Down To Earth selling veggies

       When shopping for fruits and vegetables, often consumers opt for “organic” even though the products might have been shipped from California.  Barbara Kingsolver, author of the book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, has a great point regarding buying local versus transported produce, saying it’s about “as efficient as driving from Philadelphia to Annapolis and back in order to walk three miles on a treadmill in a Maryland gym.”  While choosing organic foods over “conventional” products helps reduce issues with pesticides in the ecosystem, transporting food across the continent causes even greater environmental issues due to fossil fuel consumption.  Another reason to BUY LOCAL!!

    strawberry Strawberry Season is upon us and we all know that the berries are the very best right now!  You’ll find tons of strawberries at market this week and next week join us in celebrating STRAWBERRY WEEK!  Look for all sorts of strawberry items for
sale and some special activities, as well. 

Remember that the market is held rain or shine,  2 pm to 6 pm every Friday afternoon from May through October. Parking is conveniently available in the municipal garage off of North Union Street.  Pass this newsletter on to other interested folks!  They will thank you!

See you at Market!

Nomadic Pies at Market 

     Molly Johnston refers to her “Dangerously Delicious” pies as mobile and sustainable, made with the finest and freshest locally sourced ingredients.  The Nomadic Pie truck will be selling sweet pies and quiches at Market this week, after sharing delicious samples last Friday.   Molly’s truck has running water, electricity, and a “proofer” so that she can create her fantastic pies right on board.   

      Look for savory pies, such as Spicy Chicken Cilantro, Steak Mushroom Onion and Gruyere, or Hot Rod Potato.   The quiche menu includes classics like Ham and Cheese or Roasted Veggie, plus unique titles like the “Cowboy” and “Cowgirl”.  We’ll have to see what that involves?   Then there are the sweet pies – fruit, custard, and traditional flavors including Key Lime, Sweet Potato and Chocolate Cream.  What more could we ask for?
