St. Patrick's Day!

The bad news is greens will be in short supply this week as the cold weather has slowed production at Asbury Village Farm. Robyn and Steve promise to be back on March 25th. 

The good news is that if you're looking for sweet and savory delights to celebrate the wearin' o the green, then you're in luck! You'll find all the ingredients for a hardy Colcannon, or that must have corned beef and cabbage. Don't miss the Irish Soda Bread and scones at Flour Shop Bakery. And be sure to stop by Valley Milkhouse for some farm fresh butter or creme fraiche to compliment those Irish treats. Hmm, and how about some herbal tea from Fieldstone too! 

This week's vendor line-up includes:
  1. Breakaway Farms
  2. Easton Salsa Co.
  3. Fieldstone Coffee Roasters & Tea
  4. Flour Shop Bakery
  5. Primordia Farm
  6. Purely Farm
  7. Scholl Orchards
  8. Stagecoach Apiaries
  9. Valley Milkhouse
