Market Monthly Partner: Erie Food Policy Advisory Council (FPAC)
This month we are partnering with an organization that cares as much about local food as we do. The mission of the Erie FPAC is to “support Erie’s local food movement through policy, community advocacy, and education.” This shows up as identifying what is successful within our food system already and furthering the work of community organizations such as urban farms, community gardens, grocery stores, local government agencies, and local universities. The organization welcomes new members with an interest in learning about or working in the local food system. If you’re a community member, farmer, business owner, or educator who wants to get involved contact the FPAC via email at email@example.com, message them on IG/FB: @ErieFPAC, or visit their website, eriefarmersmarkets.org.

Recipe Corner: Apple Nachos
The harvest season is ripe with delicious produce! We’re always looking for new takes on fall favorites, and apples are no exception. This week, we bring you a recipe created by staff member Stephanie: apple nachos!
Swap the typical chips for thinly sliced honeycrisp apples sprinkled with a bit of cinnamon. Bake, (directions below), or serve fresh. Top with cheese, (grated? thinly sliced?) or drizzle with a sweet topping such as maple cream, honey, melted chocolate, peanut butter, etc. Whether you go sweet or savory, baked or fresh, these are sure to be perfect for a simple fall get-together or an after work or school snack.
Bake: on baking sheet lined with parchment paper for about 1 hour at 275. degrees (adjust for your oven)
Honeycrisp Apples from Post Apples
Honey from Hogs & Honey or Raintree Farms
Peanut Butter or Tahini from Once Again
Maple Cream from Nova Maple Syrup
