Our shoppers must really like pork and poultry because our weekly vendor Majestic Farm has run out! They won’t be at the Market this Sunday because their stock has been depleted.

Tomatoes!

Beautiful heirloom tomatoes from Berry Brook, Stoneberry, & Madura are hitting the Market with their gorgeous hues of yellow, red, orange, and purple and their gnarled, mis-shapened exteriors.

Market News April 20th, 2019

Market News
 Tomorrow marks the end of another successful indoor market season. Thank to all of our shoppers who came out in snow, sleet, and rain to support of our wonderful farmers and food artisans!  Please note that our weekly summer market reopens on Sunday, June 2nd. 

We’re packing the house tomorrow to go out with a bang! Homegrown Nurseries returns with all the seedlings you’ll need to get your kitchen garden going. Did you know Nick also offers garden design and support services? A number of Rivertown families tap into his expertise (he’s an instructor at the New York Botanical Gardens and has spent his life farming from New England to South America)- stop by the tent to get more information on the services and workshops he offers. 

Need a sweet fix this weekend? The French nun from the Fraternite Notre Dame is back with her tarts, quiches and cookies. Pie Lady & Son is rolling out new spring pies including a coconut custard one. Both La Petite Occassion and Luxx offer single servings of decadent chocolates and caramels and if you’re in the mood for something a little bit lighter, My Fit Bakery by Anke visits with treats that are slightly more wholesome- cookies made with oats, granola sweetened with maple syrup, and tea loaves thickened with apple sauce. 

Lastly, Simon, of Sun Sprout Farms, has loads of baby chard, which he swears is the new kale. Eileen Russell returns with handcrafted mezzalunas and bow knives- the mezzalunas are PERFECT for little hands who help in the kitchen! Pisticci is making their last market appearance, The Knife Sharpener visits, and Milton performs!
