What’s New

Come check out The Creature Show at our Oct. 30 Farmers’ Market and meet the director who created this fascinating nature program.

We’ll have three showings of the program starting at 10:30 a.m. in our wagon house with Jared Flesher, an award-winning reporter, photojournalist and documentary filmmaker. Flesher will introduce and briefly discuss The Creature Show episode “Something Scary in the Bat Cave.” This program is free and everyone is welcome to attend. There will also be showings of the program at 11 and 11:30 a.m.

The Creature Show is dedicated to telling the story of threatened and endangered species in the nation’s most densely populated state.

Toadshade Wildflower Farm

Toadshade Wildflower Farm will be having a sale on some of its favorite native plants at our market this Sunday. You can pre-order via email (toadshade@toadshade.com or its website) before 5 pm Saturday  and you’ll get 10% off all Milkweeds, Blue Mistflowers, Halberd-leaved Hibiscus, Red Oak, American Hackberry, Redbud, Osage Orange, Pawpaws and Black Cherries while supplies last.

Purely Farm and Griggstown Farm are now taking pre-orders for their delicious, all-natural turkeys.

Griggstown Farm offers a traditional white-meat turkey and a Red Bourbon turkey. The Red Bourbon turkey is a heritage bird that has not been crossbred to enhance its size. It takes longer to raise and is a smaller, leaner bird with darker meat, but there is still enough white meat to satisfy everyone.

You can also visit Griggstown’s website to order your turkey and all the trimmings.

Purely Farm’s tasty broad-breasted beauties are all pasture-raised and granted the freedom to grow at its own natural rhythm. Purely Farm turkeys will be delivered to our market fresh — never frozen — the Sunday before Thanksgiving.

This Sunday, Purely Farm will feature retail cuts of 100% grassfed Purely lamb at its farm stand. If interested in a bone-in leg, it’s best to pre-order as these luscious limbs tend to walk off with hungry families early in the day! You can do so by emailing purelyfarm@gmail.com or calling 215-317-0889.

Make sure to visit Purely’s farm stand to check out its assortment of pasture-raised pork, turkey and now lamb at this week’s market.

You’ll find this week’s Jersey Fresh Availability Report here.

Recipe

Autumn Salad

If you haven’t tried romanesco, you’ll find it at the Phillips Farms stand. You can roast it with lemon, salt and pepper, or try this delicious fall salad

romanesco-saladWhat You’ll Need:

1 small romanesco
100 ml. red quinoa
250 gr. butternut squash
250 gr. beetroot
1 pear
olive oil
pomegranate seeds
almonds
Vinaigrette:
juice of half a lemon
1 tbs. mustard
1 tbs. honey
2 tbs. olive oil
salt and pepper
What To Do:

— Wash and cook the quinoa in 200 ml. water. It has to cook for 15 min.
— Cut the squash, beetroot and pear in bite size pieces and add a bit of oil and and salt. Put them in the preheated oven at 175 C. degrees (350 F.) The beet roots will make everything pink (you might already know this…) so arrange each vegetable on a try and do not mix them. Keep them in the oven for about 30 minutes, just keep an eye on them after 20 minutes.
— Prepare the vinaigrette: just mix all the ingredients and whisk them a bit.
— Wash and cut the romanesco in small bunches and cook it briefly in salted water. About three minutes would be enough to keep them crunchy.
— Now all the ingredients are ready so arrange them in the serving plate. Serve with the vinaigrette and enjoy!
