Why are foodways important?

Foodways is the study of what people eat and why. Why we procure, prepare and serve the food we do has cultural, sociological, geographical, financial and political influences.

 

 

Why is recognition of diverse foodways valuable?

Preserving our past and present for the future by research, documentation and oral histories. It is culinary anthropology on the hoof, paw, root and leaf.

Maxwell Street Market moved in 2008 for the third time in its history.  Bruce Kraig will provide the market's history.  David Hammond will talk about Maxwell Street today.  Together they will comment on the Mexican offerings as we walk about and eat our way through the market.  Bring some money for food; ten dollars will easily cover food costs for one.   We will be walking with few places to sit. Please wear comfortable clothing and shoes
