News from the Pawtuxet Village Farmers Market

From Steve Stycos:

There are 2 more weeks of the winter market! Thursdays from 4:30 to 7 PM at the Edgewood Congregational Church on Broad St.

 

Add some local flavor to your Lenten, Easter and Passover favorites: fish, bitter greens, potatoes, honey and, of course, eggs are all available from our vendors.

Plus bread, soup, scones, little pizzas, and more.

 

Blue Skys Farm is featuring “Small State Seeds”, chemical-free and locally grown seeds from Scratch Farm in Cranston. Tried and true veggie varieties for the Rhode Island climate.

Friends of the Pawtuxet River and the West Bay Land Trust will be holding an Earth Day clean up and tree planting on Saturday April 26 from 9 AM to noon at the former DEM depot on Warwick Ave.(just before the bridge, across from the Stop and Shop). Bring clippers, rakes, gloves or just yourself, for an hour or as long as you can spare. Help keep our riverbank and trail clear and trash-free.

 

Our regular market opens on May 10 (the Saturday before Mother’s Day) at Rhodes on the Pawtuxet. We welcome back our summer vendors, such as Beltane Farm and LeFavorite Bakery and Rocky Ledge (formerly Moosup River) Farm. Stay tuned for more.

 

See you at the market.

FRESH CHEVRE, WARMER TEMPS, THE USUAL LINE-UP PLUS ONE – kiersten.marek@gmail.com – Gmail

News from the Pawtuxet Village Farmers Market:

Finally, we should have a clear, non-arctic evening for our market.  Come back and taste the goodness from our faithful vendors:  The Local Catch, Blue Skys Farm, PV Farmstand, Foremost Baking Company, Little Falls Cafe,  and (we hope) Presto Strange O coffee truck.  Our market table will feature products from Virginia & Spanish Peanut Company, Rhody Fresh butter and cheese, Fruit Hill Apiaries Honey and Barden Orchard apples.

New this week: Winter Chevre from Beltane Farm. Market regulars will fondly recall the delightful goat cheeses from Paul Trubey’s Lebanon CT farm, sold at our regular season market.  This chevre is described as follows:

“While our goats are on winter break from milking, our cow Betsey Bigelow provides the milk for this creamy, soft cheese with a velvety texture.”

We met Betsey, her new calf Penelope, and lots of goats at the farm when we went to pick up the cheeses.  She is a sweet girl, and her cheese is delicious.  Samples will be available tomorrow.

And we will have a familiar face behind the table at the Blue Skys Farm booth:  Chang Xiong of Pak Express will be subbing for Christina for the early part of the market.  Say hello to Chang and get a spring preview.

See you at the market.

Gluten-Free Oatmeal Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

130_1452 These can be for your Soul Mate, or just for yourself! Either way, they make a great Valentine’s Day Treat.

They are also high in protein and whole grains, and have a list of ingredients that even I can remember off the top of my head. Recipe to come in my book, Cooking for Emotional Wellness, due out this fall!
