Pardon our construction!
dear shoppers, In case you haven't heard, our already beautiful Library is expanding. For the next few weeks this will impact the layout of our market. You will find cement diggers, for example, where the Orchards of Concklin usually sets up shop. But, worry not, they will be right across the way, right next to the Morgiewicz Produce tents with their usual array of peaches, nectarines, cherries, apples and, of course, cider donuts.
Please be patient while we muddle through and if you can't find a vendor, please stop by the market tent and ask. Our dedicated volunteers are always eager to help - and sell you a t-shirt.
A fresh batch of oatmeal/grey t-shirts is in and in most sizes, too!
We've also ordered more of the denim-blue shirts, due to their overwhelming popularity.
The Farmer's Market tees make great gifts for visiting friends or friends you will be visiting this summer. They are also a fund-raiser for the market so it's a win-win.
There will be plenty of other great things at the market this week - Rich Brownies is here with a dizzying array of new flavors; Roaming Angus is finally fully stocked on chicken, beef and pork (lamb will return in September). Demetra of Kontoulis Oil is here, in case you are running low on her golden nectar. Hudson Valley Duck has their lovely smoked duck breast which is so delicious sliced over baby greens from Taliaferro Farm.
I've been living on their pre-washed baby kale this summer - in juices, salads and wilted.
And have you tried their haricots verts? Reason enough to make a salade Nicoise.
With all the heirloom tomatoes at market, you might be tempted to make gazpacho. If so, here's a link to an interesting collection of gazpacho recipes from Food & Wine including one from Daniel Humm (Eleven Madison Park) that is made with cherries (make it now!) instead of tomatoes and one that is made with cauliflower, cucumber and almonds (which you can find at Tierra Farm).
See you at the market!
