Local Food: Gateway Farmers’ Market, York

We’ve no shortage of greens, but made a trip to the Gateway Farmers’ Market in York this weekend to supplement what’s in the garden: beets and tomatoes from Riverside Farm; field strawberries from River Lily Farm; cilantro from Moondance Farm; and tucked underneath it all, fresh pasta from Valicenti Organico.

    Oh yum, we have once more entered the season of tasteless (shipped down from Queensland) tomatoes and I am very sad. I’d also like some of those strawberries…

      It’s like the hourglass turned over, the harvest falling into our half of the hemisphere! The strawberries were our very first since last year, and were delicious, especially considering the prior week’s rains. I only wish I’d bought more!

    Very tempting looking basket. I had a trip to the farmer’s market this weekend also to supplement the meager offerings of the garden at this time of year (for me at least).

      We’re focused on eating from our own garden this year and less trips to the farmers’ market, where the variety is so tempting!

    Good for you, supporting local farmers. I too supplement my home grown produce with nice things from our local farmers markets.

      We’re lucky to have an incredibly diverse range of farmers, and rarely shop in supermarkets and, even then, it’s usually just to pick up paper goods. My parents live in your area, which farmers’ market do you go to or recommend?
