Sohha Yogurt is BACK!

dear shoppers, I can almost feel the collective smile spreading across the River towns. It's been a long wait as John and Angela have moved their pasteurization plant from Brooklyn to the Bronx, but now, they are that much closer to your kitchen.

In honor of their return, I give you a couple of recipes that call for yogurt as a main ingredient - not just a dollop.

Yogurt, and this yogurt especially, is definitely not just for breakfast anymore.

image-50For starters, this ricotta, yogurt, tomato and basil pizza from Food52 (and since the slightly colder temps mean Gary from Wiltbank Farms is back with his fabulous fungi - I would definitely throw some cooked shiitake atop this pizza for good measure).

And this gorgeous Spinach, Chive, and Yogurt Soup with Grilled Scallions from Saveur Magazine.

Plan your market shopping accordingly: no doubt there will be a long line of devotees at the Sohha tent.

Please welcome some guest vendors this week - Farm EATS selling grass-fed beef exclusively, and Bishop Farm selling pork, chicken and eggs - all raised in the without hormones, GMOs or antibiotics just outside of Syracuse. Yes, they will have eggs!

Also: I am very happy to welcome a new vendor Asian Farmer Dumplings who uses ALL local ingredients for his fillings, from pork and beef  to carrots and cabbage.

Need a little inspiration as we transition into fall at the market? Local food blogger & health coach Coco Zordan ( will be doing a cooking demo using what's available at the market now.

Make sure to stop by the Historical Society table near the steps of Village Hall. Some folks from RiverARTS will also be there selling tickets for their annual WELCOME PARTY & FUNDRAISER happening THIS SUNDAY from 3 to 5 p.m. Always a lovely event, don't miss it!

KIDS' YOGA with Michele runs from 9:45 to 10:45 tomorrow....

Music this week comes from Irvington: Please welcome Divining Rod.

And this just in - La Petite Occasion will be selling CARAMEL apples as we dip into fall.

See you at the market!
