Yay! The farmers’ market is this afternoon in East Goshen Park. I encourage all my readers to support local farmers whenever possible.
Yes, some of the farmers here are from Lancaster and Berks counties, but you are still supporting Pennsylvania agriculture. I will admit however, that I am disappointed that they don’t have more local Chester County farmers like Farmer Bob from Sugartown Strawberries represented at the market.
And once again, I can and will boycott one purveyor at East Goshen Farmers Market – Birchrun Hills Farm, which is owned by West Vincent Supervisor and lover of Eminent Domain Ken Miller. Maybe if he hadn’t tried to make the Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show Grounds disappear and hadn’t done a lot of other skunk worthy things, I wouldn’t be so tough on his farm. But you don’t have to take my word for it – check out Chickenman or aswestvincentturns on You Tube – Even The Daily Salvo has picked up on the manure stench of West Vincent.
The East Goshen Farmers Market wants to know what we make with our goodies gleaned from the market. From last week’s bounty I made a Rhubarb-Strawberry Crisp. Extra yummy due to a touch of tamarind nectar and a dash of cardamom.
See you at the market!
