The market will open on Thursday, APRIL 25th BUT we will move from last year’s location back to Buck Mountain Episcopal Church, nestled under the canopy of trees in the Parish Hall parking lot. Because of changes taking place in the ‘downtown hub’ of Eville, we found it necessary to move as I alluded to in my earlier post. We are a wandering market but absolutely the best market to find wonderful produce, baked goods, plants, artisan wares, good cheer and community spirit.
I will not be managing the market this season. John Faulknier, our #1 Favorite Vendor for 2011 ( #2 last year) has agreed to step into the role along with his wife Pat. They have been a solid cornerstone to the Earlysville Farmers Market and I do appreciate their assisting me with this position. You will recognize them as our produce and Pork Barbecue vendors. They help make our market one of the most friendly, cohesive markets in the area. We radiate ‘good vibes’! Yes!!! Applications have gone out and soon John will be assembling our merry group.
Come see us, look for our green banner and cheerful tents, smiling faces and wonderful products!! Buck Mtn Episcopal Church can be found at 4167 Earlysville Road. The white w/ red door Parish Hall is just beyond the main Church parking lot on the right.
What to do with all the plentiful veggies from the farmers market or your own garden? Here is another recipe from King Arthur Flour using zucchini but you could also add whatever is market fresh and anxious to be gobbled up in your meal!
Take a look at this unique unusually good yellow squash grown on Lettuce Grow Farm, in Barboursville. Make sure you stop by our market to see all manner of unique produce and fruit. We have the best fresh food in Earlysville!! Lettuce Grow Farm also has Gourmet Lettuce Blend, Beets, Turnips, Radishes, Zucchini, Squash, Cucumbers (first of the season!), Swiss Chard, and hopefully: Onions, Carrots, Kohlrabi & Herbs
There are so many reasons to eat lots of fresh, crisp vegetables and fruit, especially locally grown, as we all know. Vibrant colors, aromatic, so fine to look at, the minerals and vitamins seem to jump out at you. You can taste them as you chew! Remember digestion starts in the mouth, so make sure to chew 50 – 100 times. That is difficult, you really have to concentrate, which means you take your time therefore perhaps it could be a weight loss technique! Naturally veggies have a high water content, so they fill you up and are low in calories so you can eat lots. Fruit does contain more calories and is a simple carbohydrate but imparts quite a lot of healthful benefits. It is much better to eat the whole fruit as opposed to juice because you have the benefit of the fiber. So apparently, as you will read in the article below, when you eat more fruit and veggies, 2 extra servings, you will notice a change in your skin….. you exhibit a healthy glow and we’re not talking radioactive! We’re talking happy skin, which is the largest organ of your body.
The market is in it’s 4th month of the season and we’re chugging along like a well oiled wheel! The weather though HOT, has cooperated in terms of the lack dangerous storms, thank goodness. We have experienced 100 degree days but not much rain and stormy weather. A plus for tent stability and safety!
WE HAVE MOVED, AGAIN! WE ARE NOW LOCATED AT THE PARKING LOT ON YOUR RIGHT JUST AFTER THE INTERSECTION OF EARLYSVILLE FOREST DRIVE / REAS FORD ANDEARLYSVILLE ROAD. Look for our tents in the parking lot on your right down by the grassy area, across from Eville Grill!!
Join us when we usher in the new season MAY 12, at our NEW location, in the HEART of EARLYSVILLE!! YEAH!! Our produce vendors will be the first you see in the line up on MAY 12!!
We welcome new vendors. We hope to attract more PRODUCE vendors, specifically, organic or a wider variety of produce, plants and prepared food ( having the necessary Health Dept permits ). Please contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 434 978 2058
