Update for Saturday, February 1st- Super Bowl Weekend

We hope you will stop by the market to get items for Super Bowl gatherings.

I do want to take a moment to thank everyone for continuing to support the market throughout these cold winter months.  We will be open again this Saturday, of course, as we are every Saturday all year.  

Its also important to note that even this time of year we still have 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.  The California Connection has high quality dried fruit, nuts and olive oil.

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

Update for Saturday, December 21st

The Christmas holiday is right around the corner.  Luckily, there is still one more Saturday market before the big day.  So make sure you get to the market this Saturday both to get food for the table, and to pick up a holiday gift or a house warming gift.

The Farmers Market is a great source of gifts and house warming presents for the holidays.  I think people really appreciate getting locally made and grown items.  You can use your imagination and put together a nice basket of items from the market.  Here are some of my suggestions:

o A woven basket from "Hand Made Items from Uganda"
o A hand made wooden toy or cutting board from Bandy Woodworks
o A smoked pheasant from J.L. Kennedy Meat Stand

o A potted flowering plant from Zang's Greenhouse
o A pound of coffee beans from the Kew Park Coffee Bar
o A container of Salsa from Cinco de Mayo
o A bottle of olive oil from the California Connection

o A piece of local cheese from Wheel and Wedge Cheese
o A home made pastry from Rebecca Plum
o A jug of cider from Kistaco Farm
o A jar of all-purpose sauce from Mrs. Jones
o A container of hummus from the Greek Gourmet

o A bottle of balsamic vinegars from Pastamore

o A jar of Amish made pickles from Greenawalt Farm


See you at the Market-

Brian expects to have Jerusalem artichokes, carrots, turnips, onions (several varieties), garlic, cabbage, potatoes (blue, white, Yukon gold and red), carrots, cauliflower, and fresh herbs.  Brian has freshly grown, dried herbs.  Also Brian will have five varieties of dried shelling beans and dried corn.   A full line of winter squash is still available.

  Lots of dried fruit and nuts from California.  These items are great on your holiday table.  With fresh locally grown fruit season over, they are a good replacement.  This Saturday we will have the following at the market:

Apricots (organic) 
Dates (organic)

Also lots of California extra virgin olive oil.

Introducing Wheel and Wedge- Our family has been selling  locally made cheese at the market for 3 years now.  We started with the goat cheese made by Riverview Dairy, but then expanded to other local cheese makers.  We called it- PA Made Cheese- which emphasized the origin of our cheese.  Although we love our local cheese producers and the cheese that they make, we have been wanting to expand our offerings to include cheese styles that are not being made locally.  But we also realized that we needed to sell a larger volume of cheese to support the expansion. So we also wanted to find a venue to sell cheese more than just on Saturdays. We decided to open up a cheese stand at the Pittsburgh Public Market- which is open 5 days a week- Wednesday through Sunday.  Having the outlet at PPM will actually help support our offerings at East Liberty because we will be able to stock cheese from more cheese makers and a offer a more diverse variety of styles.  

To reflect this change, we decided to abandon the PA Made Cheese name and adopt the name Wheel and Wedge.  The new name emphasizes our focus on stocking full wheels of cheese and cutting it by hand into wedges.  We will work exclusively with regional producers of farmstead and artisan cheese.  We are also expanding the cheeses being aged in our Armstrong County cheese cave.  We are now aging cheddar and gouda, in addition to the goat and sheep milk cheese that we have been aging since July.

The first tangible result of these changes is that we have new varieties of cheese for sale at the East Liberty Market.  New producers include:

  • Parish Hill Creamery- Westminster West, Vermont- Provolone cheese made by renowned cheese maker Peter Dixon
  • King's Kreamery- Lancaster County, PA- Camembert, mushroom leek and young sheep cheese
  • Misty Creek- Lancaster County, PA- Semi soft aged goat cheese and a blue cheese made with three milks- cow, goat and sheep
  • Shepard's Hollow Farm- Lancaster, PA- they make a combination cow and sheep milk cheese and a sheep milk blue

More cheese from other producers in Ohio, Indiana and Vermont are on their way.

Of course we can only sustain this with your support so please stop by Wheel and Wedge to try some of our new cheese.  We always give free tastes before buying and cut wedges of any size.

Kew Park Coffee Bar-  We have a fresh batch of dark roast beans that were roasted on the farm in Jamaica.  We also have medium roast beans that were roasted by Commonplace Coffee Roasters. We have Florida citrus for juice- oranges, tangerines and grapefruits.

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.
