Hi Tuesday Market Friends-
This week’s market will be perfect weather, abundant food, music and flowers! Plan a stroll, stay a while if you can. Aaron Coooper will be performing “high energy, toe-tapping folk” during the afternoon.
Park Hill Orchard has perfected their cider donut recipe. They’re available at the the farm for the perfect treat before or after apple picking and at the Tuesday Market by the half-dozen. They even feature Justamere Tree Farm’s maple sugar.
More orchard news, Apex Orchard has picked the first of the crowd-pleasing Honeycrisp apples. Grab some this week!
Paul at New England Wild Edibles reports a great wild harvest of shiitake and chicken of the woods mushrooms. They will be available this week. Keep watching Paul’s stand in the coming weeks for more locally foraged varieties. Stop by the market tent if you’re looking for recipe ideas, we’re full of them!
Join my family and I at a unique party this Saturday night to launch the expansion of Sweet Birch Herbals’ Full Moon Ghee. Read their words here…Help us make ghee more accessible in New England! We love providing delicious ghee to our local farmers markets and we want to offer it in stores and restaurants. We are launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for expanding to a larger community kitchen in Greenfield. We hope you will join us for the launch party on Saturday, September 17th at 5pm in the Foxtown Farm Barn, 66 Sunderland Road, Montague. There will be live music, tasty treats made with lots of ghee, demonstrations of ghee making on an open fire, and an Indian bazaar full of clothing, jewelry, and other goods for sale!
