Promoter of NC farm produce finds home on YouTube
KANNAPOLIS, N.C. — North Carolina’s produce farmers have a friend on YouTube.
The new director for the North Carolina Cooperative Extension in Rockingham County is featured in a series of videos explaining the seasons for fresh fruits and vegetables, and what cooks can do with the food available at farmer’s markets across the state.
Brenda Sutton calls herself the Produce Lady, and she’s visiting the North Carolina Research Campus Farmers Market in Kannapolis on Thursday.
Her tips for finding and cooking eggplant, okra and greens are posted to YouTube. The Produce Lady debuted statewide on UNC-TV this spring.
Sutton visits the farmers market in Reidsville on Saturday, then others in Eden, Davidson, Kannapolis and Raleigh throughout the summer.
