Farmers' Market Coop of East Liberty Update

Posted 12/8/2011 9:49pm by Val Kennedy.

Update for Saturday December 10th

We will be open this Saturday, and will have a full contingent of farmers and vendors available. We will also have a few special events this Saturday, please see below for details. 

I have been traveling this week and did not get to speak with all the farmers.  I did hear from Val Kennedy from the J. L. Kennedy Meat Stand with an update of items for Saturday.  So in addition to the items mentioned in yesterday's email update, the Kennedy's will have:

FRESH WHOLE QUAL

FRESH WHOLE RABBITS

Both of these items are unique, so please get to the market to try them out.

I would expect from the other farmers- Kistaco, Greenawalt and Zang's to have similar items as last week.  They will offer a combination of locally grown items other select fruits, vegatables, and flowers.

Special Events

Peter Williams from Kew Park Estate Coffee visit

Peter Williams from Kew Park Estate Coffee will be visiting the market this Saturday.  It has been over a year since Peter has visited, so we are really excited to have him.  Jamaica is a long way off, so we really appreciate when Peter visits.  Peter will be at the market from 7 AM until  about 10 AM.  It is a great opportunity to meet the person that grows the coffee we serve at the market.

I visited Peter on the farm in Jamaica back in April.  I wrote a little story about my visit.  If you are interested, give it a read...

After market, Peter and I plan to meet with a few local coffee roasters so that we can begin roasting the raw (green) beans locally here in Pittsburgh.  We are very excited to reach this milestone.  I will have more details in next weeks update.

TANA ETHIOPIAN CUISINE

Tana is a neighborhood restaurant located in East Liberty at 5929 Baum Blvd., a few doors down from the Carnegie Library.  We invited Tana to come for a few weeks to set up a both to share their delicious Ethiopian cuisine with us.  Restaurant Owner Seifu Haileyesus will be there.  They will be serving food from 9 to 11. 

If you have not tried TANA yet, you need to get over there for a visit.  Our family goes there regularly.  The food is very well prepared and flavorful.
