Update for Saturday, February 8th

We had a really great market last week.  Thanks to all of you that came out.  People seemed to really enjoy getting out and talking to their neighbors.

We will be at it again this Saturday, so please come out and visit the market.  Even when its cold outside, its warm inside the market.  And the coffee will be on as usual.

The offerings this week will be very similar to last week including many locally grown items:

  • Meat from the Kennedy's
  • Greenawalts have potatoes, squash, dried beans and eggs
  • Kistaco Farm has fresh apples and fresh pressed cider
  • Zang's has local salad greens and PA mushrooms
  • Wheel and Wedge Cheese has locally made cheese

The market also has carefully selected shipped-in fruit and vegetables.  Rick Zang for example has some great Florida and California citrus.  We are making juice out of it at the Kew Park stand. The California Connection has high quality dried fruit, nuts and olive oil.  Excellent vinegar from Pastamore.

And of course other locally made items are available from Greek Gourmet, Rebecca Plum baked goods, Cinco de Mayo Salsa and Better Made Donuts.

See you at the market- David Lagnese
