October 11, 2009

The Bath County Farmer’s Market on Saturday, October 10, 2009 will feature local produce picked for you!

New market hours! 9 AM to 1 PM!

Mark your calendar for the last market of the 2009 season on October 24, 2009! Plan to come help the vendors and our community celebrate Fall and the end of a beautiful summer!

The market is the perfect place to start shopping for that one of a kind Christmas gift!

Regular Vendors will return with plentiful late summer garden fresh produce including pumpkins, gourds, butternut squash, hubbard squash, yellow squash, potatoes, green beans, green peppers, hot peppers, possibly tomatoes, and more.

Baked goods abound.

Salty and Sweet nothing can beat pie! Apple, cherry, blueberry, peach, pumpkin, pecan and peanut butter for starters.

Cake is a tasty treat any time. Try angel food, pound, chocolate, lemon pound, hot milk, lemon poppy seed after dinner on a Saturday night.

And if a cake is to much a cookie might be just the treat. They come in flavors to good to miss:  peanut butter, butter balls, oatmeal, banana, sugar, and chocolate chip.

Bread for toasting, buttering, sandwich making:  Whole wheat, multigrain, sourdough, salt rising, white.

Come to the market for a cup of hot coffee–organic, fair trade, fresh roasted and brewed fresh just for you!  Try a fresh cinnamon roll for a lovely weekend breakfast treat.

Parking is plentiful. The view is spectacular. The treats are delicious. Join us for the best of the season!

Come to the market ready for surprises! One of the marvelous aspects of shopping at any farmer’s market is the variety not only of produce but vendors. The following are regular vendors at the market but they are by no means inclusive of everyone you will find at the market

  • Marmac is back!  This cheddar style cheese from Mountain View has finished aging and is again available!  We’ll also have the Lusk (Gouda style) and Jumpin’ Jack Italian (with sundried tomatoes & garlic — yummy!)

Bath County Farmer's Market July 31

October 11, 2009

Hello from the Bath County Farmers Market!

What will you find at the market this week? The following is by no means an inclusive list of what you will find at the market. Produce is influenced by a wide variety of factors: animals (deer being the worst in our area!), insects, weather (farmers spend half their time wishing it would rain and the other half wishing it would stop), and time (time to sow- time to harvest- sometimes there are just not enough hours in the day!).
