Yardley Farmers’ Market Summer Season

 

As we wrap up the second season of our Winter Market, the YFM Team is hard at work planning for the Summer!  The Indoor Winter Market will continue twice a month through March and April, i.e., the 1st & 3rd Saturdays of the month from 9 – 11 AM, at the Yardley Friends Meeting House located on 65 N. Main St in Yardley.

..  We have had fresh eggs and vegetables all winter from our amazing Farmers!  And, we have continued to add great new vendors throughout the winter, most recently Mainly Mushrooms. So check back often, states Don Canepa, one of the 3 volunteer Managers.

The Summer Season will commence on Saturday, May 6th back in Buttonwood Park. with a weekly Market from 9 AM – 1 PM (with the exception of Harvest Day, September 17th).  Opening Day will be a Children’s Day with a really cool Cardboard Pop-Up Playground courtesy of the Yardley Recreation. Board.  We are also planning another Children’s Safety Day on June 3rd with the help of Police Chief Kelley.  The rest of the Entertainment schedule is filling up with weekly events including kids’ activities, live music, and cooking demos. Chef Anthony from Rosa Bianca has signed up for two (2) Chef Demos, with one of them being a Cooking- with- Kids Demo, an idea  we just love!  And David Boyd, a local musician everyone loves, has committed to a once-  a -month appearance June through September.  More to come….

We’ll continue to keep everyone posted through our website (www.YardleyFarmersMarket.com) and Facebook page as plans evolve.  We truely appreciate all the Love & Support we have received from the community.  Please help spread the word!!

See you at the Market, the YFM Team

Sharing a recipe of a dukkah that I got @ this week’s market. Made with almonds and other zesty things, it has a very good texture and taste.

Roasted Cauliflower with Dukkah

Ingredients

1 large head of cauliflower (or broccoli)

2 tablespoons olive oil

kosher salt or sea salt to taste

2 tablespoons Dukkah

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Trim cauliflower florets. Toss with olive oil.

So a little dukkah goes a long way !!
