Please join us as author Janine MacLachlan discusses her new book titled Farmers’ Markets of the Heartland.
Program Location: Reception Hall, lower level
In this splendidly illustrated book, food writer and self-described farm groupie MacLachlan embarks on a tour of seasonal markets and farm stands throughout the Midwest. Sampling local flavors from Illinois and beyond, she met the growers, producers and artisans who bring fresh, nourishing food to local communities. MacLachlan also tantalizes with special recipes from farm-friendly chefs and dazzling photos.
