CommUNITY

Dear Shoppers,

The pain of this nation and our community caused by a history of systemic inequality and violence against people of color, cannot be ignored and must be addressed. 

The Greater Easton Development Partnership (GEDP) and its programs, including; Easton Ambassadors, Easton Main Street Initiative, West Ward Community Initiative, Easton Compost Program, Easton Public Market, Easton Garden Works, Special Events & Promotions and the Easton Farmers' Market, will work harder to provide spaces and opportunities for our entire community. We stand with, and support, all those striving for equality for everyone. We are committed to help bring about positive, lasting change. We are listening, we are learning and we are with you.

During these dark times we remain thankful for locally grown food, and for all of you. It is our sincere hope that the Easton Farmers' Market can provide you with a small pocket of joy, and a ray of light that you can carry throughout your week. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Find us at Scott Park, on Larry Holmes Drive from 9am-1pm* (first hour for those at risk, and seniors aged 65+). FREE PARKING - Masks required. Please maintain 6' distance from other shoppers. Dogs not permitted in market area at this time.
Market Musings...
The farmers market in May and early June means one thing for me: rhubarb, the most under appreciated of seasonal vegetables! 

My grandmother had a large patch of rhubarb, and a bite of still hot, freshly baked rhubarb crisp immediately takes me back to late spring in northern Michigan. Now I head to Backyard Growers or Scholl Orchards when I'm searching for rhubarb for pie, coffee cake, muffins, or anything else from my favorite rhubarb cookbook (yes, such a book exists and it is amazing). 

If you're new to this versatile summer delight, stewed rhubarb is an easy place to start. Chop up a few stalks, add a bit of water and sugar to your taste, and cook down on the stove (stirring regularly) until it's a red jammy loveliness. I like it on oatmeal, yogurt, and vanilla ice cream with a dash of vanilla and maple syrup. This year, I'm also impatiently waiting for my rhubarb cordial to finish infusing. One week to go!

In addition to rhubarb, my next market shopping list includes a big bag of spinach from Salvaterra's Gardens, cheese from Valley Milkhouse, and a loaf of crusty bread from Flour Shop Bakery. A modified saag paneer sounds like a delicious way to usher in a summer of fresh greens and other market produce.  - EFM Shopper, Deb Boyer

Vendor Spotlights
Saturday is Strawberry Day at the market...

Strawberries are spring's sweetest, and most anticipated gift. This year it's a simple low-key celebration with the focus on gratitude and the joy of eating seasonally. And like everything else in 2020, strawberry season is a little strange this year. Early varieties got zapped by the Spring cold snaps, and later varieties are slow to arrive. So if you're in the mood for berries, arrive early and head straight to Phillips Farm or Comeback Orchards. And if you like your berries baked in a pie or nestled in a tart or flaky turnover, make a beeline for your favorite bakery!
Grown with Love
Fresh Produce, Plants & Flowers
Comeback Orchards
Certified Organic

STRAWBERRIES!
One sure sign that your strawberries are coming from an organic farm is when the Red-winged blackbirds lay their nest in the middle of the patch. At Comeback Orchards they gladly share the land and a few berries with their feathered friends- this is what helps sustain a healthy ecosystem. Plus they sing to them all day.
Don't worry though, the birds are leaving plenty to pick for market, and it should be another good week for organic strawberries. They're still picking Pete's favorite Earliglo, as well as Jewel and Cabot, both pretty and tasty larger berries. Organic jarred fruit and tomato products will also be available.
Phillips Farms
A 6th Generation Family Farm
Peas, please!! Sugar snap peas and shelling peas will make their appearance at Phillips Farms this week. And you don’t want to miss the strawberries, limited quantities means they sell out early. Some of the additional highlights this week: rhubarb, asparagus, greenhouse tomatoes, broccoli, fennel, spring garlic, golden beets, arugula, mizuna, lettuce, kale, spinach, swiss chard, bok choy, fresh herbs and so much more.
