Update for Saturday September 24th

The market is open for business this Saturday.  I did not speak with the farmers this week, so I don't have a specific update for you.   I do think that the items available will be very similar to last week.  So in other words, lots of great locally grown fruits and vegetables at great prices.

Last week I was impressed by what I saw at the market.  I picked up a basket of pickle cucumbers to make some pickles with.  The variety of apples available is increasing.  It was also great to get the first batch of fresh cider from Kistaco Farm.

Please check out the PA Made Cheese counter as we received quite a lot of cheese this week- Fresh curds from Arsenal Cheese, goat cheese products from Riverview Dairy, and aged cheeses from Clover Creek Cheese Cellar.

Please visit the market tomorrow!

Update for Saturday September 17th

This is a great time of year to visit the market because we still have lots of typical summer fruits and vegetables, as well as the arrival of some of the fall varieties.

So you will still be able to find peppers, corn, beans, tomatoes and mellons- just to name a few.  Last week for peaches!

But new arrivals will inlcude a variety of squash like butternut and acorn, leeks, and fruits like apples and concord grapes.

Apple varieties from Kistaco Farm will include Honeycrisp, Gala, and McIntosh.  And yes, Kistaco Farm will also have fresh Cider!  Come and get it.

Please stop by the market this Saturday to get some of these great locally grown varieties.  Remember that prices are excellent this time of year, especially when you buy baskets and bushels.

We just received a batch of fresh roasted coffee from Jamaica, so please stop by the Kew Park Coffee Bar for a fresh brewed cup or a pound of beans.  

See you this Saturday.

General Market Update

There will be a great variety of locally grown vegetables and summer fruit.

This week we will see lots of varieties of tomatoes including heirlooms.  Peppers are also in their prime and many varieties are available.

There will also be great fruit, especially in the mellon department- honeydew, canteloupes and of course watermellons. The peaches, both local and from Chambersburg, are fantastic.  Please enjoy them while you can.

You can stop by the Greenawalts, Kennedy, Kistaco or Zang booths.

Please also remember to stop by the PA Made Cheese booth for locally made artisinal cheeses, and the California Olive Oil Connection for "local" extra virgin Olive Oil.  These are great accompaniments for the local meat and vegetables available at the market.

We just received a fresh shipment of goat cheeses from Sam and Susy Byler from Riverview Dairy.

The Kew Park Coffee Bar will have iced coffee, fresh squeezed lemonade and limeade.

Please stop by to see us this Saturday.

Update for Saturday August 20th

I spoke to a few of the farmers this week.  All I can say is that we are definitely in the prime of summer.  There will be a great variety of locally grown vegetables and summer fruit.

This week we will see lots of varieties of tomatoes including heirlooms.

Peppers are also in their prime and many varieties are available.

There will also be great fruit, especially in the mellon department- honeydew, canteloupes and of course watermellons. The peaches, both local and from Chambersburg, are fantastic.  Please enjoy them while you can.

You can stop by the Greenawalts, Kennedy, Kistaco or Zang booths.

Please also remember to stop by the PA Made Cheese booth for locally made artisinal cheeses, and the California Olive Oil Connection for "local" extra virgin Olive Oil.  These are great accompaniments for the local meat and vegetables available at the market.

For example, every week we get a delivery of fresh cheese curds from Arsenal Cheese.  I would suggest that you prepare them as you would with fresh Mozzarella-  Slice some tomatoes, top with fresh cheese curds and drizzle on the CA Olive oil.  Finish with chopped basil.  Serve it with a steak.  Yum!

The Kew Park Coffee Bar will have iced coffee, fresh squeezed lemonade and limeade.

Please stop by to see us this Saturday.

J.L. Kennedy Meat Stand Update

Special items for this Saturday, August 20th:

- Special show lambs will be available at our regular prices...all cuts still available so please call farm to leave an order ASAP...

- Special show hogs for all cuts of pork also...


-We still have one half of beef show steer available in cut wrapped and frozen form. This is our last offering of this type for the year and you can choose whatever cuts you want! We include the clear vacuum packaging cost this time.


The Kennedy children have been working hard raising their special show animals.  The Butler Farm Show was last week and they did quite well in the competitions.  Jacob had the reserve champion market hog. He also had the reserve champion market lamb to taylor' s grand champion market lamb.  Jacon also had a steer place second in its class. 

It was an awesome week for us as exhibitors but not surprising as we know how much work, care, and love went into each animal project those children exhibited. Thanks to all of you who gave your words of ecouragement and praise...it means so very much!!!
