If you couldn’t tell, we’re huge supporters of the Huntington Farmers Market. Every Sunday morning we’re out there bright and early, picking up eggs, cider and fruit for the week. We find that when we buy less (only enough fresh fruit/eggs for the week), we eat fresher because every Sunday we restock with fresh supplies. We also pick up fresh cheese from the new cheese vendor and I highly recommend their feta which we always have on hand these days. The blueberries and cherries have been great so far; wish I could say the same for Long Island Strawberries.
So, along with some photos, I’m going to include my list of can’t miss items:
Apple Cider, Cinammon Honey Sticks (5/$1), Apple Cider Donuts and Farm Fresh Eggs from the Orchards at Concklin.
Jams and tapenades from Miss Amy’s Preserves (My dad and I are partial to Peconic Blackberry and Blue Point Blueberry).
Fresh feta (or some of their raw milk cheeses) from the new cheese vendor.
Anything fresh from the Golden Earthworm organic booth; the sugar snap peas last week were gobbled up as soon as they made it home.
I urge everyone to stop by the Huntington Farmers Market on Sunday mornings and support the vendors that make it possible. Eat fresh, local foods and see what wonders it will do for your life.
