Update for Saturday, September 28th

Hello farmers market fans.  This Saturday should be another great day at the market.

Last week was the first week for fresh pressed cider from Kistaco Farm.  The taste was excellent.  I always say that Kistaco's is the best in the region because of its balance of sweet and tart flavors.  So stop by and pick up a jug for you and for a friend.

Special visit-  One of our regular customers Sylvia Lynch recently started selling some wonderful aged balsamic vinegars at the outdoor farmers markets.  She calls her business Pastamore'.  We invited her to stop by our market to sell some of this excellent vinegar.  I have had lots of different balsamic vinegars and must say this is some of the best I have ever had.  So please stop by and try some.  Of course vinegar goes very well with all of the California olive oils that are also available at the market.

The Greenawalts in the news- For those of you that may have missed it, our local NPR radio station, WESA 90.5 FM did a story this week on gleaning.  Featured in the story was our very own Greenawalt family.  They participate in a gleaning program that gets excess vegetables from their farm into the the hands of needy people through local food banks.  You can read and hear the story by clicking on the following link:

Cheers to the Greenawalt Family.

See you at the market.

Greenawalt Farm

Last week Brian brought a huge truckload of all sorts of Amish grown vegetables to the market.  He will be heading out to Somerset County again tomorrow to get another load.  He gave me a list of all the thibgs he expects to have but also said to "expect surprises."

I expect he will have water mellons, rhubarb, green beans, sweet corn, onions (several varieties) leeks, hot peppers and green peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, cukes, pickles, peaches, nectarines, fresh garlic, cabbage, tomatoes (several varieties), new potatoes (white, yukon gold and red), and fresh herbs.  Brian also has freshly grown, dried herbs.  Also Brian will heve several varieties of shelling beans and grapes- concords and other varieties.

A full line of winter squash is now available, as well as fall items like decorating squash and pumpkins.

Greenawalt's always have fresh local eggs and many types of Amish canned items and dried beans. They also have some cured meat items from Lancaster County- bacon and kielbasa.

Kistaco Farm

The Kistaco Farm stand will have:

Cider
Apple varieties:
- Honeycrisp
- Gala
- McIntosh
- Jonathan
- Cortland
- Red Delicious
- Golden Delicious
- Jonagold
- Macoun
6 kinds of peppers
eggplant
kale
collards
broccoli
cabbage
tomatoes
zucchini

And bread from Wood Street Bread Co.

Zang's Greenhouse...Rick will have watermellons, several types of peppers, shallots, tomatoes, pickles, cukes, candy onions, fresh garlic, green beans, beets, several varieties of lettuce, micro greens, zucchini, 2 varieties of cabbage, sweet corn, cauliflower, mushrooms, plums, sickle and bartlett pears.
  Concord grapes from Erie County will be available. 

California Connection-
  We started selling the California dried fruit and nuts last week and folks seemed to really like them.  The dried figs were the most popular item.  New items this week include apricots from Van Dyke Ranch and dates from Flying Disc Ranch.   This Saturday we will have the following at the market:

Apricots (organic) 
Dates (organic)
Peaches
Cherries
Figs
Plouts
Raisins
Raw almonds
Pistachios (organic)

Bella Viva Orchards

As mentioned, most of the fruit is coming from Bella Viva Orchards. I discovered them when  I was out there in March  I did not get to visit the farm, which is located in the Central Valley near Modesto.  Instead, I met them at the Farmers Market at the Ferry Building in San Francisco.  They were selling an incredible array of dried fruits- cherries, apricots, pluots, peaches and nectarines to name a few.  I was really impressed by how beautiful looking the fruit was and also how moist and tasty it was. The farm is operated by the Martino Family.  Named for their daughters, Vivian and Belle, Bella Viva means beautiful long life in Italian.  What sets them apart in my mind, is that they have become quite expert at the processing and drying of the fresh fruit.  It is very difficult to master this, and at Bella Viva it is all processed and dried naturally under the California sun.  I really think you are going to enjoy this fruit. 

Click on their website and watch the little video about their farm and the great shots of the large racks of fruit drying in the sun.


Kew Park Coffee Bar-  We have a fresh batch of beans that were roasted by Commonplace Coffee Roasters. Also fresh squeezed orange juice and freshly made concord grape juice.  Last week was the first week for the grape juice and it is delicious.  Get it while you can as its only in season for a few weeks.

PA Made Cheese-   We will have aged sheep and goat milk cheeses that were ageed in the cheese cave.  Unfortunately the Bylers will not be able to make it in for a visit but we hope that they will in the near future. 

The Greek Gourmet-
 will have homemade spinach and meat pies at the market each week- in addition to 20+ flavors of hummus.  Stop by and talk to Jack at the booth.

BANDY Woodworks BANDY Woodworks will have will have a new batch of honey locust serving boards and end-grain cutting boards this week.  All items are made in their shop using local reclaimed and salvaged wood and non-toxic finishes.  Their booth is on the right when you walk in the front door from N. Sheridan, directly across from Greenawalt's.  Preview some of the items carried at the market by visiting:

Update for Saturday, September 21st

Hello Farmers market fans.  This Saturday should be another great day at the market.

You know fall is here when the fresh pressed apple cider shows up.  I am happy to report that fresh cider will be available at the Kistaco stand. So stop by and pick up a jug.

Good news, bad news.  The bad news is that the local peach season is over.  That alwasy makes me sad.  But we did have a really good and long peach season this year, so I guess we can't complain.  The good news is that the dried fruit from California has arrived and is available at the California Connection stand.  We have some wondewrful dried peaches that are large and moist.  See below for an update.

See you at the market.

Update for Saturday, August 17th

Hello everyone.  We will have a great selection of locally grown items this week.

As mentioned last week, peaches are here, so get them while you can at the Zang, Kistaco and Greenawalt stands.

The farmers tell me that the weather is really hurting the tomato crop this year.  They are slow to ripen, and this recent cool weather has not helped.  But the farmers tell me that this week they will have tomoatos in sufficient quantities for canning.  Yeah!  Check out the Kistaco, Greenawalt and Zang stands.

Please see below for a cheese update and an update from Bandy Woodworks.

See you at the market.

Kistaco Farm

The Kistaco Farm stand will have:

Rambo Apples
Paula Red Apples
Earligold Apples
White Freestone Peaches
Yellow Freestone Peaches
Blueberries
Kale
Collards
Broccoli
Tomatoes (lots of volume and variety)
Peppers (also lots of volume and variety)
Eggplant
Zucchini

And bread from Wood Street Bread Co.

Zang's Greenhouse...Rick will have Chambersburg peaches, watermellons, blackberries, swiss chard, shallots, leeks, tomatoes, pickles, cukes, candy onions, fresh garlic, green beans, beets, several varieties of lettuce, micro greens, zucchini, 2 varieties of cabbage, sweet corn, cauliflower, mushrooms, blueberries.  

New items for this week include Roma tomatoes, satuma plums and kidney beans.
 
From California-  Valencia oranges, lemons and limes.

Kew Park Coffee Bar-
  We have a fresh batch of beans that were roasted by Commonplace Coffee Roasters. I spoke with Peter Williams the proprietor of Kew Park Estate and he said that the coffee is doing really well this year.  He said it will be a very large and high quality crop this year.  That's great since we are almost out of green beans and pretty close to being ready for a new shipment.  He thinks harvest will start on the next month or so.

PA Made Cheese-   This week I visited Birchrun Hills Farm.  The farm is located in Chester Springs, PA which is in Chester County.  We were visiting relatives in Reading so it was only a short distance away. The farm is in a beautiful area that has many 19th and 18th century buildings.  Part of the farm house itself dates to the early 1700's.  Its just a beautiful part of Pennsylvania, very different from the western side of the state with so many old and historic buildings.

My wife Cristy and I spent some time with farmer, and cheese maker Sue Miller.  Her's is a typical story of a farming family that got into cheese making as a way to keep the family dairy farm going.  Well Sue has developed into quite a cheese maker.  I first tried it at the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia.  I tried the Fat Cat, which is a washed rind cheese, and it was love at first bite.  I have received a few shipments for the market, but the problem is that its become so popular that she can't make it fast enough. So I thought a personal visit would help.  Sure enough, Sue agreed to send me a monthly shipment of the Fat Cat and the Birchrun Blue.  So I hope to have a pretty steady supply of this wonderful cheese.  Please stop by and try some and check out their website:

http://birchrunhillsfarm.com

In additon, we will have a wide assortment of locally made cheese including aged sheep milk cheese and Halloumi made by Riverview Dairy.  I visited the sheep cave last week to inspect the cheese.  We now have about 140 wheels of sheep and goat cheese in the cave.  The hydrometers are still showing perfect conditions- 55 degrees and 95% humidity.   The cheese is reacting well to the environment.  It is growing a fuzzy white mold, which is a good thing.  The wheels are staying moist and not cracking.  The first batch of "Young" pecorino (sheep milk cheese) will be ready in mid September.

The Greek Gourmet-
 will have homemade spinach and meat pies at the market each week- in addition to 20+ flavors of hummus.  Stop by and talk to Jack at the booth.

BANDY Woodworks BANDY Woodworks will have will have a new batch of honey locust serving boards and end-grain cutting boards this week.  All items are made in their shop using local reclaimed and salvaged wood and non-toxic finishes.  Their booth is on the right when you walk in the front door from N.

Update for Saturday, August 10th

Hello everyone.  We will have a great selection of locally grown items this week.

I want to highlight peaches this week, because they are really coming into their prime season.  Rick Zang will have peaches from Chambersburg, Kistaco will have peaches from their Armstrong County farm, and Greenawalts will have some from Somerset County.  This is the time to buy in bulk and preserve them for winter.  I plan to make home made peach fruit leather.  Its very easy to do, so just stop by the PA Made Cheese both and I can tell you how to make it.

The farmers tell me that all of this rain is slowing down the growing season.  Thats why things like tomatoes and peppers are late to arrive in large quantities.

Last weekend I was in DC on a college tour with my daughter Maria.  I was able to visit the Eastern Market.  Eastern Market is located in the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington DC.  This was my "first love" in terms of farmers markets as I lived in the neighborhood in the mid 1980's when I worked as a Congressional aid.  Its been around since 1871, so it has about 70 years on our East Liberty market.  I had not been there in almost 30 years, but am happy to report that it is doing very well.  Although they had a fire a few years ago, they renovated the inside and its now full of vendors of all sorts- meat, fish, baked goods, produce and flowers.  They have a lunch counter that serves great fish and crabcake sandwiches.  If you are in DC for a visit, please consider visiting the market.  Its open every day except Monday. Its easy to get to as it has its own Metro stop on the BlueOrange line.  Check it out:
