Farmers Market Coop of East Liberty Update

Posted 8/18/2011 9:54pm by Val Kennedy.
Update for Saturday August 20th

I spoke to a few of the farmers this week.  All I can say is that we are definitely in the prime of summer.  There will be a great variety of locally grown vegetables and summer fruit.

This week we will see lots of varieties of tomatoes including heirlooms.

Peppers are also in their prime and many varieties are available.

There will also be great fruit, especially in the mellon department- honeydew, canteloupes and of course watermellons. The peaches, both local and from Chambersburg, are fantastic.  Please enjoy them while you can.

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

Please also remember to stop by the PA Made Cheese booth for locally made artisinal cheeses, and the California Olive Oil Connection for "local" extra virgin Olive Oil.  These are great accompaniments for the local meat and vegetables available at the market.

For example, every week we get a delivery of fresh cheese curds from Arsenal Cheese.  I would suggest that you prepare them as you would with fresh Mozzarella-  Slice some tomatoes, top with fresh cheese curds and drizzle on the CA Olive oil.  Finish with chopped basil.  Serve it with a steak.  Yum!

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

Please stop by to see us this Saturday.
