Westminster Farmers' Market Report for 04-09-10

You Are Making a Difference…

The Westminster Farmers’ Market will be opening on Friday, May 7th! Watch this space and our website for information about a free give-away in the month of May. We already have 20 vendors signed up and I have heard rumors that we will have plenty of asparagus very early in the season! In addition, you will find local meats, cheeses, eggs, artisan breads, and confections. Stop by for a cup of locally roasted coffee and catch up with your friends and neighbors while shopping for the healthiest food available. Try THAT at your big box grocery store!

Dean and Debbie Johnson, along with Ann Patsis, set up a Farmers’ Market table at the Young Children’s Festival a few weeks ago. You can read about it here on our blog!

You may have seen us at the Mount Wachusett Community College Health and Fitness Fair, also a few weeks ago! The fair was well attended and our Farmers’ Market table did attract a lot of attention. I can tell EVERYONE is hungry for fresh garden products this year!

KFC's Atkins Diet Sandwich

 

Guarantied, it's not local food.  But, is it an artery clogger or an item from The Atkins Diet?

KFC has a new menu item, a bacon cheese sandwich, between two slices of fried chicken.

Westminster Farmers' Market Report for 02-12-10

Westminster Farmers’ Market Report from Maple Heights Farm

Super Size Me and My Garden

Come see Super Size Me with me…

This Friday, February 12th, there will be a showing of Super Size Me at the office of Dr. Linda Smith and Associates. This is an interesting movie about a month long journey of one person eating nothing but food from McDonald’s. This free evening promises to be enjoyable with comfortable seating, a room filled with people that are interested in food, great discussions and refreshments. The movie will be at 2 Narrows Road in Westminster, Suite 101A. I hope to see you there!

My Seed Starting progresses...

While we await the warm weather, spring has started in my sunny window

Westminster Farmer's Market Report for 06-26-09

Last week was very busy at the farmers’ market.  We had about 9 booths and they were all hopping throughout the entire afternoon.  The amount of food items is increasing each week both prepared and whole!  I saw some incredible looking prepared sandwiches at Ann Patsis booth – they were meal sized and you may consider stopping by her booth for supper!  We had vendors with beef, pork, kale, swiss chard, salad greens, radish, rhubarb, asparagus, herbs, eggs, Capri goat cheese along with Smith’s country cheese.  Also available: breads (olive, feta, garlic, cinnamon, Finnish, English muffin, hamburger rolls, gluten-free), rhubarb pie and crisp, jam, seedlings, annuals, cakes and cookies.  Read about the nutritional value of Kale http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kale and swiss chard http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kale.  It will definitely make you want to include it at your dinner table!
