VIDEO: A Tour Through the Farmer's Market: How to Buy More and Spend Less

Elise McDonough, author of the new Chelsea Green Guide Sustainable Food: How to Buy Right and Spend Less, takes a leisurely stroll through the Union Square farmers market in New York and shows us how to make sustainable, healthy, and delicious food choices by picking produce that’s seasonal and local.


Elise then whisks us away to her rooftop garden where she gathers herbs for her homemade panzanella, an Italian bread salad that, I have to say, looks mighty tasty from where I’m sitting.
