Savor the Taste of Summer at Tomato Day!

In this world of uncertainty and woe, one thing remains unchanged: Fresh, canned, pureed, dried, salted, sliced, and served with sugar and cream, or pressed into juice, the tomato is reliable, friendly, and delicious. We would be nothing without it.

POP CLUB
Jenna's Last Day in the POP Tent

Be sure to stop by and say goodbye to Jenna Galvin, this season's POP Coordinator. Jenna did a fabulous job keeping kids engaged all summer long and we will surely miss her creative energy and joyful spirit. We wish Jenna all the best as she heads back to New York City for her second year at Pace University.

This week kids can plant a pot of wildflower seeds. When the flowers bloom they'll be a sweet remembrance of Miss Jenna and all the fun they had this season!

Note: We are seeking a volunteer to coordinate the POP Tent throughout the Fall season. Must be 18 yearsor older. If interested, please email: marketmanager@eastonfarmersmarket.com

Tomato Mini Golf
Only in Easton...

A long time ago... when the Easton Farmers' Market wasn't the bustling, bountiful gathering place that it is today we developed some rather... umm... 'unique' activities to garner attention and lure folks to the Circle. Many of those activities not only caught on, but became weird, wacky, and cherished traditions at EFM. Tomato Mini Golf is one of them.

So grab a putter (we have adult and kid size clubs) and come take a swing at a roly poly red tomato. They're surprisingly good substitutes for golf balls!

Tomatoes compliments of Scholl Orchards. Thanks Ben!
