Earlysville Farmers Market extends season availability!

apples H pumpkins more eggs more pumps

Our vendors have decided to continue the market for as long as possible.  If our customers keep cominguick , are satisfied with what we offer, and the snow is not too deep, nor the temperature too prohibitive, a few of the vendors will continue to set up in the Parish Hall parking lot where we have been during the 2015 season.

We do have the freedom to set up in the Parish Hall building if the weather does pose a problem.

We should have pumpkins, gourds, apples, root vegetables, grass fed beef and chicken, sweet quick breads and other baked goods. Count on seeing relishes, pickles, salsa and jams as well.  We must not forget our EGGS, lots of eggs!

Week 3 coming up … pictures are forthcoming!

We are having a ton of fun at the Earlysville Farmers Market. 10 vendors thus far, 5 of which have fresh and local produce primarily. Beef, chicken, ham, pork barbecue, vegetarian cuisine and chutneys. Dinner is definitely doable. So swing on in the parking lot at Buck Mountain Episcopal Church Parish Hall parking lot. Stroll through our merry marketeers and let your imagination run wild with dinner plans.

You’ll find dessert also, of course, Cookies, cakes, sweet breads, madeleines, apples, if you’d rather skip the prepared dessert and go simple.

Come by! You just never know what you’ll discover beyond a great time!!

Waxing Nostalgic …. market from the past

 

So here is a taste of nostalgia.   Our set up from , hmmm, maybe 3 – 4 years ago?   In the parking lot at the main intersection in Earlysville, on the right just after passing Earlysville Rd & Earlysville forest Dr / Reas Ford Rd.   Remember??  Yeah, such good memories of days gone by at the market.

So we will set up this year either near the building on either side of the sidewalk or at the very end of the lot.  You’ll see us regardless and hopefully will also see our sign shortly.   Until May 7th!

MAY 7 … will you be there, where?

Less than a month away, the market will open on MAY 7, still on Thursdays but we are returning to an old location, the parking lot just past the intersection of Earlysville Rd and Reas Ford Rd / Earlysville Forest Dr. Back by popular demand!

We hope to see all the Eville Forest residents walk over to check out our bounty and visit with old friends, ahem, our wonderful vendors!

I’ll post a picture from prior years to remind you of our location! Be back soon.

We’re approaching mid season, have you stopped by yet?

We do offer such a wonderful variety of vegetables, color, aroma, sweet, sour and pickled items.   Pies, breads, cookies, tortes, gluten free, sugar free and all butter delights!  Free ranging chicken, barbecue pork, slaws, pesto, gosh you name it and we will provide you with fabulous meal fixings.    Top off with one, two or three of our dessert items too!

Books, soaps, lotions, birdhouses, plants, flowers, crocheted caps, hats and popcorn!

We see more of our former customers every week as well as new ones.  Yes, we are thrilled and lately the weather has been gorgeous.

2 months into the market, weather dominates!

7.3 stormy2 - Copy 7.3 stormy - CopyIt’s summer, the weather is unpredictable,  it seems that difficult weather lands on Thursdays, but I’m sure other markets think their day is the unlucky one, so I repeat, it is summer.   The market this day was dominated by rain, heavy with accompanying thunder and lightening.  We sat in our vehicles for about 20 minutes before deciding to vacate the parking lot.  I witnessed one customer appearing in rain gear and with vigilance rapped on Harold’s truck window.   So a transaction was accomplished in the pouring rain and thunder.  Harold and I ( who wants baked goods in the pouring rain?) then left, leaving John to fend for himself.  Apparently he entertained a few customers and arrived home soaking wet, including the truck interior, which he then employed a hair dryer to dry out .

On a positive, dry note, we welcome back, Lettuce Grow Farm.  They previously vended @ Eville Mkt for 3 yrs so we are so pleased to have them back.    Luscious vegetables, home grown, pesticide free, yummy and nutritious!

So drop by ……. THU 4 -7 pm, we have so much to offer for your healthy meals, including dessert, your well being, garden, satisfaction and smiles galore for a good time if you stop by the Earlysville Farmers Market!!

WE HAVE A DATE!! Are you ready?

The market will open on Thursday, May 1st @ the Buck Mountain Episcopal Church on 4167 Earlysville Road, our location last year.
Come join us. You’ll see our familiar friendly faces plus some new members.
