Local Roots combines a market where shoppers can conveniently browse a variety of products from over 100 local producers and a cafe that makes fresh, healthy, seasonal dishes from local ingredients.
In addition, Local Roots serves as an informal community center, hosting meetings of local organizations and presenting classes on topics such as gardening, healthy cooking, food preservation, crafts, and issues relating to sustainability.
Wooster’s Madhavi (Maddy) Vaidya has written a cookbook based on the plant-based diet recommended by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. Dr. Esselstyn, a renowned surgeon and researcher at the Cleveland Clinic, wrote a book called ‘Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease” and advocates a diet with no meat, no dairy, and totally oil-free cooking. There is a growing interest in this type of eating, particularly for people with heart disease.
Meet Maddy at Local Roots Saturday, 3/8 from 1-2 pm to sample her cooking, learn about her upcoming book and following a plant-based diet!
