Today at Concordia College, producers who have been growing veggies all summer long in their gardens, rolled out some of the last of their crop. They hosted what is called "the 100-mile thanksgiving."

An effort to make a Thanksgiving meal using only ingredients found within a 100-mile radius of your home. Today, pumpkins, squash, carrots, spuds, even fennel made the farmers market list.

β€œThe 100 mile Thanksgiving, there is a lot of stuff that is grown around the radius. It is a good deal that the word is out that this is possible.”

Customers coming to the farmers market at Concordia were also able to reserve a free range turkey delivered fresh to your home a day before Thanksgiving.
