Farmers Market

From the press release for the Woodstock Farmers Market. Did you vote yet? See the message at the end.

Royal Oak Orchard will be at the market this next Tuesday, August 18’th with apples, cider, pies, honey and their famous cider donuts. They will be coming on Tuesdays for the rest of the season. They have a wide variety of apples and it is always interesting to taste the new varieties as they ripen. We are in the heart of sweet corn season and several of our vendors have luscious varieties to try. Tomatoes are trickling in, but if you come early, they are at the market now.

Also on Saturday, August 22’nd we will have fruit from the family farm of Paul Friday of Michigan. They farm 100 acres in Coloma, Michigan where Paul is a peach and fruit breeder. They will be bringing his patented Flaming Fury Peach and nectarine and Bubblegum Plums. Also blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. Take a look and a taste.

We are scheduling another chef demo (watch for it later in August).

Thanks everyone for voting for the Woodstock Farmers market in the “Love your Market” contest. We are now 43’rd in the nation and the leading market in Illinois. If you haven’t voted yet, just go the following link:
