At the Market This Week

Apple Ridge Farm’s best just got even better! Most of its recipes are heirlooms, like its popular Garlic Radish Dip, handed down with all the classic notes of a 1950s recipe — including store-bought mayonnaise. Apple Ridge says it’s scary to change a popular product, but its aim is to source everything it can on its farm. So Apple Ridge dumped the store-bought and started making its own with its pasture-raised eggs to make the mayo by hand. Now the dip takes better — natural always does!

Bobolink Dairy & Bakehouse  has plenty of beef bones sold by the pound at the special sale price of $3/lb!  Make your own nourishing bone broth!  It’s best if you pre-order via Bobolink’s website. On the website, you can select the shipping option to pick up at our Farmers’ Market.

Comeback Farm is in full summer swing with tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, and squash. Delicious butterhead lettuce, salad ingredient fixings and herbs are still available.

Fieldstone Coffee Roasters: Stay hydrated by stopping at the  Fieldstone stand! Enjoy an icy cold no-calorie, organic, sugar-free coffee or tea, packed with electrolytes and vitamins! Fieldstone is making extra this week to keep market shoppers well hydrated and healthy! Stop over and check out all the different flavors of tea and coffee. Loose-leaf tea will be available in one-gallon bags too!

Neshanic Station Apiaries  will bring a new, plastic-free dish soap bar, made with its honey and wax. This bar cleans your dishes and glasses, softens your hands and is 100% synthetic-free.

Sandbrook Meadow Farm will have lettuce and chard (last week until fall!), green beans, fresh onions, beets, carrots, red potatoes, fennel, summer squash and cucumbers. And wait until you see all their carrots. And if you buy the carrots you might even be able to see better!
