Farmer's Market Coop of East Liberty Update

Posted 1/26/2012 7:32pm by Val Kennedy.

Update for Saturday January 28th

Thanks to all those who came out last Saturday on a morning that was cold and snowy.  We had a nice steady crowd.  It's days like this that makes me realize how loyal and dedicated our customer base is.

Well the market is open again this Saturday, and all four of the farmer stands will be open and fully stocked- Kistaco Farm, J.L Kennedy Meat Stand, Zang's and Greenawalts.  Here is a summary of what will be available, along with a few notes  and suggestions from me: 

  • J. L. Kennedy Meat Stand- Val just let me know that they will again offer chicken backs this Saturday, Jan. 28 th for those customers who couldn't get them last week. This will be last offering until end of February. Orders can be placed by phone Friday or chance item availability Sat. morning.  The number at the farm is 724-898-2316.
  • Kistaco Farm continues to have locally raised apples and apple cider.  Fall apples in January- where else can you find that!
  • Zang's will have potted tulips and hyacinths
  • Greenawalt's has some beautiful locally grown turnips that were recently dug.  Of course fresh local eggs will be available.

There will be a variety of fruits and vegetables available throughout the market from Zang's, Greenawalt and Kistaco stands.  Some are still locally grown items and some are "imported."  If you are interested in locally grown, please feel free to ask the farmers which items are local.

  • Potatoes (still locally grown at Greenawalt's)
  • Mushrooms
  • Squash
  • Celery
  • Carrots and other root vegetables
  • Onions
  • Cauliflower
  • Tomatoes (Zang's should have several nice varieties)
  • Shallots
  • Peppers- sweet and hot
  • Garlic
  • Lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Green beans
  • Broccoli
  • Florida Citrus such as lemons, oranges and tangerines
  • Grapes
  • Other fruit such as berries

Other vendors in the market will also be open.  So keep in mind that this includes many locally made offerings such as hummus from the Greek Gourmet, fresh baked items from Rebecca Plum, and fresh made donuts from Better-Made Donuts.  Also, pasta from Fontana Pasta, and bread from Wood Street Bakery.  Many Amish made prepared items are available at Greenawalts.  Kistaco sells dried soup mixes which are easy to make and great during the cold weather months.

Kew Park Coffee Bar

This week we will contiue to offer a dark/medium bean roasted by LaPrima, and a medium bean roasted by Commonplace Roasters.


Florida citrus is in its prime so we have beautiful oranges, nectarines and grapfruits for making fresh squeezed juice.

Since the weather has turned cold, we will have hot chocolate- back by popular demand!

PA Made Cheese

Recent arrivals include:

Luddington Lace Swiss from God's Country in Potter County

Fresh curds from Arsenal Cheese

Blue cheese from Clover Creek

California Olive Oil Connection

We have six different extra virgin olive oils this week.  We also have 4 different organically grown dried fruits from Van Dyke Organics in Gilroy, CA.  These are great items for the winter months.
