Another exciting Sunday at the market is in store for you. It’s also the 3rd Sunday of the month with our popular Artisan’s Corner with our talented artists and craftspersons.
But first… it’s summer and it’s warm, but not to worry, as we have drinks, drinks, drinks. If you need a morning jolt- then stop by Mostly Myrtles for a smooth, dark cup of cold-brewed coffee from their outstanding line of artisanal coffees. Each week Debra and Marc also bring a wide variety of delicious gluten free muffins, cookies and cakes. At the far end of the market you’ll find the folks from Lizzmonade, where you can choose your own fruit or herb ingredients for your freshly squeezed lemonade. Iced tea your preference- then visit Tea Time, where Rowland offers refreshing flavored iced teas, along with his impressive selections of loose leaf teas. Mo Green Juice always brings their healthy green and fruit juices – even in small sizes for the little ones, and James, owner Champagne Tea, offers several flavors of his probiotic kombucha. You can even find satisfying drinkable yogurts and milk in glass bottles at Matt’s Southtown Farm stand.
It’s mid July and our farmer’s fields are glorious! Visit Blooming Hill Farm, Orchards of Concklin, Matarazzo Farm and Madura Farm for incredible variety and quality. Please don’t be shy… ask questions and try something new.
You’ll want to have Stella’s Empanadas fill a box with your favorite varieties of her savory Argentinean stuffed pockets with chicken, beef, beans, cheese, spinach and other creative combination. Stella’s empanadas also freeze well and are perfect anytime.
Stock up with Bounty Granola, where Nicole and Matthew, bring a fine selection of small batch craft granola. Bounty is a new enterprise and recently reached a milestone of one ton of granola sold. Congratulations!
We’re also pleased to have Quarter Bites visit us for the first time this season. Not only is Ashley’s Maple Roasted Pecan Butter fantastic, but you’ll want to find out more about the origin of her interesting company name… Quarter Bites.
Do you or your family members suffer from a wide range of allergies? You should be able to find sweet treats too and Mo’ Pweeze Bakery is your answer. Mo’ Pweeze is an allergen free bakery – eliminating eight of the top main allergens from their scrumptious treats.
Executive Chef, Cesar Guevara, from Ramsey’s Majestic Diner, will join us this Sunday. We love to have our fine chefs shop our market and use their creative talents for another Sunday of chef demos- located mid market usually around noon. Welcome Chef Guevara.
We were so pleased that Produce Pete visited us last year at the market and now returns again this Sunday. For years, Produce Pete has been educating WNBC audiences with tips on taking the mystery out of choosing and using fruits and vegetables. His book, Farmacopeia, will be available for signing.
Miss Lorraine will have another creative children’s craft for the little ones. We love that Miss Lorraine often bases her craft using petals, pits, colors and more- all found at the market.
Located next to the train station at our Artisan’s Corner will be our talented craftspeople, including Silver Beak Studios and Bonnie’s Baubles and Beads (jewelry), Georgene Novak Designs(jewelry), Dragon Sigma Designs (handcrafted pens and more), EVLK Designs (totes, purses, etc), Fisher Originals (stuffed children’s items), Mudspinner Pottery and American Creations(handcrafted wood items).
We hope you gather family or a few friends and come on down to your very own Ramsey Farmers’ Market. Even if you come by yourself, we bet you meet someone you know or make a new friend. A smile and a hello will be waiting for you. See you soon.
It promises to be a warm day at the market and we will have water for your pet, but please remember that an air temperature of 86 degrees equates to an asphalt temperature of 135 degrees. It just may be too hot for their tender paws.
The market continues its commitment to support local farming and a sustainable community, focusing on recycling, ways to reduce your carbon footprint and community wellness. The market’s Pay It Forward program collects donated non-perishable foods from market patrons and fresh produce from farmers- all delivered to the Center for Food Action in Mahwah, NJ each week.
