So long summer! Can’t say I’m sorry to see it go!
We are looking forward to some cooler temperatures to bring the mums into bloom, fall leaves, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin bread, and All You Can Carry Pumpkins! Our first pumpkins arrived this week, along with Indian corn, apple cider, apple cider donuts, and the beginning of all things harvest.
All “you can carry” will start on October 1st. So bring the kids, a group of friends, or all by yourself and stack your arms high, or fill up a wagon.
Our pumpkins, plants, produce, and a large majority of our products come from local farms and businesses in Chester, Lancaster & Montgomery Counties. When you shop with us, you are supporting local agriculture, families, and lifestyles that make our area unique.
We offer pumpkin carving tables if you’d like to keep the mess at the market. Kids love to carve pumpkins. They love to carve pumpkins with their friends. We know that some moms (myself included) could do without the mess! So bring your favorite carving tools, grab a snack or meal at the market, and watch the magic happen (while you sip your pumpkin spice latte).
Flavors of Harvest
We are just ramping up for fall here at the market. As the season progresses our menu will switch gears to include all the flavors of the harvest season. Pumpkin bread, muffins, loaves, rolls, lattes, cappuccinos, and juices (if you dare to try something new).
Local apples are in abundance too! We have local apples, apple cider, apple cider donuts, apple crisp, and apple pie. We don’t leave the taste of summer behind! When fresh local peaches, blueberries, cherries, and nectarines were in abundance, we planned ahead and froze them so we could add them to our crisps and pies. They add a great flavor to the typical apple crisps.
