the food starting tomorrow, Saturday, at 8:30 a.m. For more information, please go to: http://www.scfoodbank.org/domain/36

- Spring Creek Homesteading will hold a cooking seminar, Cooking One Dish Fall Dinners with Laura Zaino, Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to noon at the Church of the Good Shepherd. Learn how to make chicken fricassee with fall vegetables, butternut squash curry, and more. The class is $20, and includes samples at the end of the class. You can find more information here, and reservations can be made by calling 237-0996.

- Then that afternoon, Spring Creek Homesteading will hold another cooking seminar from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., also at Good Shepherd. This one will focus on savory pies, and also costs $20.

- It’s getting to be that time of year again…Tait Farm will hold their Holiday Open House Saturday and Sunday starting at 10:00 a.m. You will find delicious food, great gift ideas, and more.

- Farmers markets are still going: The North Atherton Farmers Market is open only for two more Saturdays as outdoor farmers market nears its close. The Bellefonte Farmers Market is also open.
