June Bee Jamboree!

"For bees, the flower is the fountain of life;
For flowers, the bee is the messenger of love."
   -Kahlil Gibran

It takes an average worker bee five to six weeks just to produce one-twelfth of a teaspoon of honey. Easton Farmers’ Market is celebrating that hard work - and the delicious results with June Bee Jamboree this Saturday!

What's Happening...

Our event coincides with National Pollinator Week (June 18-24) and puts honey on center stage. Pennsylvania’s Honey Queen, as well as the American Honey Queen, will join us and share information on beekeeping, display a mini hive, offer sweet recipes, kids crafts and honey sticks. Their tent will be a designated POP location for kids so be sure to have your little ones stop by and earn a bee sticker and a $1 in POP buck.

Kids (and pups) can dress in their bee best for the day, and attend a Honey Bee Tea Party and special storytime with the Honey Queen at 11 a.m. ($3), or take part in the June Bee Parade at noon (free). In the event of rain, the tea party & parade will be held inside the Easton Public Market.

Stagecoach Orchard Apiaries’ “Honey Man” Peter Sliwka will host a beekeeping demo at 10:30 a.m. And Guest vendor Tassot Apiaries will sell their honey, beeswax candles, soap, lip balm and other products. And Shawnee Craft Brewing Company will feature its Apiarius honey ale at the Local Libations tent.

Plus live music for kids with Miss Maggie Sings, prize giveaways, and $5 off all canvas Bee Totes!


SAVE THE BEES
National Pollinator Week is a time to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what you can do to protect them. Eleven years ago the U.S. Senate’s unanimous approval and designation of a week in June as “National Pollinator Week” marked a necessary step toward addressing the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations.

A Sweet Surprise

Salvaterra's Gardens will debut a brand new product this week. In fact it may be a first for the EFM (at least for the past decade). We're talking about English Shelling Peas! Encased in the beautiful shell that nature created for them, these little beauties are worth every minute of preparation. In fact there's something wonderfully meditative about shelling them, especially if you're doing it with the one you love.

Scholl Orchards
Summer's Bounty

You'll find broccoli and cauliflower aplenty this week at Scholl's. Along with beautiful zucchini, and crunchy, just-picked cucumbers. But that's not all! Sweet cherries are here and ready for summer snacking. And if you get there early you can snag some apricots!
