Earlier this summer KRL made several trips to the Reedley Farmers Market taking place at Reedley College and made several delicious discoveries—from food trucks covered in our Great Food Search column, to great local coffee and bakeries! My personal favorite finds were Graceful Bakes, Zolú Café, and Butter Me Up Bakery! This week we are interviewing the owner of Butter Me Up, Leslie Valadez from Dinuba, California.

Healthy Eating in Fresno

by Tom Sims

You can eat healthy food in the Fresno/Clovis area and it is easier than you think.
If you want to go to the bottom line of healthy eating, get down to earth. I mean real earth, dirt. Compost organic material and cultivate your own soil. Buy good seeds, plant and grow your own organic garden. If you have a yard, you can have a mini-farm. If you have a patio, you can have some plants.

It started with a couple of farmers and the fruit of their harvest, searching for opportunities to sell fresh produce to Sanger ‘locals.’ Thirteen years later, Sanger has reaped the harvest of much, much more.

Reedley Farmers’ Market

by Jim Bulls

Years ago, at the height of the family farm, the farmer planned his chores around the weekly trip to town on Friday night. This is when the family would do the week’s shopping and catch up on the local gossip. Stores were generally open from 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and catered to the farmer’s needs. In the mid-1960s, as the family farm became less and less profitable, the stores stopped staying open late and many closed or left town. Now the tide has turned.
