Kid’s Market Passport Returns! πŸŽπŸ…πŸŒ½

Pineapple Cider at Stone & Key

Summer is just around the corner, and if that’s got you thinking of tropical drinks, then stop by Stone & Key Cellars to find out more about their new Pineapple Cider! Made with locally sourced cider from Solebury Orchards, this clean & crisp cider is sure to be a refreshing summertime treat. Cider not your thing? Then try their amazing fruit wines – perfect for a summer sangria!

Kids’ Market Passport Program 

You’ve been asking for it, and we’re so happy to say: the kid’s Market Passport program has returned! Stop by the Manager’s Table to pick up your passport. Visit each week to see what the veggie of the week is, draw it in your passport and earn a stamp. As you progress through the passport, you’ll earn small prizes as well as a grand prize once you complete the passport! 

The Market is More Accessible

After hearing helpful input from you, our shoppers, we’ve made a change to make the Market more accessible! Going forward, we will not be closing the gates at the Front Street end of the Market. This means that people needing access no longer need to go up and down the sidewalk ramps to gain access to Edgemont Street. Close parking is usually available as well in front of the school or by the fields.

Update those signs!

Have you noticed that your yard sign is out of date again? Then stop by the Market to find out how you can get a sticker to promote our current hours. We so appreciate your continued support!

The Market has art! 🎨

Spring Peas have arrived

Stop by Robin Hill Organics for the first of the spring peas! These peas are always a fan favorite and sell out quickly, so make sure to get there early for the best selection of peas, beets, and garlic scapes, as well as the usual roots and greens. 

Learn Origami at the Market

Feeling crafty this weekend? Then meet Megan and learn origami! Origami traditionally refers to the Japanese art of paper folding, but in modern usage is used to refer to all paper folding techniques regardless of culture of origin. Stop by to learn how to make beautiful paper sculptures without a single cut, piece of tape, or drop of glue!

Plein-Air Painters Feature the Market

The Market will also be visited by local plein-air (French for “outdoor”) painters. They will have their easels and canvases set up to paint scenes of our Market. Their finished pieces will be featured as part of the Harvest Gathering event as the Community Arts Center in Wallingford.

We also want to thank everyone who came out during out fundraising night at Iron Hill this past April. We appreciate your continued support of the Market as we work hard to keep improving and adding to the Market to provide you with the freshest, healthiest, and best produce, food, and products.
