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!

March 23rd Market News

Looking for an easy weekend brunch dish or weeknight dinner option? Try a quiche from the nuns of the Fraternite Notre Dame. Along with quiches, the nuns make tarts and cookies that they bring to market in order to fund their soup kitchen, food pantry, and other East Harlem programs. Stop by their table to learn more about their work and don’t forget to pick up one of their French delicacies.

Looking for a healthier, gluten-free dessert? Check out our newest vendor, Anke’s Fit Bakery. Anke is a certified fitness trainer who set out to create cookies, granola bars, and other treats that were made with wholesome ingredients and less sugar than the ones you can  get at the store. She’s very clear that these cookies won’t make you skinny and aren’t diet food but they are a little something sweet that you don’t have to feel guilty about! 

Marti Wolfson will be at the market making a root vegetbale hash with bacon. Come  by to sample her dish, made with market ingredients. The recipe is below if you want to make it at home. The Knife Sharpener is making his monthly visit, so bring those gardening shears and lawn mowers. Spring is coming! 

Lastly, we wanted to ask a favor of our Market shoppers. Please vote for Angel Aviles, the Main Street School  custodian. He’s in the running for the Custodian of the Year and we would love to help him win. He deserves to be nationally recognized for all of his hard work, least of which is going above and beyond for the Market. He ensures the school is open early in the morning for our vendors to set up, he cleans up after so the space is immaculate for students on Monday morning, and does all of it with a smile, even at 7am on a Saturday! Please vote here: https://www.cintas.com/customer_applications/custodianoftheyear/vote-2019.aspx

See you at the Market!
