Seneca Falls Farmers Market Report 6/13

It was great to see so many people out last week enjoying the nice weather and purchasing local products at the market. David & Jerry Wengerd, our Amish produce vendor from Clyde who has been with us since the market started will be starting at the market this week. And Perrine Family Farm from Lyons will be returning with their all natural chicken, lamb, and beef products. Fresh produce is looking great, especially the greens and strawberries last week. Goat milk, cheese and yogurt are now available at the market and there should even be samplings of them this week. I am anxious for the opportunity to try them; a new experience for me! As always there will be fresh baked breads, cookies, macaroons, pastries, cakes and granola, farm fresh eggs, cheese from 5 local creameries, potted plants, hand-crafted items, and don’t forget lunch in the park! This week Dave & Rita’s Farm Market will be featuring pulled pork sandwiches on a fresh baked roll and three cheese mac & cheese, each available alone or make it a combo which includes choice of macaroni or pasta salad, and a drink (Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Sprite or Bottled Water). Also available are Dave and Rita’s own Iceberg salads. Don’t miss out on all these fresh, local products. We open at 9AM and stay until 1:30PM each Wednesday in People’s Park, Seneca Falls. Come early for the best selection, come later and still get some great deals then stay for lunch and enjoy the ambiance of the market. Talk to the people who grow and produce the items you buy. Many products are grown chemical free and one vendor specializes in heirloom varieties of produce. Come and learn where your food comes from, from the people who know!Once again Seneca County Cornell Cooperative Extensions’ nutrition staff will be on hand, this week with cheese fondue for tasting! Take home the recipe and pick up the cheese at the market. WIC and Senior Citizen Farmers Market Nutrition Coupons are accepted by all produce vendors for fresh fruits and vegetables. And food stamp recipients just need to stop by the market manager’s tent to swipe their EBT card and use their benefits to purchase food stamp eligible items from any vendor.Come and see why the Seneca Falls Farmers Market keeps growing! Thank you to the Town of Seneca Falls and the Seneca Falls Recreation Department for their support of the market. We couldn’t do it without them!
