It's never easy to whip up a fresh and healthy meal all while trying to save some money, but there are some good solutions.
The Boston Public Market opened over the summer on Hanover Street at Haymarket Station and for the past few months people have been getting a free farm-to-table education.
The market is open year-round and features local vendors and fresh local food.
Tucked away in the corner is the kitchen, where you can take free classes to learn about local food production and healthy eating.
The classes range from lectures to hand-on teaching.
