This Saturday at the market

8 Aug

Chopped salads, platters of crunchy vegetables, hunks of cheese and chunks of crusty bread, sizzling grilled goodness, super sweet fruits. Take the farmer’s market challenge and head to the market with an open mind, an empty basket and see what catches your eye.

We welcome Perry Hill Farm to the market this Saturday. Based in Millbrook, they will bring their sun-powered herbal, glycerin soaps and salves. “We use our own organically grown or wild-crafted herbs. Since 1991, no chemical fertilizers or pesticides have been used on our farm.”

Stop by learn more about the annual Open Studio tours scheduled for mid-October.

Harvest Spirits also make a return to the market. “Our little distillery is a special place where the “lucky” apples go to become immortal, preserved forever in the form of our award-winning vodka, applejack, and brandy.”

Music will be provided by Maggie Seligman.

Dog days of summer…

1 Aug

Be sure to bring your pup to the market this Saturday. Jean Kolor from First Friend Canine Consulting will be at the market to share dog training tips and tricks. She is an amazing trainer who only uses positive reinforcement techniques.

Be sure to bring your kids as well, the Pawling Fire Department will have a couple of fire engines in the parking lot next to the Chamber building.

Continuing our dog theme, Coast to Coast are our vendor of the week. Coast to Coast is one of the market’s original vendors, each week bringing their probably-good-enough-for humans-to-eat dog treats. They’re packed with flaxseeds, peanut butter, cranberries, oat flour, pumpkin, butternut squash, and parsley (mercifully not in one biscuit!). Linda and Jay Bloomer believes that “making healthy organic dog treats (using no corn, wheat or soy) is not only good for dogs, but good for the environment as well. By using pesticide-free ingredients, the land and water remain untainted by chemicals, helping to make it safe for today and for the future.”

We also have a great line up guest artisans to complement our vendors.

There’s something for everyone…

Are you noticing what a great array of produce is available on the market? From mushrooms, to stone fruits, to cheese and bread, meat to vegetables. It’s a great time of year to enjoy the varied and fresh produce our farmers are harvesting for us.

If that wasn’t enough, we also have a wonderful compliment of guest vendors to add a little variety to your Pawling Farmer’s Market tote bag.

  • Nubibinu Soaps specialize in Astragalus Root Soap, their products contain 100% natural ingredients. Cut down on those plastic bottles of shower gel and hand wash and go soap!
  • The Slab Pottery will be showcasing their beautifully designed ceramics. They add a little fun and creativity to any home.
  • Did you sample Broken Bow Brewery‘s ales last time they were here? They make a great range of craft beers, be sure to stop by and give them a try.

 

In the true spirit of ‘there’s something for everyone’, we also have a couple of events to tempt you to the market.

  • Scribble Art for kids make a return with their drawing and coloring workshop
  • Maria Reade will be on hand to give you a 101 on all things related to composting
