June 15th Market News

Celebrating dads in your life this Sunday? Head to the market to pick up both gifts and grilling provisions. Neversink Spirits makes their first visit of the season with locally distilled gin—a perfect present for the locavore mixologist.

Firing up the grill? There are so many meat and meatless options at the market... For something unexpected try Wil Hi Farm's lamb chops using this simple grilled rosemary lamb chop recipe from Epicurious. Or pick up some duck breast from Hudson Valley Duck Farm. Catering to a vegetarian/vegan crowd? Head to Harlem Valley Homestead for local mushrooms and Concklin's for the last of the asparagus.

Getting hungry at the market? Pay a visit to Asian Farmer Dumpling for pork, chicken, of vegetable dumplings made with fresh and local ingredients. You can also pick up frozen ones for party apps or a quick dinner.

Tomorrow is "gleaning day" when shoppers purchase fresh food for the Hastings Food Pantry. If you prefer to give cash, we will use it to buy meat to donate. Meanwhile, we are still taking up an annual collection to offset the cost of eggs and apples that the Farmers' Market purchases each week and donates to the Pantry. Thank you for your generosity!

See you at the Market!
