#ygkChallenge: Local Thanksgiving

ygkchallenge, farmers' market, local, Thanksgiving, Kingston, OntarioThe #ygkchallenge is an ongoing series where we dare you to be different, resolve to be better, and or do something awesome in support of our beloved community. Each week, Kingstonist establishes a new, ambitious or quirky goal, encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston (and the world) a slightly better place to live, work and play.

This week’s #ygkchallenge encourages you to:

Keep your Thanksgiving local. This weekend marks one of my personal favourite holidays. One of the things I love so much about Thanksgiving is the plethora of incredible produce that is available to us right in our own backyard (in some cases, literally!) I love heading down to the market on the Saturday of this long weekend to pick up fresh veggies and homemade desserts to share with my family. While most of us have already ordered our bird, there are a lot of choices for buying a turkey raised on a farm just a few kilometres away. The Market Square Farmers’ Market is on today and Saturday and you can head over to The Memorial Centre Market on Sunday. See how much local deliciousness you can include in your Thanksgiving meal this year. Happy long weekend, ygk!
