Tara Hamilton and Naomi Hendrix, two of the founders of Whole Farms Market in Fresno, CA, visited Baker: In the City (http://www.centralvalleytalk.com/BakerIntheCity.html) Dec. 21 to discuss their approach to healthy eating and the importance of farm fresh and local organic produce and offer recipes for viewers of the popular Internet television station.
"We want to provide people with healthier food options."
Tara Hamilton, Owner, Whole Farms Market
Hamilton demonstrated how to make snow balls, a sweet dish made of raisins, almonds, lemon juice and coconut. Hendrix offered her version of a kale salad.

Whole Farms Market also offers Fresno's only organic raw food café, called Revive, providing organic raw food entrées and fresh pressed juices and desserts that are changed daily. The café serves only vegan raw food. All ingredients are organically grown and all-natural.
"We want to provide people with healthier food options," said Hamilton, whose store carries many products that are organically grown on her farm at the nearby town of Kerman. Other products are sourced and provided from local growers and producers.
