Happy Father’s Day

If you’re grilling, throw some wings on. Like Irvington resident Aditi Zibu Chang of Handmade by Zibu says “The best wings come from the best chickens, which come from the best farmer!” and Matt from Southtown Farms is definitely one of the best. A marine vet, he turned to farming after his last tour in Iraq with the help of the Farmer Veteran Coalition. Along with his wife and daughter, he raises his animals on a small farm in Mahwah, NJ according to his motto: “You must care for your family, your community, your land, the enviroment, and most importantly the animals that are put into your care.” Happy Father’s Day Matt!

Like a little kick to your wings? Try spreading Chi-Cho Sauce on them. Handcrafted in Astoria, it’s made with fresh, local ingredients and aims to hit the perfect sweet/hot spot without overwhelming your taste buds with fire. Pick up a bottle as gift!

Stone & Thistle Farm also has an array of grilling options including sausages with creative names like the Tony Hawk (made with ramps-get it?) or the Violet Beauregard (made with blueberries.)

Making dessert? Grab some quarts of strawberries and cherries (yes cherries!) from Wrights Farm or one of their pies if you don’t have time to whip up something.

See you at the market!
