It's Officially Tomato Season!

Over the past weeks, I've been finding a few ripe tomatoes here and there.  However, after my walk through this morning, I'm going to say we are officially in our tomato season. Find us at Friday's Farm Fresh Market at the Outlet Shoppes at Gettysburg.  It looks like we'll cool off a bit this upcoming weekend.

Garlic Lovers, REJOICE!

People who love garlic are very passionate about garlic and seek out the best varieties.  Well, rejoice because we just dug up this year's garlic crop and it's ready for the market. Here's what I will have at Friday's Farm Fresh Market this week.
  • Premium Northern White: A good strong garlic in a large clove. The heritage of this unique garlic can be directly traced to Northern Germany. Especially good for baking.
  • Chesnok Red: One of the best all-around cooking varieties because of its full-bodied flavor lingers and is retained after cooking.  Creamy texture when baked.
  • Bavarian Purple: Folks who regularly include garlic as a part of their diet typically like stronger-flavored garlic.  If this sounds like you, please try Bavarian Purple. SOLD OUT!
  • Dutch Yellow Shallots:  Yellow to cream flesh gourmet shallot and a pungent flavor. 
Friday's Farm Fresh Market is conveniently located at The Outlet Shoppes in Gettysburg.  Hours: 9:30 - 2:00 on Friday!  If I'm unable to be at the market, find our garlic with Heirloom Farm - Gary Boynton.

Pile Them High and Let'em Fly....

 ...well not just yet.  Just harvested Candy Apple onions will require 3 days drying outside and then curing in the barn for another 2-3 weeks.  Curing allows the onion skins to dry out and improve the quality of storage.  Candy Apple onions are one of the most beautiful red onions on the market.  They are ideal for fresh eating or cooking. Good in storage for approximately two months. We do have some ready to sell at Friday's Farm Fresh Market.

This year we will feature an assortment of mature micro greens in flats, growing instructions and starter kits for anyone that would like to give their green thumb a try at micro greens.

From a multitude of colors, flavors and varieties, micro greens are a welcome addition to any salad or as a gourmet garnish. 

The Festival brings a great array of entertainment, arts, and culinary events to our area.
