Top of Tomato Season To You! View in browser
facebook instagram

August is designated PA Produce Month for good reason — it's prime season right now for so much locally-grown goodness!

Tomatoes are hitting their peak, which means it's time to tuck some away for winter. If you're not into canning, freezing is an easy way to preserve this summer flavor for future sauces & soups! Find bulk buys from Flying Plow online, or ask Breezy Acre or Swallow Hill for availability. If bulk is too much, just buy some extra each week to freeze in small batches!

Summer squash & zucchini are still so abundant. Have you tried making Zucchini Butter? (It can also be frozen!)

Watermelons are coming in strong, sweet & juicy right now! Our farms offer a range of seeded & seedless varieties. The cantaloupes are also delicious!

Thanks to all who celebrated National Farmers Market Week with us! If you didn't catch this writeup on Historic Kennett's website yet, take a few minutes to read Five Reasons Why Farmers Markets Are More Important Than Ever Right Now. We are so thankful for a supportive local community!

Please Note: Preorders are still welcomed, appreciated & recommended by vendors who have the option, so find this week's lineup below, and place orders by the deadlines noted.
