An Overwhelming Success!!

We did it! This morning at 8 AM, we opened a market stand in conjunction with Keswick Creamery, at the Carlisle Central Farmers Market. For hours, the market was awash in people from south central Pennsylvania checking out what all there was to buy...and buy they did!
This is our organically grown heirloom tomato salesperson. She did a great job when she wasn't eating Thai Pink Easter Eggs out of the cartons.

Chef Jason Turner from Alibis Eatery & Spirits gave the morning cooking demonstration using fresh ingredients from the market. In the afternoon, Chef Ross Morris from Piatto made a phenomenal batch of Butternut Squash Risotto as market manager Maryellen Stetz looks on waiting for a taste.

  1. I'm not at all surprised by your intial (and continued) success. Great product sells itself, but it helps if the farmer's a savvy marketer too. I'm just surprised it took me this long to read your blog.
