As the fall semester begins for our local college students, we want to highlight all the easy, nutritious foods that are available at the market that could be kept in a dorm or off-campus housing. We have focused on affordable and fast options that are easy for the student on-the-go to prepare and eat.
Essential Market Shopping List:
Leafy greens – lettuce, kale, spinach
Seasonal Berries – Strawberries, Blueberries
Also check out our Taste NY store for pantry staples like pasta sauce, peanut butter, yogurt, and nuts.
Combine the above items with other essentials that you pick up at the grocery store like rice, quinoa/other grains, beans, tortillas/wraps, soups/Ramen, and oils/vinegars for easy meals.
For example, take a simple packet of Ramen and add in onion, carrots, and broccoli. One almost done cooking, crack an egg in the pan and cover with the noodles. Top with Sriracha. Even though I have been out of college for many years, this meal still hits the spot!
Be sure to check out the market for yourself and discover all of the fresh, seasonal foods that our region has to offer!
