Baaaaa. We have a visiting vendor selling LAMB and WOOL.
dear shoppers, Wil-Hi Farm is located in Upper Red Hook--just north of Rhinebeck. It's home to about 100 sheep, Della, a dairy goat and Ernie, a guard donkey.
They raise Rambouillets, Natural Colored Sheep and Suffolks.
"We strive to breed sheep that are complete packages, a pleasure to raise and beautiful to look at," says farmer Heidi Simmons.
(We own merino wool to Rambouillets like these)
They will be bringing various cuts of lamb (lamb chorizo, leg of lamb, lamb stew etc.) as well as skeins of 100% wool yarn, goat's milk soap, dryer balls and felting kits.
Have they come to the right town or what?
Please show them how much we love our meat -- and our crafts.
In other exciting news, the knife sharpener has a free Saturday and has decided to spend it with us. So, if you forgot your knives last month you get two chances to bring them to market this month (or forget them again). Remember a big bird requiring deft carving is in your future. What condition is your carving knife in?
Also, the Champagne Kombucha folks who normally come on the second Saturday of the month are coming THIS week instead because their son is in a wrestling tournament next weekend.
LOVE that we can be flexible about such things.
Larchmont Charcuterie, Peanut Principle and Hudson River Apiaries (the honey people!) are all in the rotation tomorrow.
Unfortunately Painted Goat Farm, won't make it due to a product shortage...
They hope to be back next week!
Christiane's Backstube is back with their amazing desserts. This time, Christiane herself will be selling her Linzer tortes and streudel. It's her first time at the market.
Remember to park at the train station and to take advantage of our fantastic veggie valet service which allows you to leave your groceries with us while you shop downtown.
Our handy market cards with all the winter market dates and times will be available NEXT week at the market tent.
See you at the market!
