The Harvest Kitchen
Through The Harvest Kitchen program, The Wild Ramp utilizes excess seasonal ingredients from our market producers to create our own branded assortment of prepared food and value-added products — think freezer meals, side dishes, desserts, soups, broths, snacks and baked goods.
Since The Harvest Kitchen began in 2019, The Wild Ramp has used over 3,500 POUNDS of surplus product. It’s a win-win all around: less food is wasted, which benefits both our producers and our market, and our customers are able to try new, convenient recipes on a regular basis.
In 2022, 1,042 lbs of rescued produce from local farmers was used by the Harvest Kitchen to manufacture value-added products for the market floor.
We understand that cooking takes time and practiced skill. We want our community members to be confident in their ability to cook with local and regional ingredients at home. The Harvest Kitchen will be hosting cooking classes, tasting events, and health education workshops as a way to build that confidence and to enable people to make healthier choices for their families.
