Update for Saturday July 30th

I spoke with the farmers this week and asked them what to expect at the market this Saturday  They all said "more of the same."  Yes, more of the same wide selection of delicious locally grown fruits and vegetables. We are entering the prime of the season and the locally grown items are fresh and plentiful.  Tomato's and Corn in particular are now in. Prices are also very reasonable.

We should all start to think about "putting up" various items for the winter.  Last Sunday I made my first batch of tomato puree from a large basket of tomatoes that I purchased at the market.  Delicious!

Speaking of putting things up, our friend Mariam Rubin is at it again with another installment of Miriam's Garden in the Post Gazette. Please check out her article which has a great pickle recipe.  
 
http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/11209/1163261-34-0.stm

Miriam also mentions a pastry chef Susie Treon who makes desserts for Point and Park Bruge.  Just by chance I was hanging out at Park Bruges in Highland Park last night and had the Apricot Tarte Tatin.  It was to dies for.  I thought I was back in France.

Any ways, back to the putting things up topic.  The farmers at the market can usually take orders for larger quantities of items that you can use for canning.  So please put in your orders for baskets, bushels, or truck loads of veggies.  

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

Please stop by to see us this Saturday.

PA Made Cheese

We are now partnering with Wild Purveyors to bring some very special and unique cheeses to the market.  This week we will be offering an incredible Blue Cheese made by Common Folk Organics from Ronks, PA in Lancaster County.  If you are a Blue Cheese lover, you must get a piece of this cheese!

Wild Purveyors is a local, family owned and locally operated business.  Brothers, Cavan and Tom Patterson specialize in seasonal, locally sourced raw and specialty food products which include: foraged mushrooms and other wild edibles, sustainably farmed natural produce, humanely raised natural meats and poultry, sustainably farmed fresh water fish, as well as farmstead and artisan cheeses.  They are committed to providing the freshest, highest quality foods from the Pennsylvania region, whether they are sourced straight from Mother Nature or with a little help from our responsible farmer's hands.

Please check out their website:

http://www.wildpurveyors.com/

The bottom line is that Cavan and Tom scour Pennsylvania for great cheeses so we don't have to.  We expect to be able to offer one or two cheeses each week at the PA Made Cheese booth.

I spoke with the famers and new items I am hearing about include candy onions, yellow squash, savoy and red cabbage, red and black rasberries, red beats and cucumbers- and there may be a few others.

I am sorry to say that the local strawberry season is over.  It was good while it lasted, but we are back to eating the tasteless California and Florida varieties.  Or, you can take advantage of the seasonal local berries that are still available.

  • Sweet Cherries
  • Sour Cherries

  • Red and black rasberries
  • Broccoli
  • Yellow squash

  • Savoy and red cabbage
  • Red beats
Stop by the Kistaco, Zang and Greenawalt booths for the fresh fruit and veggies.

Oh, and speaking of beets and other locally grown stuff, Miriam Rubin is at again with her PG column "In the Garden."  She has 3 great recipes, one for cabbage and 2 for beets.  Please check it out:
