Fresh Greens, Asparagus, Strawberries, Beets…!

Cooking by Color!

Our produce vendors’ tables are filling up with vibrant spring greens and bright colors. Mix-and-match your way to delicious meals.

Red and green: strawberries and arugula salad. Purple and green: roasted asparagus and beets. Green and green and green: sautéed kale and chard, with fresh chopped scallions. Red, white and green: shaved radishes and shaved asparagus in a light vinaigrette. And for an earthy touch, add thinly slice cremini or exotic oyster mushrooms. All of the above can be had from the vendors below!

E. Fudd & Son. Organic growers from West Chester, PA. Media Farmers Market is the only farmers market they do.

Fruitwood Farms. Going back to the 1800s, Fruitwood Farms is from Monroeville, NJ. They bring abundant veggies and fruits, and always their prized honey!

Hillside Farm. Located in Elwyn, Hillside Farm’s focus is building community through sustainable farming and farm-based education.

Mushrooms. From Chadds Ford, Mushrooms brings a selection of mushrooms, including cremini, portobellos, and shiitakes.

Althouse Fruit Farm, featuring fruits and jams (and a few veggies, too), returns in June.

Fun for Our Young Farmers Market Shoppers!

Digging for Treasure!
Bring the kids to the Media-Upper Providence Free Library‘s table at tomorrow’s Market between 3:30 and 5 for a sand bin treasure hunt (digging for small plastic fruits and veggies)…and prizes! You can also pick up the library’s program schedule for kids of all ages.

And Then On to Add This Week’s Fruit or Vegetable to Their Produce Passport!
Each week, kids can draw the featured fruit or vegetable of the week into their Produce Passport, and win prizes along the way! There’ll be a prize after they fill in four fruits or vegetables, another prize after filling in seven, and then a grand prize after ten…a $5 token that is good at any of the vendors at the Farmers Market! So stop by the Market Manager’s Table to fill in the next “produce destination” in your passport!

The Media Food Bank will have a drop-off container at the Farmers Market every Thursday, which will be delivered to the Food Bank right after each Market’s close. Media Food Bank appreciates healthy non-perishables, and accepts toiletries, too. For more info, check out their Facebook page.
