Farmers Market Coop of East Liberty Update

Posted 2/2/2012 9:31pm by Val Kennedy.

Update for Saturday February 4th

It's Super Bowl weekend so please stop by the market this Saturday to pick up some items for you Super Bowl event.  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- Locally grown meat from the Kennedy's.  Get their early before they sell out!
  • Kistaco Farm continues to have locally raised apples and apple cider.  Fall apples in February- where else can you find that!

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.

Veggies

  • Potatoes (still locally grown at Greenawalt's)
  • Mushrooms
  • Squash
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Celery
  • Cucumbers
  • Carrots and other root vegetables
  • Onions
  • Cauliflower
  • Tomatoes
  • Shallots
  • Peppers- sweet and hot
  • Garlic

Fruit

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!
