What’s New In The Farmer’s Market

Fresh Local Produce available at the Farmer's Market. The main health benefit of locally grown food is that it’s fresher. Fruits and vegetables begin to lose their nutrients within 24 hours of being picked, so fresher produce is more nutritious. In addition, locally grown food is picked at its peak ripeness, when it’s most dense with nutrients.

Honey – Mother Nature’s Super Food

Honey, specifically raw, pure and unpasteurized, is considered a super food. Raw honey comes straight from the honeycomb. Most of the honey you see in the grocery store is processed and the pollen is removed and it is a far cry from the health promoting powerhouse of its raw, pure unpasteurized counterpart. At our farmers market in Ridgewood N.J. we have the “real deal“ Nina's Red Barn Farm Honey.

Why we do what we do

When we first saw this facebook post on Stacie Cahn Greenhouse's Facebook page our jaw dropped.

A place where happiness flourishes, where their's growth and friendships made, a place where their is love, kindness and laughter in the air."

Apples for Eating and Baking

It’s not my imagination, those crates of apples at the Goffle Brook Farm’s farmers markets are looking might tasty. There’s Honeycrisps, McIntosh, Golden Supreme and Cortlands to choose from.

Garlic scapes are the stalks that grow from the bulbs of garlic plants.

Preparing Cucumbers and Pickles

Cucumbers can bring great yields in a garden and it can be a hard task to figure out what you’re going to do with all of them. Thankfully there are a lot of great and healthy ways to gain all the health benefits cucumbers offer us while also making them even tastier in the process. There are many types of cucumbers you can choose from either at farmers markets or when purchasing seeds, but for these recipes we recommend using kirby or persian cucumbers as they will typically provide you with quality, crunchy pickles.

Fresh Produce

There's nothing else like it to put a smile on your face. Shopping at a Farmer's Market. The sights and sounds of customers chit chatting while divulging in locally grown produce. The aromas of fresh fruits and vegetables wafting on a summer's breeze. Children grabbing a grape to munch on when no ones looking. And then there are the benefits...

Fragrant Indoor Lavender

The scent of lavender is one very prominent quality of it, but besides that, there are many other forgotten qualities of the plant. Being one of the easiest herbs to grow, lavender requires little in terms of pest control or fertilizer products and once it's established, rarely needs water. Its scent is very soothing and prominent, making it a great indoor plant just for the fresh scent it brings with it. Its essential oil is also an ingredient in many aromatherapy products, such as lotion, perfume, and candles.
