In the US, we are accustomed to a good corned beef brisket, cabbage, and root vegetables to celebrate St Patrick's Day. But did you know that in Ireland, the traditional meal is actually boiled bacon with cabbage? Irish immigrants in New York City discovered that corned beef was a less expensive alternative and adopted it for their patron saint's holiday. Our vendors can fill your shopping bag with all the supplies for either beef or pork option, as well as all the vegetables and desserts you need to serve up the traditional meal.
This Saturday (1-11) your in for a treat! Miles Smith Farm will have Charlotte the pig and Phoebe the highlander on hand for pictures. They are both very sweet and kid friendly. Charlotte is one lucky pig, she became loved dearly by the staff at Miles Smith and will live a great plump life on top of the hill at the farm. Phoebe is an 8th month year old Scottish Highlander that loves to have her picture taken!
Thank you for a terrific Holiday Market Season (Nov. and Dec.). All of the vendors are very grateful for your support in the farmers' market and purchasing local food. No market this coming weekend (Dec. 28th). We look forward to seeing you the Saturday after New Years (Jan. 4th) with a packed greenhouse of 32 vendors!
