It was a beautiful afternoon to visit the East Goshen Farmers Market. It was sunny and the temperatures were perfect….and the market was mobbed with people young, old, and in between! It was so packed that by the time I arrived at a little after 4 pm a lot of the vendors were running out of product or had run out of product.
I met my first East Goshen Supervisor today, a really nice man named Carmen R. Battavio, who also happens to be a bee keeper and a whiz with honey (Carmen B’s Honey). I bought some of Carmen’s honey (and have already tasted it and it is terrific), and he told me that East Goshen is a great place to live, work, and play. (And to my Radnor Township followers, as it is told here in East Goshen, many moons ago someone in Radnor borrowed East Goshen’s slogan – imitation being the sincerest form of flattery and all that good stuff.) It was nice to visit with Carmen and his Queen Bee, Karen.
I also saw Laura of Laura’s Biscotti, whom I had met before through my friend Sandra who used to run an organic foods and produce company called Panache Foods. I am familiar with Laura’s biscotti, and today we came home with some of her granola.
We also stopped at Zsa’s Gourmet Ice Cream and Dia Doce Cupcakes and Blueberry Hill Farm for some veggies. My last stop was Pureblend for something my friend Nicki would be thrilled – Matcha Green Tea.
I can’t wait for next week!
