I was reminded once again how many critters we have close by in our woods. This is one of the yearlings. She is completely unfazed by humans. I do not feed the deer, but this was NOT taken with a zoom lens. I was just that close. truthfully it was kind of a cool, peaceful experience.
Of course this made me think of Sunoco Logistics again too. Our wildlife deserves to be protected from them and their pipelines, fracking, and drilling too. Please contact your elected representatives today, gubernatorial candidates in Pennsylvania, and the Public Utility Commmission.
They will feature BBQ recipe handouts, special surprises, fabulous food and produce and a COOKBOOK SWAP! (Sorry but I am madly excited to go to a cookbook swap!)
The deal with the cookbook swap is bring cookbooks that are gently used but in good enough condition to go to a new home. Bring any food-related books that you’re ready to trade – cookbooks, foodie memoirs ,cooking reference books. Add them to the table. In return, take your pick from books others have brought. Each home chef is welcome to take as many books as they bring is the unwritten rule of cookbook swaps.
Cookbooks are EXPENSIVE and a lot of the cool ones are out of print, so I hope this becomes a regular market feature here.
4th of July is not just about celebrating America’s birthday and our freedoms, it is also a time of family, fun, friendship, and community. So why NOT head out to the East Goshen Farmers’ Market? If you are usually working it is a great way to check it out, if you are feeling like you want someone else to bring that little something something to a BBQ or picnic or cook out, why not either check out the amazing produce or maybe find something already prepared to contribute? Or just come to hang out at a community activity at probably the best municipal parks in multiple counties?
PLEASE NOTE THE MOST UP TO THE MINUTE UPDATES FROM THE EAST GOSHEN FARMERS’ MARKET ARE ALWAYS FOUND ON THEIR FACEBOOK PAGE! LIKE THEM TODAY!
And I have to say a shout out is in order to Heidi, East Goshen’s market manager and her crew of volunteers. They have done an amazing job fixing a market that some might say was deliberately left in a shambles following the purple huff departure of the former market managers. And they are all so pleasant, welcoming, and helpful. They want you to have a good market experience.
The layout of the East Goshen market is fabulous and welcoming – you can stroll along as if you are in a more European style market and every week it gets better and better. I am also discovering a lot of my favorite vendors from West Chester Growers Market and the West Chester Artisans Market are calling East Goshen home on Thursdays. As a matter of fact, check out West Chester Patch this morning for a great article about one of the shared producers, Sunny Slope Farms:

This is the peak time of year for buying fresh and local summer produce. One Lancaster County farm has a unique “community” business model that puts some of the freshest fruit and veggies on West Chester and other area tables every week.
Laura Kicey is a particular favorite of mine – I met her way back when we were both photographing the demolition of Addison Mizner’s La Ronda in 2009 and I have followed her work here and there ever since. I am honored to be considered good enough to show with the fabulous photographers that Thomas Realty Partners chose to do this!
I love antiques shows. Great place to educate your eye at a minimum. (Unless you have a bottomless checkbook or just don’t care, show prices are generally marked up.) This week is the Chester County Historical Society’s Antiques Show – I am very psyched to go!
