It's officially STRAWBERRY season!

This Toni Morrison quote has always encapsulated a bit of bittersweetness: "I only have to break into the tightness of a strawberry, and I see summer- it's dusk and lowering skies."

There is something magical about the first few pints we gather and gobble up. These little berries are the earliest to emerge and a reminder that our growing region is filled with culinary wonders.

They are like a little tap on the shoulder that reminds us to breathe deeper and easier and revel in the sweetness of summer. We love these early days!

[Market is every Saturday, rain or shine. Hours are 9am to 1pm. Masks and distancing are recommended regardless of vaccination status.]
Berkshire Mountain Bakery will have loaves and loaves of freshly-baked sourdough. Their sesame loaves, onion loaves, and baguettes are absolutely fabulous!
Cedar Flower Farm will have an abundance of bunches! Flowers of many shapes, sizes, colors, and scents, all ready for you to gather up and take home. There are few things better than a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers to brighten your spirits. Check out the sweet peas, the herbs, and (possibly) peony.
Scarecrow Farm (chicken), Martin Farms (chicken), and Northern Star Farm (chicken and duck) will have eggs. We came across a couple curd recipes that seem easy enough to recreate and will be great in beating the heat this week. Here they are: strawberry lemon curd, old-fashion lemon curd bars, grapefruit curd tart, and butter cookies filled with lime basil curd. If you decide to make any of these share a picture at our Instagram page!
Last week we welcomed Shaker Creek Farm to the market! They will be a weekly vendor from here on out. They will have herbs, flowers, chicken (always frozen, sometimes fresh) of different cuts, and more.
Hudson Valley Fisheries will be at market with their smoked and fresh steelhead trout. If you don't know much about their process we recommend stopping by their website to learn more. They are growing the most sustainable fish in the area with a self-contained system that encourages the health of their trout with a much shorter supply chain.
Hany's Harvest will have their delicious fire and earth ciders. If you haven't had them yet our recommendation would be to try them all. Each one taste so different and brings forward the unique qualities of the ingredients they use. These types of herbal decoctions and ferments are great for your immune system and your gut.
This Saturday we are welcoming Momemade as one of our guest vendors! Their dog treats are made with limited ingredients which is good for your pups with allergies or sensitive bellies. Made by a local dog-mom these biscuits are well loved because they are crunchy, made with peanut butter and pumpkin, and vegan.

Their tent will be the hit of the market with our four-legged friends!
We are also welcoming Shaker Museum for a weaving workshop and Woodstock Film Festival to share what they have on their film programming this summer!

Joe Tobin, songwriter for Acoustic Medicine Show, will be performing in the lower lot. AMS has been a regular staple at the market for many seasons and we are thrilled to be welcoming Joe back. Check out their 7 albums on Spotify or any streaming service.
