Happy Labor Day to our Frostville family and friends!

We want to especially thank all of our vendors for their hard work throughout the Market season.  You make it possible for our community to access fresh, in-season, sustainable, clean, and local goods.  Our bodies thank you, and our planet thanks you!

To highlight the importance of shopping with our local vendors and knowing where your food (and other products) comes from, we’d like to recommend a book for you to check out.  We’ll also be posting some pictures from our vendors in action, so you can actually see those tomatoes you just bought growing in the way they were meant to… not on an industrial farm hundreds or thousands of miles away.

We hope you’ll check it out to see why your purchases at Frostville are valuable in so many ways!  Feel free to recommend your favorites too!

Omnivore's Dilemma


August 28, 2007
by Michael Pollan
“Thoughtful, engrossing … You’re not likely to get a better explanation of exactly where your food comes from.”
-The New York Times Book Review
“An eater’s manifesto … [Pollan’s] cause is just, his thinking is clear, and his writing is compelling. Be careful of your dinner!”
-The Washington Post
“Outstanding… a wide-ranging invitation to think through the moral ramifications of our eating habits.”
–The New Yorker 

“If you ever thought ‘what’s for dinner’ was a simple question, you’ll change your mind after reading Pollan’s searing indictment of today’s food industry-and his glimpse of some inspiring alternatives…. I just loved this book so much I didn’t want it to end.”
-The Seattle Times
