Tuesday Market Says PIE (and Ice Cream and Tortillas and Goat Cheese Truffles and Fennel and more)
Hey Tuesday Market Friends --
It's Pie Day this week! And rich, creamy ice cream this week, too. Steve Herrell will be scooping Herrell's vanilla ice cream for you to have on top of your pie for an additional donation. We're so excited to celebrate and eat with all of you. Included in this newsletter are images from last year's Pie Contest to remind and inspire. if you still have any questions about bringing pie or eating pie or prizes for pie, you can respond to this email with them.
Thanks to all of you that have bought raffle tickets -- we've made close to $1200 selling tickets and will draw the winners on Tuesday. You don't have to be there to win. We'll still be selling tickets until 3 pm. We also want to thank the wonderful businesses and collaborators in town that have supported our market and FoodStampsX2 this year -- Florence Savings Bank, Herrell's Ice Cream, the City of Northampton, Cornucopia Foods, River Valley Market, Go Berry, SIP, Grow Food Northampton, and Different Drummers Kitchen. We've raised almost $5,000 out of our $12,000 goal and hope you can help us get closer this Tuesday.
We will be graced again by Maggie and Molly and the Ephemeral String Band at market from 2:30-4:30 and then Matt Lorenz of Rusty Belle will come and play some music starting at 4:30.
In the midst of pie, we welcome Chamayas Tortilleria selling fresh tortillas at market for the first time. They are a new Northampton-based women run business and will be dropping in to market for the month of September and maybe beyond. Come try them out. Bone Flower Botanikals will also be dropping in at market this week only. They will be donating a percentage of all of their sales on Tuesday to FoodStampsX2 so check out their amazing line of herbal products. Here are links to all the vendors at market this week.
Looking into the future: On September 25th, amazing chef Daniel Martinez from Bistro Les Gras and GRUB will be teaching a cooking class at Different Drummers Kitchen called A Serendipitous Dinner from the Farmers Market. The class is on a Tuesday evening, but if you're available earlier in the day, you can menu plan with Daniel at Bistro Les Gras and then head to the market for ingredients with him. How fun and useful! Unmi and Roger from Coco will be teaching another Tuesday Market connected class in early October so stay tuned.
See you at market!
