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

Update for Saturday August 25th

Hello everyone.  Last week was a busy day at the market with the summer growing season in full swing.  There were lots of local mellons, peaches and other fruit, as well as lots of veggies.  And of course the Kennedy's had some very special meat offerings.  The "shelly beans" arrived and apparently sold out quickly.  Both Zang and Greenawalts will have shelly beans this Saturday.  Get them while you can, and check out the article in the PG about them.

http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/life/food/shelly-beans-are-a-summer-treat-not-to-be-missed-649195/

Please consider also that this is a great time of year to can tomoatoes and other vegetables.  So pick up those large boxes and baskets of tomoatoes and get busy canning.

See below for the weekly update.

Update for Saturday August 4th

We had a great market day last Saturday and expect another one this week.  We are at the hight of the local growing season with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.  I picked up a half bushel of pickling cucumbers and put up a batch of kosher dills.  Stop by the PA Made Cheese stand for some free pickle samples.  I also picked up a large basket of plums and peaches and took them in to the office to share with my co-workers.  When you buy in bulk, the farmers are able to offer some great prices.  And you will be a hero with friends and family when you share the goodies.

I would also like to note that local melons are now ripening.  Several different varieties will be available at the market.  Most people prefer to just cut them up and eat them, but you can use melon in recipes.  So check out some interesting watermellon recipes that Mariam Rubin published in the PG today.  Pickled watermellon- I will have to try that one!

http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/life/food/watermelons-moment-is-now-647150/

Please see below for the weekly update.  See you at the market.

The Update

Greenawalt Farm

I was not able to connect with with Brian Greenawalt this week but expect that he will have some great locally grown items this week.  I was very impressed with his offerings last week.  I expect him to have watermellons and other mellons.  Other items should include sweet corn, zucchini, yellow squash, pickle cucumbers, radishes, green onions, peaches, lettuce, swiss chard, blueberries.  Check out their fresh cut herbs such as chives and mint.  In addition they will have locally grown eggs and their normal selection of Amish made products.
 
I told you last week about the tragic events of  the Amish farmer Mary Yoder who was killed by a lightning strike.  She was harvesting blackberries with her husband and 2 small children when a storm came upon them.   They took refuge under a tree, where she was struck by lightning and killed.  The Greenawalts shared more information with us last Saturday that I want to share with all of you.  A fund has been set up to benefit the family and people can make donations to the fund.  Here is the information.  
 
Checks should be made out to the "Menno Yoder Family"

They can be send to:
Citizen's National Bank
135 Center Street
Myersdale, PA 15552
814-634-5941
 
I am sure that any amount of money you can send would be appreciated.

Kew Park Coffee Bar

This time of year with the hot weather we offer iced coffee, fresh squezed lemonaid and of course fresh squeezed OJ.  

We also have fresh locally roasted whole coffee beans- both medium and dark roast.


California Olive Oil Connection

This is the time of year that I really love olive oil because it goes so well with all these locally grown veggies.  I like to use ths spicier oils raw poured on slads and blanched vegetables.  I also like to roast all sorts of veggies (including onions and garlic) drizzled with lots of olive oil.  We have six varieties of California grown, certified extra virgnin olive oil available.  This is the real thing, not the fake, adulterated stuff.

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

PA Made Cheese-  As mentioned, stop by the PA Mades cheese booth for some free pickle samples.  I do have some bad news- Arsenal Cheese, the guys who made the wonderful curds, have closed their operation.  From what they tell me, it was just too difficult to get the quantity of raw milk in to the city where they make the cheese.  They tried to move the operation closer to a milk source, but could not find the right situation.  I am so sorry to see them go as their cheese was really delicious.  So thanks to Jonathan Gaugler and his father Scott Gaugler who brought this wonderful cheese.
