No mayday needed for this first day of May

Bust out the summer shirts and shorts!! No need to worry this Saturday, because it’s gonna be sunny with temps in the lower 80’s. The plants at the Nursery are loving it! Everything is blooming, flowering and welcoming the warm May days with great color and scents. Just like Gossett Nursery, Gossett’s Farm Market is full of color and great aromas, from the “wake-you-up-and-get-you-gogo-going” locally brewed aroma of Go-Go Pops coffee to the vibrant colors of farm fresh vegetables from Madera Farms, you’ll find a healthy selection of food, drink and local crafts waiting for you.

Local Artisan
This Saturday, besides a full house of vendors, we have a local artisan. Amy Handler will be here this Saturday and she is bringing the wisdom of Blockologie with her.  Blockoloegie, according to Amy, is defined as the study of life, love, art and nature on a block.
BlockologyAmy believes that design should look good and feel good in your hands. Her wooden blocks are handcrafted with beautiful images and words to inspire or make you smile on each of the six sides. These make a great paperweight, desktop conversation piece or decorative touch for your home or office. Looking For a meaningful gift for someone special in your life? Think outside the blocks!
Her mission is to create something beautiful that also helps to bring beauty to the world. Part of the proceeds of each of the blocks will go to charitable organizations such as CamFed and the Somaly Mam Foundation which help to improve the lives of young women.

Vegetables and Herbs. We got a boatload (well truckload, actually) of herbs and veggies in this week. For a complete list click HERE or click on the “Nursery Events” tab on the top of the page.

Sharpen your bargaining skills and come trade with your neighbors and make new friends. Gossett Brothers Nursery will donate a pack of organic seeds to everyone who trades at the event. You can find more information at The Katonah Green Calendar.

Neither wind, nor rain, nor crazy April weather……..

I think our vendors must of worked for the post office in a past life, because no matter what kind of wild weather April brings, they always get here and get the job done. We started off the month with a bang, amazing sunny skies and warm days, but then reality set back in and last Saturday we were blown around and just barely warm. This Saturday looks like its goona be a wet, cool one, but not to worry, our ‘cold-hardened” farmers have some specials for you, to help entice you to come and play in the rain.

Picklelicious is putting there Half Sour Pickles on sale for $5.00 a quart, reg. price $7.00.

Cascade Mountain is happy to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day 2010 with a newly released batch of California Certified Organic Olive Oil….this oil of a Spanish origin and is grown, crushed and packed on one 1800 acre parcel in the Upper Sacramento Valley, it has a tremendous fruity nose,never bitter and very pleasing as a finish oil The special this week only is $11.00 for 375 mll and $19.00 for the 750s…so enjoy and decrease your dependancy on foreign oil!!!

Madera Farms is bringing some asparagus, fresh (green) garlic stalks, maybe some rhubarb, sorrel along with there usual fantastic greens. Finally Wave Hill Breads will have lots and lots of “Just Crusts” chips, always a crowd favorite.

We also have a Local Artisan this Saturday. Dorothy Jagodzinski,  who is the talent behind “Creative Crafts by Dorothy”,   is sharing that talent by bringing her handmade  Aprons, Table Runners, Tote Bags, Jewlery and more to the Market.

Hello April, goodbye March madness!

What a week! First we get as much rain in day as we do in a month, but then the reward, amazing temperatures, blue skies and the feeling of spring in the air — finally!

This week the Market is outside again and we can’t wait! The Market is introducing a  new vendor this week, Pampered Cow Creamery. Pampered Cow offers amazing cheeses from grass fed cows. We also have three unique events this Saturday. First, its our very first household battery recycle Saturday. Bring your HOUSEHOLD batteries to Gossetts Nursery and dump them in the battery recycle box provided. Household batteries include both alkaline and nickel-cadmium batteries, so that includes non-rechargeables like AAA, AA, C, D, and 9 volt batteries, and rechargeable batteries.

Second Gossetts Farm Market is hosting representatives from Community Energy. Community Energy specializes in renewable energy. Local representatives Sam and Mark will be there to answer questions.

Third, we have another local artisan coming to the Market. Tammy Fischetti-Belle will bring her Fleur-Cut Flowers and floral arrangements. They will make a great holiday gift for that special someone or dress your home or dining room table with some of Tammy’s beautiful arrangements.

So without further delay, here is the vender list for this Saturday
