Plan to eat healthy in 2017? Come to the Farmer’s Market tomorrow!

6 January 2017

Dear Shoppers,

Happy New Year to our market shoppers. We are so glad to return to our “second home” at the Community Center at 44 Main St. Most of your favorite vendors will be there, including the knife sharpeners. So, if your knives got a lot of use during the holidays, bring them in!

We are excited to bring you a new coffee vendor this winter...Bright Light Coffee from Brooklyn. Here is what owners Sarvesh has to say about Bright Light coffee: “Bright Light Coffee is roasted for normal people. We understand that you have a routine, and when you’re rushing out the door to get to work, you want a consistently delicious, well-rounded cup to start your day. We source our beans from growers with a passion for quality, and roast them right here in New York – just enough to bring out the natural sweetness and body.We are a small batch roaster, housed in Brooklyn’s Pulley Collective. Pulley is a co-roasting facility which gives our roasters access to state-of-the art equipment so they can focus on flavor. Our beans come from small farms in Africa and Latin America.”  This week they will be bringing a just-roasted batch of Ethiopian beans…

Also new to the market - Deep Roots Farm from Hudson, NY which specializes in pickled vegetables, salsas, pestos, compound herb butters as well as sprouts. Their green salsa is dynamite and I’ve taken to putting their pickled golden beets in every salad & sandwich I make.

Our new cheese vendor Cooperstown Creamery was a hit at the Dec. 3rd market for its reasonable prices and impressive variety of cheeses. They are back and with us all winter so, yes, it’s safe to get hooked! Also new: Mangalitsa by Mosefund, purveyors of elegant Italian charcuterie – and bacon burgers. Thomas Keller is a big fan. ‘Nuf said.

1-dsc_0063-001And, I’m happy to report that Honey Locust Farmhouse is here this Saturday. Nancy is bringing her quince jams,  wildflower honey, esoteric organic teas and – her elderberry elixir to help ward off colds and flu. She is just back from Messinia Greece where she helped Demetra Bourras harvest and press tons and tons of olives for Kontoulis Olive Oil. They have pictures – and stories,  no doubt.

If your resolution is to eat fewer, and BETTER sweets, consider toffee by La Petite Occasion. They still have gift boxes for those of you spilling gift-giving into the new year.

Since we will have lots of sprouts at the market this week, why not experiment with some open-face Nordic-style sandwiches. Top with poached or smoked salmon (make your own  gravlax with Pura Vida salmon) or farm egg salad and of course pickled beets or watermelon radish. The possibilities are endless…
