'Green Saturday' Promotes Farmer's Markets

Oct 24, 2013

You've probably heard of Black Friday - but what about "Green Saturday"? No? Well that's a day the Illinois Stewardship Alliance and genHkids, non-profits aimed at promoting agriculture, nutrition and the buy-local movement, have recently come up with. And this Saturday marks the kick-off - with the group urging Illinois residents to support the state's farmers by purchasing their produce. Saturday also marks the last farmer's market in downtown Springfield of the season. We recently spoke with Drew Thomason to find out more about it.
