(From Jim Eisenstein)

Tuesday’s market will present a nice combination of traditional products and recent seasonal items.  Tomatoes are becoming more abundant, augmented by the return of Mothersbaugh Farm with both tomatoes and herb seedlings to plant.

  • Harold Krieder’s hot house tomatoes are also still available in quantity. Way Fruit Farm hopes to bring some sweet cherries.
  • Jade Family Farm will have both red and black currants, along with snow and snap peas, carrots, beets, lettuce, and greens.
  • Beiler Family Farm still has rhubarb to go with beets and other vegetables.
  • Patchwork’s tomatoes are starting, and it has cukes, sage, and flowers too.
  • Eden View’s kitchen will be back open with a variety of prepared foods along with zucchini and Alisa Craig onions.
  • Gaffron’s will feature lemon cake and
  • Bee Kind Winery its Bee Fruity wine to use as a base for your summer sangria.
  • Ardry Farm will have red onions.
  • Piper’s Peck will feature strawberry rhubarb and raspberry preserves.
  • You can get this season’s new batch of feta cheese from Clover Creek and their Scary Monster Munster.
  • Bylers Goat Dairy has a fine garlic and herb chèvre.

These are just a few of the items our vendors will bring to market.  Steve Crawford will play and sing  from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m.  All in all, coming to market promises to be a pleasant way to spend a summer afternoon.  As always, ample, convenient, free parking, 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the PA Military Museum in Boalsburg.
