In the ongoing effort to connect the food dots, Lorrie Dahlen, manager of the Marshfield Farmers Market, recently brought together students, vendors, and the community to create and sell a “Collaboration Breakfast Sandwich.” Made and sold by students from Duxbury High School’s Family & Consumer Science Program at the Farmers’ Market, the ingredients are sourced from Brown Boar Farm (Canadian bacon), Honey I’m Home (cheddar biscuits), Donde Thiago (arepa, a naturally gluten-free bread option), Kiss Flower Farm (eggs), and DaSilva Farm (eggs).
The proceeds are used to fund free children’s activities at the farmers’ market programs, and consumers receive a reasonably priced, locally sourced, freshly made sandwich. In addition, the high school students receive volunteer credit hours for their participation. Citing customers wishes from a recent survey for more prepared foods–in addition to items to bring home–Lorrie created an indoor cafe/food court area where market-goers can sit and enjoy prepared foods or hot coffee while listening to the band and keeping an eye on the kids, or playing family games like dominoes.
