8/19/17 Blairstown Farmers’ Market Specials
This Saturday, 8/19, is Samples Day at the Blairstown Farmers Market. Stop by and enjoy tastings from our market vendors.
LL Pittenger Farm has lamb in a variety of cuts. It’s been awhile since we have had some and now we will have it for the rest of the farmers’ market season.
Heaven’s Gate Llama Farm will be at this week’s market with beautiful handspun, hand-woven and knitted one-of-a-kind llama and alpaca creations for the cool weather to come–last day this year!
Somethin’ Pumpkin: We will be introducing our coconut bread this weekend.
Arena Farm: Don’t forget about the melons!
Kimball’s Farm: New this week, we have yellow beans! Also, as usual, we will have our chemical-free head lettuce and cut baby lettuce!
Top of the Mountain Honey Bee Farm will raffle off a 1 lb. jar of honey each week at the #BlairstownFarmersMarket. Stop by their tent and enter this free drawing.
Each week, the Foodshed Alliance will have a LocalShare It! Basket at our tent. We invite market visitors to:
1) Buy a little extra each week at the market to donate to LocalShare.
2) If you have a home garden or backyard chickens and more veggies or eggs than you can use, bring your surplus to the market and put it in the LocalShare basket.
At the end of the market day, volunteers will deliver these fresh-food donations to local food pantries to feed those in need.
Empty Bowls Project: As part of the Blair Academy Day of Service, students designed and created beautiful food-grade ceramic bowls as a hunger awareness fundraiser for Foodshed Alliance’s LocalShare project. Stop by at the Foodshed Alliance tent and check them out. Suggested donation: $10 to $15.
SNAP benefits are accepted at the market! Before you shop, stop at the Foodshed Alliance tent to process your purchase.
