A Honey of a Farmers’ Market Sunday

Have we got a sweet Farmers’ Market planned for you this Sunday, July 7!

Our special product this week is honey. Local honey offers the benefit of helping combat seasonal allergies because it contains pollen specific to your area.

Besides, it’s just plain delicious, and tastes wonderful in this chicken barbecue recipe:

The Land Trust special this week is from Tassot Apiaries where you will receive 10% off their pure beeswax candles. If you’re a Land Trust supporter who’s contributed in the past year, please stop by our tent to pick up your special offer.

Also, Sweet Valley Farms will be bringing corn to the market for the first time this year.

Other happenings:

Bring the kids to the market because they are going to love the children’s activities we have lined up for them. The River Valley Waldorf School will be offering children’s crafts. Also teaching artist Kimberly Cheifer, of Art Journey Studio, will offer a free art activity to children of all ages involving hand-painted fabric, yarn, gluing and coloring. There will also be a drawing to win a children’s art lesson with Cheifer, who teaches art classes out of her home studio in Annandale. You can read more about her at her art education website.

Macheis Wind will perform under the music tent. You can learn more about them by visiting their website.

Don’t forget to “Build a Breakfast” using fresh market ingredients. For example, try: coffee from The Coffee Scoop, raisin bread from Apple Ridge Farm, honey from Tassot Apiaries, an apple from Phillips Farms and ricotta from Fulpers Farm (spread honey on the bread, dip the apple in ricotta).
