Fresh & Local for Father's Day!  


Happy Father's Day from the Scholl Family!

Get an early start on Father's Day and spend Saturday in the Circle with Dad or Granddad. Enjoy breakfast or lunch together, listen to some local tunes, and take Dad on lap around the market and let him pick out all his favorites - perhaps some jerky from Breakaway Farms, or maybe a cold beer from Shawnee Craft Brewery. And if you have little ones in tow, you can enjoy a puppet show together!

If you're treating Dad to dinner this weekend, we've got some fabulous steaks, burgers and sausage to toss on the grill, alongside fresh veggies like spring onions, squash, scapes and asparagus. How about a bottle of Eight Oaks' new bourbon or a bottle of wine from Tolino Vineyards? And don't forget some sweets... cherries have arrived and there will be fresh fruit pies, and danish - perfect for Sunday morning brunch, or Pop's breakfast in bed!

We're having a Father's Day T-Shirt Sale too - all mens' and unisex tees, $2 off!

See you in the Circle!

The Jones Girls

Karen and Amy Jones are sisters, singers, and songwriters known for their melodic vocal lines and tight harmonies. Both classically-trained vocalists, they traded opera arias for acoustic guitars and perform as a duo and with the award-winning Bethlehem-area rock band, The Beautiful Distortion, in the northeastern United States. Two songwriters with very different styles, Karen and Amy treat audiences to a diverse collection of melodic and harmony-heavy songs ranging from hooky pop-rock to dark, dissonant ballads. Fans draw enthusiastic comparisons to Tori Amos, Alice In Chains, the Indigo Girls and Ann and Nancy Wilson from Heart.
