Farmers Market Coop of East Liberty Update

Posted 8/31/2012 7:44am by Val Kennedy.

Update for Saturday September 1, Labor Day Weekend

Hello everyone.  I was not able to connect with the farmers this week.  I am sorry about that, but I do expect the offerings this Saturday to be similar to last week, plus or minus a few items.  Lots of great fresh locally grown fruits and veggies, local meat from the J.L. Kennedy Meat Stand, and lots of other items.  So please come out on Saturday and get some great food for your holiday gatherings.

One additional note, I did hear from Bandy Woodworks that they will not be at the market on Saturday.

Happy Holiday

David Lagnese

Other items should include sweet corn, zucchini, yellow squash, pickle cucumbers, radishes, green onions, lettuce, swiss chard, green beans and lima beans, swiss chard and peppers.  Fruit wise, they will have mellons (canteloupe, water mellons and honeydew), peaches and apples.  Expect some surprises as Brian visits his Amish farmer friends on Fridays and always picks a few unexpected items.

Sweet corn from McElhaney farm.  In the fruit department- watermellons (several varieties) and Chambersburg peaches.

BANDY Woodworks

...Is a local business that makes children's toys, custom furniture, and other great items for the home (cutting boards, etc).  They make them out of local reclaimed and salvaged wood and use non-toxic finishes.  Their booth is on the right when you walk in the front door, directly across from Greenawalt's.  Preview some of the items carried at the market by visitingwww.bandywoodworks.etsy.com.
