ANABEL'S GROCERY OPENING THIS WEEK SEPTEMBER 15!
Hi friends! We are so excited to finally be back on campus and be able to welcome you all into the store.
Our new hours are:
Wednesday 3-7 PM
Thursday 3-7 PM
Friday 12-5 PM
On Fridays, after 3 PM we will have a discount hour where our leftover produce will be sold at lower prices (but we cannot guarantee it will still be there!).
What to expect from Anabel’s this semester!
We are fully open in person starting on September 15. We will also have an online option available during these times in case you do not feel comfortable shopping in-store yet!
This semester we are selling produce grown by students at Dilmun Hill Organic Farm and the Hydroponics Club. ALL PROCEEDS go to support an anti-racist action grant offered in the spring in collaboration with C4BL to support and empower projects and events by student orgs promoting food and social justice on campus. Check out the produce this week and a delicious recipe from Dilmun Hill using Pattypan Squash!
Here are some fun highlights of the other products we will be selling:
Wide Awake Bakery bread
Cornell Orchards produce and maple syrup
Local meat products
Ithaca Soy Tofu
(along with many of our other staples and bulk products)
Interested in pickling and preserving??? Come join us in store next Sunday 9/19 at 1:00 PM to pickle cucumbers and carrots from Dilmun Hill and talk about preserving! Please bring a mason jar if you are able :)

Food Systems Gathering @ Ithaca Farmers Market
A message from the Tompkins Food Future Team:
The Tompkins Food Future team invites the public to attend a free community event where results of the Tompkins County Food System Baseline Assessment will be shared. The event will be held on Wednesday September 29th at 5:00pm at the Ithaca Farmers' Market, 545 Third Street, in Ithaca.
Organizers will review the results of the baseline assessment so far. This will include challenges, strengths and opportunities in the Tompkins County food system which have been identified via interviews, surveys, focus groups and data collection throughout 2020 and 2021. Tompkins County residents, community members, municipal leaders, and food system stakeholders are invited to eat, connect, offer feedback, and provide input on the development of a Food System Plan for Tompkins County. A light meal will be provided by Head Over Heal and guest chefs. Please let us know you will attend by visiting www.tompkinsfoodfuture.org/rsvp .
Tompkins Food Future is a two-year community planning project led by the Tompkins Food Policy Council, funded by the Tompkins County Legislature and the Community Foundation of Tompkins County, and housed at Cornell Cooperative Extension Tompkins County (CCE-Tompkins). Over the past year, organizers have conducted a baseline assessment of the current local food system. Year two will focus on the development of a long-term community food system action plan focused on a sustainable, equitable, healthy and affordable food system for all Tompkins County residents.
Compost your food scraps with Anabel’s – COMING SOON!
In collaboration with Cornell Compost and the Campus Sustainability Office, Anabel’s is preparing to offer a weekly food scraps drop-off service to the Cornell community! Diverting your food scraps helps reduce food waste and contributes to the creation of a nutrient-rich soil amendment that builds soil health. Keep an eye out for more information in the coming weeks!
In the meantime, feel free to direct any questions about this program, food waste, and/or composting to Emma (erg228) and Cornell Compost at email@example.com.
