What a Beautiful Day at the Market!

Andrew was helping out his Mom at Red Haven Farm Meats - he was a handy recruit to ring in the opening of the market.
And the focus of the day was all about corn - delicious, local sweet corn. Taproot Farm and Blueberry Hill Farm had lots of it - got to get to the market early if you want corn - seems like there is never enough to go around.
Vicki Reilly, a force to be reckoned with on our market planning committee, was busy helping the kids plant the EGFM Children's Flower Garden. This little girl was busy in the garden.

 Both she and her brother enjoyed planting their flowers, compliments of Main Line Gardens, in the garden.
And flowers were not just for the young, but also the young at heart! This woman gathered up a beautiful selection of posies from Schaeffer's Flowers.
I'd like to introduce you to a few more of our market vendors. Here's Marie from My House Cookies.
Of course, Marie makes cookies. Marie is from Glen Mills, but bakes in a commercial kitchen in Philadelphia.
 In addition to cookies, Marie also makes a wide selection of pies - delicious pies!!!
Meet Nem from Market Day Canele - they bring the delectable Bordeaux confection known as the canele - a pastry caramelized on the exterior, while almost pudding like on the inside. In addition to canele, they also have a weekly sweet tart and savory tart.
Here's Thais from Dia Doce Cupcakes. Thais makes "regular" cupcakes, as well as gluten free, soy free, lactose free and vegan selections.
 And if you want some of Thais' cupcakes - get to market early!!!
No, Veronica is not holding a cookie - she is holding one of her homemade doggie treats from Veronica's Doggie Delights. 
Stadium Grille was at the market last week and will be making a return visit this week - they were selling lots of ribs and chicken. It's too hot to cook - - - have dinner in the park!
Last week at the market we welcomed two new vendors. Avello Mushrooms from Kennett Square was there selling beautiful mushrooms - unfortunately I didn't get a picture! Lindenhof farms was also at the market for the first time offering poultry and meats - here's Axel and friends from Lindenhof Farms.
The Chester County Food Bank paid us a visit - - - if you missed them they will be back in the fall.
And no market blog post is complete without photos of kids enjoying popsicles.
 And more kids enjoying popsicles!!!
