Saturdays 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
On the Riverfront at Scott Park, 128 Larry Holmes Drive
Join us for Chile Pepper Day!

We have a challenge for the bravest and boldest — try to eat your way through 10 of the world’s hottest peppers in our annual Hot Pepper Eating Competition. Okay, so most, shall we say, 'normal' people would never do this, but it's really fun to watch other people do it!

Our 12th Annual Hot Pepper Eating Competition will start at 10:30 a.m. on the Scott Park stage. The 2019 winner, Chris Anastasides, is returning to defend his title, alongside the 2019 runner-up, Kelly Joel Myers. It was a fierce battle between those two in 2019, but in our opinion, the one to watch is Farmer Dean Buttacavoli from Cabbage Throw Farm. He came in fourth in 2019 and is determined to win this year. (Yes, we're definitely biased.) The competition will take contestants through a slow, ever-mounting burn beginning with the friendly little cherry bomb and culminating with the world’s hottest pepper, the Carolina Reaper. The man or woman who devours the whole lineup without waving their milk flag of surrender, will walk away with a trophy, $50 gift card to Easton Public Market, $50 in Easton Farmers’ Market tokens, a variety of hot sauces and sriracha, ShawneeCraft beer, swag and more. Spectators will be entertained by emcee Steven Schmid, who will offer spicy trivia and prizes for the audience. Expect some surprises along the way too!

If you are daring enough to enter it's not too late - register here!

Enjoy a variety of hot, spicy, sweet and unique peppers this week at Phillips Farms, Cabbage Throw Farm, Scholl Orchards and Salvaterra’s Gardens. And be sure to check out the Chile Day specials at Breakaway Farms and Pie+Tart, and don't miss the grilled sweet corn, empanadas and tacos at Tierra de Fuego! And guest vendors - Fraktured Sauces and Harball Cider! It's also Lafayette Days in downtown Easton so be sure to give a warm welcome to all the leopards at the market.

Eat with the Seasons
Cheddar & Jalapeno Biscuits
Jalapeno peppers are at the low end of the Scoville Heat scale but will still add a nice kick to your recipes. These flaky cornmeal biscuits go great with a steaming bowl of chili or a big dinner salad.

Pro Tip: The more little white lines and wrinkles in a jalapeno, the hotter it is. A jalapeno with a bright smooth wrinkle-free surface will be much milder.
From the Field
Cabbage Throw Farm
Chile Pepper Day is here! Cabbage Throw Farm pepper line up includes poblano and anaheim peppers, which are both very versatile peppers with mild flavor and heat, Shishito peppers, a Japanese frying pepper (one in ten peppers being spicy!) and Sweet Italian Carmen peppers and colored bell peppers will also be available. Although no hot peppers will be making an appearance, Farmer Dean will be testing out his heat tolerance at the Chile Pepper Contest! Other produce available this week includes eggplant, beefsteak and roma tomatoes, carrots, beets, turnips, radishes, escarole, herbs, Comeback Farm pears and more.
Salvaterra's Gardens
This week's highlight is beautiful certified organic asian pears from our orchard! Each week, I'm surprised by the number of people who've never had an Asian pear and ask what they taste like (so hard to describe because they're unique unto themselves!). Or the people who ask me if they are similar to the big softball asian pears you spend a fortune on at the grocery store (um NO, our Asian pears actually taste like something!). Imagine if a pear and an apple and a watermelon had a baby... ok maybe don't imagine that lol. But the result of that combination of fruit genetics would be sweet, aromatic, juicy, crisp, refreshing and absolutely delicious. 

Saturday's full line-up includes: lettuce mix, arugula, kale, collards, head lettuce, scallions, red beets, carrots, green cabbage, red cabbage, onions (red, sweet walla walla), leeks, red potatoes, gold potatoes, slicing tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, cocktail tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, cilantro, parsley, dill, leeks, poblanos, jalapeños, bell peppers (red, orange, yellow) and sweet Italian frying peppers (red and yellow), apples, and pears.
Phillips Farm
Concord Grapes are at Phillips Farms this week! These flavorful and aromatic grapes with their famous robust taste make them one of the most requested grapes of the season. They are perfect for making grape jelly, grape juice and simply eating for snacks.  More of our famous Apple Cider and Honeycrisp Apple Cider will also be available this weekend. Other fruit you’ll find at Phillips Farms: Asian Pears, Raspberries, Seedless Watermelon, Peaches (almost the end of the season!), and many varieties of apples including Honeycrisp, Gala, Fuji, Gingergold, Autumn Crisp and Crimson Crisp. Vegetables you won’t want to miss include: broccoli, cauliflower, fennel, brussels sprouts, corn, Jersey tomatoes, green beans, cucumbers, eggplant, peppers, zucchini, carrots, kale, beets, onions, garlic and more. There will be plenty of Jalapeno’s, Serrano’s and Habanero’s for Chile Pepper Day. And don’t forget to pick up your fresh Eucalyptus bunches! 
Scholl Orchards
Fresh pressed cider arrives this week at Scholl's, along with Crimson Crisp and Fuji apples. And... your market manager's favorite - CANARY MELONS; don't miss this sweet, late season delight!

Holy Cow Farm
Dahlia season is in full swing at Holy Cow Farm. These flowers are a tricky crop to grow in Pennsylvania, but Holy Cow currently has several varieties blooming that will be making appearances in the market bouquets. They're farmer Bryan's favorite flower, and we know you'll love them too. They come in so many shapes, sizes, and colors, there's something for everyone. They pair beautifully with some of the darker fall foliage and provide the perfect pop of color to an elegant bouquet. Come check them out for yourself this Saturday!

Guest Vendors
Fraktured Sauces
From Seed to Sauce
There's no way that Fraktured Sauces was gonna miss Chile Pepper Day! If you've never stopped by their tent, this is the week to do it. Fraktured is NOT your typical hot sauce company. First of all, they grow all their own peppers on their own farm - Goshenhoppen Run Farm. Secondly, these are some of the most unique sauces we've ever tasted - with complex flavor combinations, and no thickeners or extracts. Fraktured sauces are filled with the entire pepper (no stems of course) and often complimented by other veggies and herbs. Choose from Sumac Daddy, Twisted Ginger, Hot Shiitake, Firehaus Garlic, Pipicha Verde (your market manager's fave), and more!

PRO TIP: Stock up for holiday gifts and stocking stuffers.
Hardball Cider
Swing for the Fence!
It's apple season - the perfect time to enjoy a cold hard cider!
