Blue Skies - Nothing But Blue Skies

The weather forecast for East Goshen Park July 14, 2011 - clear blue skies and 84 degrees!!! A perfect farmers' market day!

This week at the market we're welcoming 2 new vendors: Avello Farm and Lidenhof Meats.

Avello Farms hails from Kennett Square and will be bringing a delectable array of mushrooms to our market including portabellas, baby bellas, shiitake, maitake, oyster, wine caps and, yes, fresh white mushrooms. They also offer a variety of marinated mushrooms.

Axel Lindenhof of Lindenhof Farms brings to the market something we've been sorely missing - chicken, turkey and eggs. In addition to poultry Lindohof also has beef, pork and lamb available - pasture raised, grass fed, no antibiotics, no additives.

Come Hungry to the Market - Stadium Grille will be preparing a healthy selection of dinner options for you including delicious wraps and salads. We'll have plenty or picnic tables for your dining comfort, sunny or shady - you pick the spot. Meet old friends for dinner or make new friends over dinner!

Bring the kiddies - we need to finish planting the East Goshen Farmers' Market Children's Garden this week - we had a bit of a rain delay last week!

We do have some specials this week offered by our vendors:

Shellbark Hollow
To celebrate Bastille Day stop by and try our Provencal Chevre Spread with a swirl of olive oil or our Herb de Provence marinated chevre.  Both are great with crusty baguette.
Dia Doce
Thais has baked up some delicious Salted Caramel, Pina Colada, Plum, Fudge Creme, Gluten Free Elvis, Vegan Berry cupcakes.
Made in the Shade
Aldo will be making yummy, refreshing cucumber-mint, blue-peary, ginger-peach, and "classic" lemonade.  Stop by and enjoy a glass!
Taproot Farm
George and Ola have been busy picking delicious cherry sungold tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes,
baby summer squash, tender green beans, and much much more!

Market Day Canele 
Market Day Canele will be back with their mouth-watering canele. In addition they will be bringing a selection of sweet and savory tarts made with local ingredients.

The Chester County Food Bank will be on hand to share some very important information with market attendees. The Chester County Food Bank is the hub of a network of over 65 food cupboards and feeding sites. Your donations of TIME, FOOD and MONEY go directly to help the people in Chester County - stop by their booth to learn more!

We'll be welcoming more new vendors to the market next week including Good Spoon Seasonal Foods and Golden Valley Coffees. Stay tuned for more information.
