OCTOBER 2ND DIY corn hole: Fall is the perfect time to be out-


VendorProfile Autumn Michelle Larson-Sadler’s


booth, Conscious Cookery, is thrilled to welcome the fall season. Her stock of grains and beans greatly expands with the season as the farmers she works with have new products to share. As the days shorten and cool down, people begin to frequent her booth as they prepare more comfort type foods like soups and chili’s. One of her favorite recipes


is the Three Sisters Stew. It’s a North American tradition used to celebrate the harvest and sustain- able agriculture. She uses borlatti beans, giant white corn pesole, green beans, and squash, either butternut or a pumpkin; all flavors that complement one another. Michelle’s love for food transcends just the fall season however. She has been in the food industry since 1985 and has a post baccalaureate in food science that landed her work- ing in a food conglomerate for


four years. Once she realized that quantity, not quality, ruled with her previous employer, she opted out. Food traditions and genealogy had always been a hobby which led her to start her business, Conscious Cookery. She finds the most joy in the


relationships she has fostered and built the last nine years with both the farmers she works with and her customers. Larson-Sadler impresses that we must truly understand that food is not just about eating - it’s the livelihood of the farmer, and their commitment to their product, and our connec- tion to that product. With her brimming com- mitment to quality, you can find Michelle weekly at the Hillcrest Farmer’s Market (behind Jack- ie’s Jams, near the food court) selling the grains and beans that are available this season – just in time for that perfect Three Sisters Stew.
