Synopsis

To Market, to Market by Nikki McClure

Known for art that examines the virtues of community, hard work, and living gently on the planet, Nikki McClure here explores a topic close to her heart: the farmer's market. Alternating between story and fact, this lovingly-crafted picture book follows a mother and son to the weekly market. As they check off items on their shopping list, the reader learns how each particular food was grown or produced - from its earliest stages to how it ended up at the market. Fun, fact-filled, and rendered in Nikki McClure's signature, extraordinary paper-cuts, To Market, to Market is a timely book with cross-over appeal.
