The Market started off with a bang today, surrounded by a multitude of participants in the Bethany Firecracker 5K, along with Gary Grumbach and his crew from NBC News based in D.C. They were interviewing our farmers concerning the effects of rising input costs, and the struggles and successes of farming in general. Stay tuned for the link to this news segment featuring your favorite local farmers!

Bennett Orchards brought peaches, as promised, and sold out quickly, as predicted! More will be coming next week – plan to be there at the clang of the cowbell – 8 am!

A special treat this week from Davidson’s Exotic Mushrooms was the Shroom Queen’s son grilling Bar-B-Que Portabellas.  It was a delectable treat – fingers crossed that we’ll see more grilling at the Market this season!

Bar-B-Que Portabellas

  • 1 Portabella mushroom per person
  • 1 cup favorite BBQ sauce
  • 1 cup Italian dressing

Combine sauce and dressing, and mix well. Place mushrooms and marinade in a large zip lock bag. Let marinate for 3-4 hours. Grill each side 3-4 minutes.  Enjoy!!

The end of some of our favorite spring crops is approaching. Ficner Farms’ harvesting of broccoli and kale is coming to an end. The good news is they, along with Wimbrow Farms will be bringing corn, tomatoes, squash, cukes, potatoes, and beans.

Lavender Fields’ soap-of-the-month is Watermelon. You will want to grab that when you stop by for your Bug Away spray!

Don’t forget an exciting new product at our Market this year is Henlopen Sea Salt – sold by Story Hill Farms. As always – local – harvested and processed right here in Sussex County!

Our patrons, from near and far, came out in droves today – thank you for your loyalty and sunny disposition!

See you next Sunday!

8 am – 12 pm
