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.

The Katonah Green Chef Demonstration Series runs at Gossetts Farm Market every Saturday from 11:00 a.m. till 1:00 p.m

What is holistic health counseling? Holistic health counseling treats each person as the individual that they are. What works for one person may not work for another.

Lisa Miller WellnessLisa works with the concept of primary foods and secondary foods. Primary foods are the things in your life: exercise, relationships, career and spirituality. Secondary foods are the foods you eat. You can eat the healthiest, cleanest diet in the world, but if you’re miserable in your relationship or unfulfilled in your career you will not be healthy.

Being healthy doesn’t take as much time as you make think. It actually gives you more time and energy. How? By eating well and leading a balanced life you will gain energy, decrease stress, think more clearly, rev up your metabolism, feel more confident and find time to do the things you love. You’ll feel amazing! Click on the Wellness logo above to see Lisa Millers website.

A Passion for Healthy Living

Carmen Jerome

Carmen Jerome

On Saturday, August 29th, Carmen Jerome  shared her passion for food and healthy living and cook up something nutritious and fun! Carmen, using ingredients from the Gossett Farm Market itself, made pizza on the grill using a home-maid honey wheat crust.

Carmen made the honey wheat crust night before, and then on Saturday morning walked around the market  and picked out whatever looked good for a pizza topping, sliced it all up, piled it neatly on the pre-made crusts and placed it all directly on the grill at a medium heat for about 15 minutes.

Pizza toppings included fresh veggies from Madura Farms, goat and pork sausages from New England Farms, and fresh made cheeses from the Farmer’s Daughter and Bardwell Farms.   It was a fun, simple meal that the kids and parents loved!

Carmen Jerome has been active in the health and wellness industry for five years, studying everything from Massage Therapy, yoga, and fitness training to Permaculture and Holistic Nutrition.  She is an active supporter of organic farming, volunteers with local community gardens, and never turns down an opportunity to whip up a new recipe with fresh ingredients.

“Food, I mean REAL food, that’s what I’m passionate about.  I love everything about it, the growing, harvesting, preparing, enjoying; there’s just something magical about the relationship between our bodies, the food we consume, and the nature that provided it.” ~Carmen Jerome
