Farmers Market Loot, July 13
We are really getting into the goods now. So yes, we dropped a lot of clams for this loot.
The total was $111 — but it was mostly meat, including 6 pork chops and 2 chickens.
Here's the rundown.
The Orchards of Concklin, $31.
2 quarts sour cherries
2 quarts sweet cherries
1 pint gooseberries
1 pint currants
10 ears corn
Blooming Hill, $9
2 1/2 pounds yellow beans
Dines Farm $55
6 pork chops
1 package chorizo chicken sausage
The Valley Shepherd $16
1 pound sheep's milk blue
Now, this is not from the farm market, but I wanted to include it anyway because it's local and seasonal:
1 round Rainbeau Ridge goat cheese made fresh in Bedford, N.Y.
2 Sour Cherry Farm plums from the orchard
2 Sour Cherry Farm zucchini from our fields

I notice that in the grand scheme of all "loot" purchased at the Nyack farmer's market that you haven't tried the Six Pepper cheese spread from LynnHaven's goat milk cheese stand. It is phenomenal and worth trying. Enjoy!
While renting a friend's house in Palo Alto one summer many eons ago, my mom and would lay out in the backyard and, when the need for refreshment struck, we would rise from our lounge chairs and mosey over to the plum tree and pluck. Heaven.
Haven't made it down there the last few weeks- are the fresh-picked flower bouquets out yet? I have to get it together and go next week. And all of your pix have got me in the mood to get at least some of that cheese- you'll have to give me your recommendations!
Yes! The flower lady is there. She's got gorgeous bouquets. Meet me there next Thursday and we'll pick out some cheese together. Don't buy until you try!
Jen, I've never had the six-pepper spread. I've had the cheese a couple times, and I think in the June 8 edition of Farmers Market Loot, you'll see we had the herb-rolled. But I'll have to try the pepper one!
Hi. Sorry for my english. Happy New Year!!!!!
