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!

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!!

Full Steam Ahead! Here are a few pictures from Eville Mkt 2011 Season, including new Vendors!

Our new location is working out very well for the ‘Marketeers’ and the customers. Everyone is pleased. An added BONUS is the wonderful food & drinks from the Eville Grill! A long shot looking down the market with vendors on either side:

One of our new Vendors is John Watts  ( Saddle Hollow Plants 434 823-5809 ) from Crozet, VA, offering a very colorful selection of unusual varieties of Day Lilies as well as house plants.  The Purple Passion Plant is very popular.  Stop by John’s tent to hear an extremely vivid history of his lilies and then take some home with you!

We are pleased to have Marleen Townsend and her daughter, Samara, from Lettuce Grow Farm in Barboursville, VA join us.   They set up a lovely, rich arrangement of their luscious home grown produce, including a rarity, chocolate mint, early in the season !  Please stop by their tent, which is usually down towards the end of the vendor grouping. Next we proudly present our CSA, Rocky Mtn Produce managed by Jason Stager.   You’ll probably see Karen and their daughter Samantha, manning the the tent while Jason tends the garden in Stanardsville, VA.   Karen lovingly make jams & jellies with their berries as well as some baked goods, including Snickerdoodle Cookies on a stick!   Their produce is a very welcome addition to our market, bringing our produce vendors up to a very merry 3
