Get a Buzz On!
Did you know that bees are hard-working partners who help to pollinate one third of the food we eat? Bees support our farmers by pollinating apples, pears, cherries, strawberries, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, blueberries, squash, melons and more!

Tomorrow we celebrate all that hard work - and the delicious results at our annual June Bee Jamboree!

Our event coincides with National Pollinator Week (June 17-23) and puts honey on center stage. We'll have lots of fun and educational activities for kids, and adults who are interested in bee keeping.

Be sure to ask the market’s Blooms & Botanicals vendors — Backyard Growers, Peace Tree Farm, Pheasant Hill Farm and Holy Cow Farm — for suggestions on bee-friendly plants and flowers that you can add to your home to help improve Pennsylvania’s bee population. 

Don your finest bee attire and come join us for another sweet day in the circle!


What's the Buzz?
This guy KNOWS honey. Join beekeeper Peter Sliwka, aka “honeyman” for a special talk on the challenges of keeping bees in today’s world. You'll find Peter on the south lawn of the circle at 10am..


Ask the Beekeeper
Easton Community Gardens are getting some new helpers! Two new beehives have been added to help pollinate our community garden at Lower Hackett Park (which recently got a new fence and water system with support from the Lehigh Valley Community Foundation and City of Easton). Thanks to volunteer beekeeper Mike Angelo for launching and maintaining these bee hives!

Meet Mike and bring your bee questions to him at the 'Ask the Beekeeper tent' in the inner circle, by the POP Tent!
Participants in the Easton Compost Program can scoop up nutrient-rich finished compost at a giveaway from 9am-1pm behind the Easton Public Market. Just remember to bring a bucket. The Easton Community Gardens program will also be giving away bee-friendly plants at the compost distribution.

Fresh Finds of the Week
FROM THE FIELD
Berry Bonanza at Phillips Farm!
It’s Berry Time at Phillips Farms! Blueberries are making their debut this week, but other berries will also be available including Red Raspberries, Black Raspberries, Currants and Gooseberries. Phillips Farms will also be offering their fresh and locally grown vegetables including spinach, arugula, shelled peas (both in and out of the pod), fennel, spring garlic, and garlic scapes.
Cabbage Throw Farm
Cabbage Throw Farm loves the honey bees! In celebration of June Bee Jamboree, they will have long stem sunflowers available by the bunch and by the stem. New from the garden, bunched orange carrots! They’re small but packed with sweetness. To make them even sweeter, tender and savory, try them roasted with honey from Stagecoach Apiaries, butter from Valley Milkhouse and garlic! Garnish with parsley and toast to the bees.

Other offerings this week include their super crunch, flavor-packed cucumbers, summer squash, baby greens, romaine, beets, herbs and more!
Salvaterra's Gardens
Broccoli and Cauliflower are now available at Salvaterra's! You'll also find lot of Zucchini, Chiogga, red and golden beets and the fixins for great summer salads: spring mix, arugula, green leaf, red leaf or romaine. Kale, chard, collard, and escarole are all on the table too. Or maybe you're in the mood for a little crunch with bok choy, or a wrap made with green or nappa cabbage? They've got parsley, dill, cilantro, and scapes to spice things up. And scallions, hakurei turnips, carrots, radishes and fennel too!





Comeback Orchards
It's pie time at Comeback Orchards, with organic strawberries, organic blueberries and organic Montmorency tart cherries. Because of the late planting they're still picking midseason strawberries, Jewel, Honeyoe and Cabot. The flavor is still good despite the rains, but there is some splitting so you'll have to eat them fast (which shouldn't be a problem). Montmorency pie cherries are coming in strong and are the best flavored of the tart cherries. You'll have to eat or bake them quick too before the birds do. Rosedale Blueberry Farm is picking organic Dukes, the best early blueberry and after last week's sellout we'll be certain to bring more. Should be a small amount of organic raspberries, but get there early they'll sell out quickly
FLOWER POWER
Holy Cow Farm
It's been a wet, muddy, rain gear kind of week! The good news is the flowers have flourished despite all the rain. So, that means this week will be Holy Cow's first week with CUSTOM arrangements! They will still have pre-arranged bouquets, or you can let them put together an arrangement with all your favorite flowers! 
Backyard Growers
The new items this week will be Daylilies (Stella D'Oro), Dianthus (Siberian Blues), Lavender (Purple Ellagance) and a nice selection sun tolerant potted caladium. Caladium are easy to grow plants, but they tend to be fussy about their growing conditions. Primarily, they like heat, plenty of moisture and relatively high humidity. Toxic to dogs and cats!
Pheasant Hill Farm
Pheasant Hill Farm will have bouquets with Long-lasting calla lilies, Asiatics, gladiolus, snaps and so much more! Come welcome summer! (And please don’t do a rain dance🙄)

PorTch Tea will have the regular and some special offerings of kombucha this week. George will be back from his native Ohio with his tales of tornado disaster relief.  
JUST BAKED
Tomblers Bakery
This may be the last week for rhubarb pies. Karen suggested calling the Bakery to reserve one so you don't miss out. 484-515-9968 Look for lots of

SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT
In today's fast-paced society, sleep deprivation has become increasingly pervasive in our demanding daily routines. Whether we lose out on sleep because we don't make it a priority, or due to unwelcome stress, insomnia or sleep disordered breathing, we put ourselves at a growing risk for a number of cardiovascular issues – including high blood pressure, stroke, atrial fibrillation, and heart disease. Click here to read more from Shailendra Singh, MD, FACC interventional cardiologist at Steward Medical Group, about the impact poor sleep has on heart health.

Be sure to visit Easton Hospital’s Cardiac Rehabilitation team at the Market this Saturday to learn about how Easton Hospital’s cardiac rehabilitation program has helped cardiac patients return to the activities they love.
