Update for Saturday December 3rd

We had a great thanksgiving season at the market.  Thanks to everyone who supported the market during the holiday and throughout the year. 

We will be open this Saturday, and will have a full contingent of farmers and vendors available.  

One of our challenges as a market is that many people think we close for the winter after the thanksgiving holiday.  Of course we do not, we are open all year long, every Saturday.  So we are asking all of our loyal customers to take one or two of our promotional post cards for the market and give it to friend or family member to let people know that we are open all winter.  We will be passing out the cards this Saturday so thanks in advance for your support.


One thing to note is that Peter Williams, farmer and proprieter of the Kew Park Coffee Estate in Westmoreland Jamaica will be visiting the market next Saturday, December 10th.  More details in next weeks update.


I spoke to a few of the farmers so read below for an update.

Kistaco Farm 

Kistaco will have 12 varieties of apples this week.  They will also have cider, fresh cooking greens and squash.  I know I was too busy to make a pie over the holidays, so I cheated and bought one from the Kennedy's (which by the way was fabulous).  But I picked up one of those fancy earthenware pie dishes from Williams Somona today and plan to make an apple pie this weekend.

*********************************************************

Zang's Greenhouse

Rick from Zang's Greenhouse will have a wide variety of local vegetables, including potatoes, mushrooms, leeks, onions and shallots.  In the flower department, rick will have poinsettias, cyclamen, and Amaryllis.

*********************************************************

Greenawalt Farm

Locally grown items include turnips, potatoes, lots of squash.  Of course eggs are always available. 

Brian picked up quite a bit of pine greens for decorating the house for the holidays- varieties include Blue Spruce and White Pine.
 

*********************************************************

Kew Park Coffee Bar

As mentioned, Peter Williams from Kew Park Coffee will be visiting the market next Saturday, December 10th.  It has been over a year since Peter has visited, so we are really excited to have him.  Jamaica is a long way off, so we really appreciate when Peter visits.  After market, Peter and I plan to meet with a few local coffee roasters so that we can begin roasting the raw (green) beans locally here in Pittsburgh.  We are very excited to reach this milestone.  I will have more details in next weeks update.


Cook Books for sale

My father recently wrote and published a book called "Cookin"- a book on food and life.  My father, was a big part of my inspiration and passion for food.  So I really glad that he spent the time to put together his thought on life and food into a book.  The Post-Gazette ran a nice little article on the book.  Check it out.  


 http://www.postgazette.com/pg/11325/1190905-34.stm

Proceeds from sales of the book goes to a foundation that our family established to benefit people afflicted by Cystic Fibrosis.  We lost our sister-in-law, Muriel to CF last year, so we call the fondation Muriel's Breath of Life..  We will be selling books at the market.  They are only $10, and we will donate an additional $15 to the foundation for each book sold.

Update for Thanksgiving week

We had a great day at the market on Saturday- The market was packed from opening until closing, so it was a lot of fun.  Thanks to everyone that supports the market and your local farmers.

I want to update everyone on the schedule for this week....


Wednesday, November 23 (the day before Thanksgiving)

We are open the day before Thanksgiving- from 5 am until about 10 am.

Many people have ordered their Holiday meats from J.L. Kennedy Meat Stand, so this is the big pick-up day.  I asked Val Kennedy if there are still any holiday birds available for you procrastinaters out there.  She said yes there are a few birds left, but its important to call out to the farm as soon as possible.  Val also said there are PASTURE-RAISED CAPONS (special roasting chickens) available. The deadline for ordering is Tuesday at 5 pm, but obviously you should call as soon as possible.  The number at the farm is 724-898-2316.

The Kennedy's will also have their fabulous home baked pies- they will offer pumpkin, apple, Caramelapplewalnut, pecan, and strawberry/ rhubarb. Yum.  No need to bake when these pies are available.

Zang's and Greenawalts will be open with a wide selection of veggetables available.  Kistaco Farm will not be open.

As far as other vendors, the Kew Park Coffee Bar, California Olive Oil Connection and PA Made Cheese will all be open.

Saturday, November 26

The market will be open as usual the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  I think all farmers and vendors will be open with the exception of J.L. Kennedy Meat Stand.  They will be taking a much deserved break.

See you at the market.

Update for Saturday November 12th

We are all gearing up for Thanksgiving.  And thanfully, the selection of food available at the market is excellent.  There are still many locally grown items, as well as some carefully selected "imports."  I was able to connect with all the farmers today, and here is a summary of the items available this week.

Kistaco Farm 

Kistaco will have 12 varieties of apples this week including:  

Gala
Jonathan
Rome
Red Delicious
Golden Delicious
Idared
Mutsu
Fuji
Jonagold
Stayman Winesap
Empire
Northern Spy

In addition, Pittsburgh's best cider from Kistaco Farm will also be available in 1/2 and full gallons.

Also, Apple Butter will be available.  In the vegetable department, check out the fresh Kale. 

***********************************************************************************************

Rick from Zang's Greenhouse will have a wide variety of local vegetables, including potatoes, beets, leeks, onions and shallots.  

Rick will also have local lettuce, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, cabbage and carrots.  In the fruit department- bosch pears.

In the flower department- cycleman flowers.

***********************************************************************************************
Greenawalt Farm

Brian Greenawalt will come through again with strawberries, yes locally grown strawberries.  Hard to believe this time of year.  I bought a quart last week and they were excellent.  The only problem is that they don't last very long around the house.

Other locally grown items include cauliflower (white and orange), buttercup lettuce, white potatoes, sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts.  Lots of squash is available-  varieties include- Blue Hubbard, Kabocha (Green and Orange), Delicata, Spaghetti, Butternut, Butter Cup and Acorn.  Kohlarabi, and cabbage are available. 

In the fruit department, a few varieties of apples and pears.

I am pretty sure Greenawalt will have some quince available- last of the season.

Finally, Brian will have a small amount of fresh horseradish.

*********************************************************
PA Made Cheese

There are a few items to note this week.  

I have been "over-ordering" lately so we have lots of Pennsylvania cheese at the market.

o Fresh curds- from Arsenal Cheese in Lawrenceville

Blue Cheese from Common Folk Organics- amazing stuff from Lancaser County, PA

o Small wheels of Camembert from  Stone Madow Farm, Centre County, PA

We still have some Membrillo (quince paste) and will give away 1oz pieces with a purchase of cheese.

*********************************************************************************

Kew Park Coffee Bar

We will have hot coffee availale as always.  In the juice department we will have fresh squeezed tangerine, orange and grapefruit juice.  

***********************************************************************

Dried Organic Fruit

Last fall, we started carrying dried organically grown fruit from Van Dyke farm in Gilroy California.  We carried it throut the winter, until fresh local fruit was available.  But we have had a lot of requests for it, so we reordered a new batch from Van Dyke.  This is another family run operation.  I have been working with Peter Van Dyke.

The fruit is certified organic. Its hand grown, picked and processed- then dried under the California sun.  The flavor is incredible.  Blenheim apricots are their signature item, but we also have nectatarines, pears and parsimons. Dried fruit sure beats candy for a snack and kids love them.


Check out the Van Dyne website for more information.

Update for Saturday, November 5th


Hello Friends and neighbors,

I was traveling on business this week so I did not have an opportunity to speak with the farmers.  So I don't have a specific update, but I expect that the items available will be similar to last week, so I have included the information from my last week update below.  I was impressed that last week we had a really strong turnout even though the weather was nasty.  It was snowing or raining the whole time but it did not seem to dampen people's enthusiasm.

Kew Park Coffee Update

I needed to travel to Washington, DC this week on business for my day job.  As luck would have it, Peter Williams and his wife Gina, the owners of Kew Park Coffee Estatate, live part of the year in Washington.  They shuttle back and forth between the farm in Jamaica and Washington where their 2 children go to school.  In any case, we were able to get together and catch up on things.  

They updated me on the status of the 2011 coffee crop.  I am happy to report that the crop is ripening very well. The harvest is just about to begin.  They worked really hard this year to fertilize the coffee plants with chicken manure.  Peter said that the results were very good.  The crop is large and of very high quality.  So I am very excited to get some of the new crop into the market in the near future.

I also got an update on the status of shipping green (unroasted) beans into the market.  Up until now, we heve been receiving small shipments (20 to 30 pounds) of beans that are roasted on the farm in Jamaica, and shipped directly to Pittsburgh for sale at the market.  But we have been working on getting licensed to ship much larger shipments of green (unroasted) beans to Pittsburgh, and then roasting them locally.  We have been working on getting through all the regulatory red tape for over one year!  But finally, we have a 60 kilo shipment of beans that have arrived here in Pittsburgh.  As soon as they get through US Customs and FDA approvals, we will be able to get them into our hands.  I will keep you posted.

Pittsburgh East Rotary Club Pancake Breakfast

The 15th Annual Pittsburgh East Rotary Club (PERC) Pancake Breakfast & Auction will be held this Saturday from 8:00 a.m. ~ 12:00 noon, at Eastminster Presbyterian Church (across from the Market and The Home Depot parking lot).

This is a really fun event.  The food is excellent, and proceeds benefit charities.  Last year we donated a basket of Farmers' Market goodies for the auction, and we will be doing that again this year.

So please plan to participate in this event either before or after stopping by the Farmers' Market.

If you are interested in learning more about PERC, check out their website.  We certainly feel an affinity for this organization since they were founded in the same era as our market.  The Farmers' Market Coop of East Liberty started operations on July 6, 1941, and PERC was founded in 1945.  Check them out at:

http://www.pittsburgheastrotary.org/

 

So please support the farmers by stopping by the market and also support PERC by going to the Pancake Breakfast.

David Lagnese

****************************************************
Update for Saturday October 29th

We had a great market last saturday with tons of locally grown fruit and vegetables. I heard from the farmers this week and here is a summary of the items available this week.

Kistaco Farm 

Kistaco will have 12 varieties of apples this week including:  McIntosh, Cortland, Jonathan, Jonagold, Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Empire, Gala, Macoun, Northern Spy.  


And of course Kistaco cider is a must for the Haloween weekend.

 

***********************************************************************************************

Zang's Greenhouse

I spoke with Rick Zang from Zang's Greenhouse.   Rick will have a wide variety of local vegetables, including potatoes, beets, beans, greens, leeks, peppers, onions and shallots.  

Rick will also have local lettuce, diakon radishes, and red fingerling potatoes.  Cranberries from Wisconsin are in.

Fresh Romanesco will be available.  What's Romansco?  Not being sure myself, I looked it up and here is what I found:

http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2009/10/seriously-italian-broccoli-romanesco-recipes.html

Looks like a cross between broccoli and cauliflower.

***********************************************************************************************
Greenawalt Farm

Brian Greenawalt will come through again with strawberries, yes locally grown strawberries.  You will need to get there early for these, as they went quickly last week.

Other locally grown items include cauliflower, tomatoes, buttercup lettuce, sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts.  Lots of squash is available-  varieties include- Blue Hubbard, Kabocha (Green and Orange), Delicata, Spaghetti, Butternut, Butter Cup and Acorn.

*********************************************************
PA Made Cheese

There is an ever expanding selection of Pennsylvania made cheeses available at the PA Made Cheese stand.  A fresh shipment of goat cheeses from Riverview Dairy arrived this week.  The Blue Cheese from Common Folk Organics is back.

We are also continuing to give away free membrillo samples (quince paste) with any cheese purchase. And speaking of quince.....

 

*********************************************************************************

SAVE THE QUINCE UPDATE

 

We have had fresh quince available at the market for the past 6 weeks or so. My call to action to use quince has really worked.  The quince available at the market has sold out quickly each week.  I got a call today from a woman in Wheeling WV who plans to drive up to visit the market this Saturday to see if she can get some quince.  I told her I could not guarantee that quince will be available, but she plans to come anyways.  Wow, what a reaction!

Update on Legume Bistro...

Trevett Hooper, owner and chef at Legume Bistro picked up some of quince and made duck liver and quince mousse.  I stopped by to taste it and it was fabulous.  

If you have not had a chance to visit Legume Bistro at their new location, you need to put it on your "must do" list.  Legume is now located on Craig Street at the former More Restaurant location.  They renovated the whole place.  The dining room is spacious and comfortable.  No longer a BYOB, they have a wonderful bar area with lots of retro features.  The kitchen is well equipped and spotlessly clean.  Of course the food is consistent with the old legume- simple but delicious.  They source most of their ingredients locally, so their menu features seasonal items.  Check out their site and make a reservation as soon as possible!

http://legumebistro.com/

And thanks to Trevett for supporting the market.

***********************************************************************

Kew Park Coffee Bar

A fresh shipment of beans from Jamaica arrived this week.  At the juice bar, we will have fresh made cranberry juice.

***********************************************************************

Fruits and vegetables are also available at the Kennedy Farm stand.

Lots of fall and Haloween items are available all over the market.  We have pumpkins, gourds, indian corn, and corn stocks.
