Winter Market Update

Thank you to those who completed the Customer Survey regarding our potential plans for a Winter market. We did not receive the level of response we had hoped for, though the responses received were majority in favor. Perhaps it’s because you share our concern for the direction of Covid in the coming months. Perhaps starting a Winter market during a pandemic and flu season at an indoor venue is not wise. Operating an outdoor market during a pandemic has been stressful and difficult. So we will not be pursuing the project this year. We will continue to look at venues in the hopes of a Winter market for December 2021.

Arriving at the market this week

Noshes by Sherri will be serving up their famous mini Jewish Apple Cakes made with freshly picked apples coated in a cinnamon sugar spice and folded into batter for decadent layers of soft juicy apples that make for the sweetest cake. Sweeten up your day!
Mediterranean Delicacy will have their delicious olive oil and spices along with their gorgeous olive wood products this week carved from 600 year old trees that no longer bear fruit.  Salt cellar, cutting boards, utensils, salad bowls and more are available and each one is unique. What a perfect gift!
Rabbits Run Farm will have their creamy ash-coated bloomy rind cheese, Tohickon, available at market this weekend. Thinly sliced, it pairs well with crisp tart apples, and makes a great snack when heated on sourdough in a broiler or toaster oven with a few slices of apple.

Chef's Note: Apple Cider

By Chef Kelly Unger of The Rooster & The Carrot Cooking Studio
farm to table cooking classes
Another Fall classic flavor, apple cider has many uses beyond a delicious hot or cold beverage. Apple cider can be used to add flavor to vegetable dishes (especially cabbage), to glaze meat and vegetables, and can be used in baking and cocktails. The September issue of bon appetit magazine features a recipe for Apple Cider Donut Loaf Cake that looks so yummy. I plan to buy some of Bedminster Orchard’s cider this Saturday to make this cake on Sunday. I’ll post pictures! You’ll need 1 ½ cups to make the cake. 

I’m not sure Bedminster will have Pink Lady Apples, but any of his apples will do for  Seared Sausage with Cabbage and Pink Lady Apples from Country Living magazine. Grab sausages from Hershberger Heritage Farm and our produce vendors will have cabbages for you. Both of these recipes are quintessential Fall goodness from savory to sweet. I hope you’ll try them both and post photos of your results - and tag the market on social media! Enjoy!

Botanical Bulletin: Apple Cider

 by Alex Dadio, Market Manager
“Give me yesterday’s bread, this day’s flesh and last year’s cider” -Benjamin Franklin
It is hard to date exactly when apple cider began to be drunk.  However, apples were first known to grow along the banks of the Nile in Ancient Egypt around 1300 BC and in Central Asia. For many hundreds, if not thousands of years cider was drunk in a low alcoholic version. When the Romans invaded England they found that the English were enjoying a form of alcoholic cider. Julius Caesar makes mention of it in 55 BC.  The Romans enjoyed the cider as well and it started spreading through the Roman empire. 
After the Roman empire dissipated, it remained popular. As water could not be trusted in this time period and for hundreds of years, cider was treated as a necessity.  It had a low alcoholic content and was cheap to produce. Therefore it became the main drink of many European countries. People would drink it for breakfast drinking as much as a half of a gallon. 

When colonists came over from Europe they found a different kind of apple from the type that was grown in Europe.  They found crabapples which did not make good cider and were not good for eating either.  So, colonists began planting apples.  Soon, cider became a primary drink for the colonists, both adults and children.  Children were served a lower alcoholic version. Today, cider remains a popular drink around the world.  In its alcoholic version it is known as hard cider and non-alcoholic version is referred to just as “cider”. In the United States there are hundreds of thousands of gallons of apple cider produced every year.
