To Market, to market

Posted by Jennifer

At the Green Barn, it is pretty much all roots, all the time -- give or take a few apples and cabbages.

Many of the regular vendors are instead selling products made from their crops -- cider, jams, small-batch milled flour. The Sosnickis, who are well-known at several markets for their tomatoes, still have some onions and cabbage, but are also serving up perogies, both cooked to eat on site or frozen to take home. They also offered up news that they are starting to grow more tomato plants in their greenhouse (about 900 plants), so tomatoes will arrive at market sooner this year.

There are more egg and meat vendors than usual at any summer market. Among them, the Belangers (East Lynn, Liberty Village) offer samples of the meat pies they sell frozen. They also have lamb and beef. Green Gate Farm  (Sorauren and others) sells both beef and pork.

ChocoSol, St. John’s Bread, Evelyn’s Crackers and Fish Shack are among the Saturday morning favorites. Lifting everyone’s spirits, there is a great string band.
