Farmers’ Market Has Great Fall Foods
Program on Local Native Americans


Bobolink Dairy & Bakehouse has your favorite local cheese and delicious breads. Make sure to pick some up this Sunday!

Fall is in full swing at our Farmers’ Market! Visit us this Sunday for all your favorite local foods and to support your neighborhood farmers. We’re at the Dvoor Farm, 111 Mine Street on the Flemington-Raritan border from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Here’s what you’ll find at the market:

What’s Happening

Learn about Chief Tuccamirgan and the fascinating history of the Native American Indians in the Flemington area with archaeologist and archivist Jim Wade at our Oct. 21 Farmers’ Market.

In this free presentation beginning at 11 a.m., Wade will take a close look at Chief Tuccamirgan, whose wigwam is believed to have been located on the Dvoor Farm property. The chief became close friends with this property’s earliest white settler, Johan Phillip Case, and is buried in the Case Family Cemetery on nearby Bonnell Street.

Wade will also discuss the regional Native American villages in the area and the Autumn ‘Thanksgiving’ Big House Ceremony.

Wade has worked as a field archaeologist and an archaeological field assistant at several Indian sites throughout Central New Jersey. He also worked as an archivist with the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton, documenting Native American land holdings from the 17th and 18th centuries.

He has taught several courses on New Jersey Indians through the Princeton Adult School and Brookdale Community College. He is a frequent speaker on the Indians at the Washington Crossing State Park Nature Center and gives seasonal presentations on American Indians of New Jersey throughout Central New Jersey.

Our special Farmers’ Market programming is supported by the Astle-Alpaugh Family Foundation. Additional funding is provided by The Tyler Foundation — PNC Charitable Trusts.

Product of the Week

For the past few years, folks have been talking up the benefits of bone broth. Some tout the benefits of bone broth saying it has a long history in Chinese medicine as a digestive tonic; that it soothes inflamed joints, and can induce a more restful sleep because it is rich in glycine, an anti-inflammatory amino acid that works on the Central Nervous System. Still while some trumpet the benefits of bone broth, others question its efficacy.

Why not try some for yourself and see? You can pick some up at the Purely Farm stand at our market to take home! And, if you’d rather do something than sip it out of a mug, take a look at this tasty offering:

Breakfast Soup

What You’ll Need:
2 cups homemade chicken stock
Squeeze or two of fresh lemon juice
Salt
Pepper
1 egg
1 slice good bread, stale or toasted
About ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
Good olive oil

What To Do:
— Heat the stock and lemon juice with a pinch of salt and some ground pepper, covered, until it comes to a boil. Remove the lid and turn the heat to very low, so the pot just barely simmers. Crack an egg into a little prep bowl. Salt it. Lower it carefully into the simmering soup. Use a spoon to fold the whites back in if they seem to spread. Simmer until whites are set, 3 to 4 minutes.
— Meanwhile, put the toasted bread in the bottom of a wide bowl. Sprinkle with most of the Parmesan and drizzle with olive oil. Gently pour the soup out over the bread, using a spoon to keep the egg from breaking. Sprinkle with more Parm, olive oil, and salt, then eat (breaking the yolk to help thicken things).

Serves 1 but can be easily doubled
