Farmers' Market Coop of East Liberty Update

Posted 7/19/2013 9:04am by Val Kennedy.

Update for Saturday, July 20th

Hello everyone. I had a hectic week and was not able to get an update from all the farmers.  I am sorry for that.  But have no fear, I expect locally grown offerings to be diverse, plentifull and very fresh.  So please visit the market this Saturday.

I do want to empasize a special event this Saturday at the J.L. Kennedy Meat Stand.  They will have
GRASS-FED BEEF- which  is a special offering that is only available a few times during the year.  This is a very special product that has become popular in recent years.  It's very lean beef that is best slow-cooked or braised in any flavor or style you choose. Also, it can be prepared by using a seasoning rub overnight, which will enable any basic cut to be grilled,etc.

So please help spread the word.  If you can, please call out to the farm today.

Please remember to call the Kennedy's during their business hours of 9 to 9 Monday through Thursday, and 9 to 6 on Friday. 
The number at the farm is 724-898-2316.

One other item of note, our market was voted "best farmers market" in the 2013 Pittsburgh Magazine Best of the Burgh Readers' Poll.  Wow, what an honor! It is especially flattering considering how many farmers markets there are these days.  Please check it out and see some of the winners in other categories. Thanks to all of our loyal customers who voted for us.
