Weekly Market Notes for January 06, 2011

Hello Market Friends:

Hope your year is off to a good start! Jessie Sosnicki's market note and its hopeful talk of SEEDS makes for a nice beginning to the news:

"Happy New Year everyone! This year marks our 10 year anniversary of growing organically! 2014 will mark 10 years of being Certified Organic! Lots of new ideas for this year and the future as we go full steam ahead! Ben and I are cleaning up the farm office, getting the new binder ready for 2011's growing season! Seed catalogs litter the house and the best Christmas gift I got this year was a huge bag of my late grandfather's Shepherd Pepper seeds from my uncle! He carried on the tradition of saving Grandpa's sweet gems and now that they have retired from farming, it is my job to grow Grandpa's sweet red Sheps and save the seeds! This year marks the first year I intend on making the time to save seed, enough for our farm and to share with urban gardeners for 2012.
It is also a great time of year to talk with Ben at market about crops or certain varieties you'd like us to grow!
With awesome heat from the wood stove in the barn we are grading out our own Red Potatoes, Yellow Potatoes, Onions, Red Cabbages, Green Cabbages, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots & Beets for this week's market. Food is plentiful too: Vegan Cabbage Rolls with our tomato sauce, cabbage, onions & sweet peppers and loaded with garlic & flax! Lots of wholewheat Perogies (regular too!). I've been rendering down onions in sunflower oil and butter until sweet and soft with sea salt and pepper, then popping in the FROZEN perogies, covering and cooking on low, pretty much steaming them and they puff up, stay soft and are ultimate comfort on a cold winter day! And yup, lots of tubs of unpasteurized sauerkraut to rev up your guts for the new year! May everyone have a great New Year filled with good health & good food! Cheers, now back to work we go!!" Jessie & Ben

from Sandy: Best Wishes for Health and Happiness in this New Year!
Beretta Specials for January 6:

  • Pork Spareribs and Tenderloin
  • New York and Rib Eye Steaks

Along with Berettas, we'll have lots more vendors back, including Greenfields with abundant winter vegetables, Country Meadows with eggs, olives, oil and cheeses, and our bakers with bigger batches of Park Bread. You'll find the garage as well as the rinkhouse full, probably with a couple of vendors outside, too, as the forecast looks mild.

See you at the market!
