A Taste of Africa at Media Farmers Market!

Bring Home a Taste of Africa!

Wake up your taste buds with aromatic, authentic African flavors from Rafiki Shoppe from Lancaster, Pa.! Delicious vegetable pakoras, beef samosas, chicken briowats, spicy millet bread and other flatbreads for something savory. Basbousa (yogurt-almond cake) and Moroccan baklava for your sweet tooth. They also carry dried beans and lentils. Rafiki means “friend” in Swahili, and all profits from Rafiki’s sales support charities locally and in Africa, particularly Rafiki Africa Foundation, which supports sustainable development and education in Western Africa. Stop by their table for their ready-to-eat fare and to learn more about their charity outreach.

Cheeses from Roundtop!

Along with farm-fresh eggs, yogurts, and classic Amish desserts like shoo fly pie, Roundtop Farm brings an extensive selection of cheeses that have developed a following in the Philadelphia area (e.g., Garces Trading Company, Troegs Brewing Company, and Talula’s Table). Choose from bleus, cheddars, Camemberts, organic, vegetarian, hormone-free…and more! Pair your favorite cheese with a Borderland wine (which you’ll find at Media Farmers Market as well!). You can find more information at Roundtop’s website, and be sure to sign up for their newsletter, online or in person tomorrow! For a different way to use bleu cheese, see recipe below.
