Sweet, crunchy, Oh-so-refreshing cucumbers are our featured guests this Sun on the Little Locavore program at the Mpls Farmers’ Mkt. You can try samples of different kinds of cukes, and also play a couple fun games!
Fun fact: Did you know that ancient desert dwellers revered the cucumber because its high water content helped them survive desert crossings?
Eating refreshing cukes helps us get the water that our bodies need, especially in the hot summer. Most people like to eat them raw. You can even try making cucumber-ade, with mint and a tiny bit of sugar.
More comin’ up on Sunday!
