Weather forecast for Market hours: 70s and 80s during the morning.
What's in season?
PEACHES. Have you ever had a tree-ripe peach? Instant gratification guaranteed. You'll also find firm ones for the days ahead, picked close enough to ripeness to maintain that wonderful flavor.
Hillacres Pride cheese samples this week include: Tomato Basil, Pesto & Feta and Fresh Cheese with Real Maple Syrup; Cheddar and Garden Dill; Westbrook & Arcadia; Quark.
Two types of breakfast links made from Hillacres Pride's delicious Berkshire pork and flavored with all natural ingredients—no preservatives or fillers. Half-pound packs of six are on special for $3.75.
New Cookbook in the Info Tent!
Hot off the presses! Friends of the Farmers Market has the Edible Jersey Farmers Market Cookbook, released to celebrate the fifth anniversary of this great foodie magazine.
We are proud to say Collingswood Farmers Market had two entries selected. The cookbook includes more than 30 delicious seasonal recipes as well as sidebars on how to select and store fresh produce, and a 2012 Farmers' Market Guide and seasonality chart.
The book is $7.99. Like everything sold at the information tent, proceeds benefit the market. Friends of the Farmers Market supplies the live music and sound equipment, chairs, freebies, stickers and more.
Musical Guest - 9 a.m. (weather permitting)
She Hates Me is the music this week...yes, we mean it this time! Next week, Trio Nova Duo will return, hopefully to a more reasonable summer heat index.
