Visit a Farmer's Market
$5 - $10
Food science is a little new niche within the STEM world. Think about it. How do you think the mint gets into the peppermint gum or the strawberry gets into the strawberry ice cream. It's never too early to start exploring culinary science...by way of a local farmers market. Be sure to ask the vendors lots of questions about their process for getting the food from the field to the farmer's market.
Farmer's markets are everywhere in the area. Check out the map and the related web links to find one near you.
