Farmers Market Coop of East Liberty Update

Posted 7/28/2011 9:31pm by Val Kennedy.
Update for Saturday July 30th

I spoke with the farmers this week and asked them what to expect at the market this Saturday  They all said "more of the same."  Yes, more of the same wide selection of delicious locally grown fruits and vegetables. We are entering the prime of the season and the locally grown items are fresh and plentiful.  Tomato's and Corn in particular are now in. Prices are also very reasonable.

We should all start to think about "putting up" various items for the winter.  Last Sunday I made my first batch of tomato puree from a large basket of tomatoes that I purchased at the market.  Delicious!

Speaking of putting things up, our friend Mariam Rubin is at it again with another installment of Miriam's Garden in the Post Gazette. Please check out her article which has a great pickle recipe.

Miriam also mentions a pastry chef Susie Treon who makes desserts for Point and Park Bruge.  Just by chance I was hanging out at Park Bruges in Highland Park last night and had the Apricot Tarte Tatin.  It was to dies for.  I thought I was back in France.

Any ways, back to the putting things up topic.  The farmers at the market can usually take orders for larger quantities of items that you can use for canning.  So please put in your orders for baskets, bushels, or truck loads of veggies.  

You can stop by the Greenawalts, Kennedy, Kistaco or Zang booths.

Please stop by to see us this Saturday.
