Recipes for the Market

Baltimore-based artist Nikita Yogaraj custom-designed linocut blocks that depicted different images from the farmers market--from baby strollers to fresh collard greens to a map of the Black Butterfly/White L to highlight the unequal access to fresh food in Baltimore City. Guided by Nikita, community members present at the Story Market: Tastes of Home printed these blocks to create the art piece, "Recipes for the Market." The art piece was auctioned off and proceeds donated to Black Yield Institute, one of the participating vendors for Tastes of Home.

Lunch Box Love Notes

Lunch Box Love Notes was originally developed as a story stand for the Story Market: Tastes of Home. Miranda Betts, Owner/Chef of Farm to Face Café, and I bonded over the love notes my mom used to leave in my lunch box, and the ones she left in her daughter's lunch box. At Farm to Face, "love" is the secret ingredient. There's a heart carved into every fresh batch of falafel! Lunch Box Love Notes has now become a staple every Saturday and Sunday at the 32nd Street and JFX Farmers Markets--a love note with your falafel. How much better can it get?
