Visitors to last week’s market, Olivia Janson and Olivia Bove couldn’t wait to enjoy the incredible juicy and delicious Jersey peaches they found at one of the farm tables. Both young women had just finished another fun day at Media Farmers Market, and the fruits were the perfect ending to a great day.
They were not alone. Everyone has been talking about the fabulous peaches at this year’s Market—just as they do every year! There is nothing more delicious than a fresh-picked peach!
Vera Pasta owner Chef Joe D’Andrea grew up in an Italian household in West Chester, PA. A graduate of the Italian Culinary Academy in Manhattan and The International School of Italian Cuisine in Parma, Italy, D’Andrea started Vera Pasta in a mission to bring the simple, true flavors of Italy back home. He is dedicated to showcasing pasta and sauces from all regions of Italy, from the rich sophisticated north to the rustic bold south. Bring home Vera Pasta’s dried spinach shells or fresh roasted-tomato-caprese ravioli and homemade sauce for dinner!
Back to School…Vendor Update!
It’s time for two Media Farmers Market vendors to go back to school. Teacher-owners Bernie and Kristin Carozza of Bonjoon Pizza wrapped up their summer season last Thursday. And tomorrow is Jeff Seip and J&J Kettle Korn’s last market for the season, so be sure to treat yourself to kettle korn tomorrow, plus enough to share at your Labor Day picnic!
FYI: Meryle and Mushrooms will be taking a short break from the Market, and will return September 25. And Twelve Baskets will be moving on to a full-time gig in the next couple weeks. We’ll keep you posted on that.

On September 7, Transition Town Media will be hosting two mushroom-related workshops entitled “Mushroom ID for a Healthy Planet” and “Putting the FUN in Fungi.” These workshops will be taught by members of Radical Mycology, a volunteer organization touring North America this fall to teach skills related to working with fungi. These educational workshops are given “in the gift” (suggested donation $10+), and will be held on Sunday, September 7, from 2-5:30 p.m. at Providence Friends Meeting in Media, 105 N Providence Road.
