We celebrated our FIRST ever Tomato Fest last week! All our farmers had their best and most colorful tomatoes on display. We held a tomato contest for PRETTIEST and UGLIEST at market. The winners were voted on and announced by the Eugene Tyler Band in a wonderfully sweet way (here if you would like to check it out).

LISTEN... if you love what we're doing you can VOTE for US through Rural Intelligence's Readers Choice Awards. Here is the link and we are embedded in the FOOD section under the title of FARMERS MARKET. We have a ton of competition, so please give us some support.

[Market is every Saturday, rain or shine. Hours are 9am to 1pm. Corner of 6th and Columbia St.]

Winner for BEST tomato went to Blue Star Farm for this complex and striking beaut!
And market's UGLIEST tomato went to Scarecrow Farm for their beloved Brandywine snowman!
We all agreed though-- it should have been CUTEST tomato and not ugliest because there were no ugly ones at market! Not surprisingly our farmers grow some gorgeous products.
Here are some wonderful things that are coming into season right now at market...

A hand of fennel is no exaggeration! If you're into this vibrant green we have a couple good recipes that are easy and delicious and memorable.
Pears have officially made their debut! You can find them loose or by the quart at Samascott and Red Oak Farm. Or you can grab them baked into a bar at Happy Belly.

The little seckel pears are perfect for pickling or roasting in the oven. If you're looking for a wine to use to poach these pears head over to Hudson Chatham Winery for their recommendation on something that will really stand out.
Enjoy the last of the peppers while you can. We came across a stuffed pepper recipe that we figured you would be able to make with just about ANY ground meat that you can find at market.
PLUS grab a baguette-- eat it fresh at the market and the keep the leftovers for breadcrumbs. Once they're out of the oven, top the peppers with some fresh farmers cheese from Chaseholm Farm or some aged cheese from Rock N Raw. 
Last recipe idea for your weekend menu: a super simple baked steelhead trout with lemon slices and fresh dill. Grab cuts from Hudson Valley Fisheries. Or just grab some smoked trout to top your Sunday toast!
If you love us and stand alongside our history please vote for us as one of the nation's best farmers' markets. Recognition and participation is enough for us, but the cash prizes would be amazing. This means we could expand our community offerings!
Roger and Lenny is performing from 10am to noon. If you've heard them play over the years then you know they bring a fresh perspective to classic songs from the golden era of pop music. They have great harmonies and straighforward arrangements--- all that means? They are a perfect fit for the farmers market!
OM Champagne Tea will be joining us again in guest tent #1 with their delicious kombuchas and golden butters.

Outdoor Fellow is back with their distinctive and soothing candles in guest tent #2. They are making reed diffusers now, which MIGHT mean they will make an appearance at market! Wahoo!
Moons of Aphrodite is back with luxurious botanical oils made from local plants and all crafted by hand. They are in Wayward Lane Brewing's spot this week.
Wild Wild Roots will be back with gorgeously scented and visually stunning goat milk soaps in guest tent #3.
