Stay Home and Eat Local for the Holidays

Seasonal Recipes

Edible Santa Barbara is collaborating with the Santa Barbara County Food Action Network along with Santa Barbara County farmers markets and Santa Barbara County Public Health to promote the Stay Home (and Eat Local) for the Holidays Campaign… It provides safe, affordable and healthy options for celebrating the holidays —and supporting our local farmers—during the pandemic.

How It Works

  1. Shop at a participating farmers market during the 2020 holiday season.
  2. Check-in at the farmers market info booth and grab a shopping guide (or download a guide in English or Español) – includes suggested budgets for small gatherings, sample menu, shopping list with easy-to-follow market map, and recipes by Edible Santa Barbara magazine recipes.
  3. Explore the market and discover delicious and affordable in-season produce to showcase on your holiday table.
  4. Ask farmers market staff if you need assistance finding an ingredient or want advice on recipes or substitutions.
  5. Enjoy a locally-sourced holiday meal with your household.

From our table to yours – stay home, be safe, and eat well.
