The farmers market will be open on Saturday, August 8 unless there is thunder and lightening. The vendors that can get there safely with their products will be there. So far, Wild Carrot Farm, March Farms, Mockingbird, Tasty Empanada, Wave Hill Bread, maple syrup and Cato cheese have let us know they plan to be there.
Peaches arrived at the market last week with March Farms. And they are as delicious as we remember them being! We mixed them with some blueberries and strawberries and enjoyed them simply like that. Well, that was one of many ways we enjoyed them. Going back for more this week!
Here's what different for this week. See below for complete list of participating vendors.
Anna Gill's column this week features beets. Just one of the interesting facts we learned is that the beets are native to the Mediterranean Basin and were initially cultivated for only their leaves, which through development became Swiss Chard. Reference to several recipes on the website and featuring roasted beets done in a slow cooker.
Below is the list of all vendors participating at the market this Saturday. If there are last minute changes, they will be posted on the website. Contact information for vendors not participating yet is at the bottom of this.
We're looking forward to seeing you! Stay safe and healthy.

SUSTAINABLE TIP OF THE WEEK
Jamie Fischer (White Memorial) and John Markelon (LHS evinronmental teacher) were approached by the Pollinator Pathway Project to identify pollinator sites in Litchfield. The Pollinator Pathway project is organized by volunteers from town conservation organizations working together to establish pollinator-friendly habitat and food sources for bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and other pollinating insects and wildlife along a series of continuous corridors. Most native bees have a range of about 750 meters, so the goal is to connect properties that are no farther apart than that. This project began in 2017 in Wilton, CT. Since then, pathways have been established in over 85 towns in CT and NY and the list keeps growing. To find out more contact Jamie James@whitememorialcc.org or John email@example.com
