Farmers Market Coop of East Liberty Update

Posted 7/7/2011 10:01pm by Val Kennedy.
Update for Saturday July 9th

Last Saturday was a busy day at the market with everyone procuring their holiday goodies.  I hope this Saturday will be busy as well as we have a number of new locally grown items.

I spoke with the famers and new items I am hearing about include Roma Beans, Yellow Beans, Green Beans, Cauliflower, and some new Kale varieties (Red Russian and Blue Scotch).  In the fruit department- Berries, Lodi Appples (sour green cooking apples) and Peaches.  Yes you heard it right, local Peaches!  

I did hear that there is a small chance there will be local corn, but no promises there.  I am hearing next week for sure on the corn.  Isn't summer great?

I thought Rhubarb was done, but Greenawalts had some beautiful stuff last week and said they would have more this week.

Locally grown items that will be available this Saturday 
  • Blueberries
  • Red and black rasberries
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Beans (green, yellow and Roma)
  • Yellow squash
  • Zucchini
  • Snow peas
  • Micro greens
  • Green onions
  • Pickles
  • Cucumbers
  • Kale
  • Collards
  • Lettuce (several varieties)
  • Savoy and red cabbage
  • Red beets
  • Onions (several varieties)
  • Rhubarb
Stop by the Kistaco, Zang and Greenawalt booths for the fresh fruit and veggies.

The Kew Park Coffee Bar will have iced coffee, fresh squeezed lemonade and limeade.

PA Made Cheese booth will have a new cheese from Clover Creek Cheese Cellar.
