"Buying from farmers markets not only promotes edible education for children and adults alike, but also stabilizes a local economy and introduces people to a variety of culinary cultures. With delicious recipes and charming stories, the Ithaca Farmers Market Cookbook demonstrates the importance of fresh, seasonal and sustainable ingredients."
— Alice Waters, Chef and Slow Food Activist
"Here's a recipe almost forty years in the making: food that's simple, direct, and filled with a sense of place. The Ithaca Farmers Market Cookbook is as joyous as the community behind it."
— Dan Barber, Executive Chef, Blue Hill at Stone Barns
"There’s a huge range of recipes in the Ithaca Farmers Market Cookbook, all designed to maximize the flavors of fresh, locally grown ingredients. Sometimes recipes are from the growers and sometimes Turback pairs the producer with a local chef who provides a recipe. There has long been a tradition of local communities, schools, churches, and women’s clubs publishing small cookbooks to which everyone contributes. We love the spirit of those cookbooks, but the recipes are often disappointing. This cookbook, which 'celebrates the food, the people and the mission of America’s most progressive farmers market,' is crammed full of quite sophisticated recipes. We don’t see a blooper in the group."
— Susan Harville, Moosewood Restaurant Collective
