A sneak peek ahead to next week – Christmas in July

 Your first stop – pick up all the peaches and tomatoes you can handle at Darmo’s, Spinella FarmCranberry Hall Farm and maybe even Robson’s Farm.

 Durr Farm will have their premium sweet corn for you to grab a few dozen or more………..definitely more!

 Since blueberry season is just getting a running start,  grab them up at Whalen Farms ~ At Simons Berry Farm their mid-season beauties are in.  ………Wait, what?  Yes, they are in!  

 And just like a good fireworks show, 1895 Organic Farm will have lots of color at their table on Saturday with all the kales and beets, carrots, peas, squashes, white sweet onions, sorrel, chard and much more for sure.

 Griggstown Quail Farm has you covered with chicken or turkey burgers, Little Hooves Romneys with lamb chops, MS Food Creations with salmon or crab cakes, and Cherry Grove Farm with the various cuts of grass fed beef and delicious all natural beef/pork hot dogs.

 Speaking of Cherry Grove Farm and since you’re thinking of entertaining, they will have the classics of Herdsman, Havilah, Natural Jack as well as some tasty Summer Market Jacks ~ Cajun Jack is the cheesemaker’s latest, along with Lawrenceville Jack and its blend of New Orleans spice – perfect on a juicy burger!

 Busy Bee Farm will have the first of the Applemint Honey of the season!  Pick up some while it lasts! Great in a chicken marinade.

 After the storm that roared through our county Tuesday night, some of the farmers are still picking up the mess and assessing what they’ll have to bring to the market on Saturday.

 Durr Farm says SWEET CORN IS IN ~ and they’ll be bringing it!! along with collard greens, string beans and wax beans, pickles, cukes and beets.

 Robson Farm has beets, kale, kohlrabi, peas, beans and cabbage.

 Since it’s officially Blueberry Season, The Jersey Farmhouse will have the first of their blueberry products ~ with jams, dessert toppings and pie fillings!

 Spinella Farm will be bringing their cukes, squash, salad mixes, arugula, baby kale, baby spinach, cherries and basil.

 At Davidson’s Mushrooms table, look for great recipes using their 3-mix for mushroom bruschetta.  It’s always a crowd pleaser! Another crowd pleaser, Dave the Fungi, might even tell you a few jokes while you’re there.

 If you’ve ventured out to Hlubik Farms under the silo, you will have seen their colorfully layered, freshly prepared salads from their farm ~ served in a sturdy mason jar. Grab a salad dressing and enjoy right there!

What to look for this Saturday ~

Toni at Busy Bee Farm said that the heat has brought on their lavender bloom, so they’ll have a limited supply of Lavender Bunches available this week.

 

1895 Organic Farm will have their kales, chards, kohlrabi, arugula, limited green zucchini, yellow squash, onions, peas, parsley, oregano and lots of beets.

 

Durr Farm and Robson Farm will both have their tables spilling over with lettuces, 3 kale varieties, beets, sugar snap and shelling peas and green beans.

 

Spinella Farm plans on bringing their sweet Jersey cherries again, kohlrabi, snow peas, scallions, mixed salad greens, baby arugula, baby spinach, baby kale and Swiss chard.  The last of the asparagus is still coming to the market and blueberries are making their debut on Saturday.

 

Make a stop at Davidson’s Mushrooms for those fresh mushrooms for easy and healthy meals that beat the heat on these hot days.

Cherry Grove Farm will be bringing their elusive Dutch Captain Cheese, alpine style but stronger, more sharp and with a creamy texture.  Brie will be at the market at a lower price ~ just as delicious and rich, but not as pretty as usual.  It had some issues in the cave which affected its color. The batches will be bright white next week, so grab some subdued brie this Saturday.

 

Whalen Blueberry Farm makes their debut along the walkway this Saturday!

 

With the weather warming up, this will be MECHA Artisan Chocolate’s last day until things start to cool down.

James Durr Farm will have beets, greens, kale, squash, cucumbers, sunflowers and beautiful cut flower bouquets.

I hope all of you have found Robson’s Farm’s new location inside the barn.  Rose will have shelling peas, lettuces, spring onions, kohlrabi and those hot house tomatoes that always go fast.

Stop by Spinella’s Farm for their mixed salad greens, spinach, arugula, Swiss chard, the last of the asparagus and maybe some cherries!

Along with all of Busy Bee Farm’s local honeys, a very limited number of cut lavender bunches will be available on Saturday.
