The cooler temps and shorter days are signaling the end of the regular season Farmers Market. We have had a wonderful run of good weather and our vendors have kept up a super supply of fresh and local goods each Friday. Fortunately this does not mean the end of the Farmers Market, just a slight change in schedule. Look for the Winter Farmers Market to begin next Friday and continue on the First and Third Fridays of each month through April, from 2 – 4 pm in the same location. If you have not been to the Winter Market in the past, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at all the fresh and local items available year-round.
Rex Farms Orchards are new to the Kennett Square Farmers Market and will be with us through the Winter. They bring an array of homegrown apples as well as apple sauces, apple juice. apple cider (until Christmas), and apple and pumpkin butters! In addition, there will be red, white and sweet potatoes, onions (candy, red sky, sweet spanish, red and white cippolini), and swiss chard (until the frost gets the best of it- could be sooner than later). They carry an amazing variety of apples – rome, stayman, fuji, gold delicious, cameo and goldrush. Their apples are stored in controlled atmosphere storage where the oxygen is drawn out of the room, preserving the apples so that when each bin is pulled out of storage to sell at market the apples are in the same condition as the day they were put in.That allows them to offer fresh apples well into May or whenever they run out. Down To Earth Harvest will have a diverse array Asian greens that are perfect for stir-fry or to add to soups. Also find kohlrabi, lemon grass, Thai chiles, mushrooms, celeriac, mustard greens, scallions, leeks and eggs.
