Welcome to the Thursday Old Town Community Market,
Alexandria’s Favorite Dog - Friendly Market.
Hope everyone had a delightful Spring Break.
We are delighted to welcome three new vendors to the market this week.
Meet Harmony Farm! Harmony Farm is located in Shenandoah Junction WV and was established in 1975 by Stephen and Virginia Gorman. It was their goal to produce food in the highest quality manner in a sustainable manner. They also believed in continual conservation efforts of the land for future generations. Now under the direction of Steve and Maggie Gorman along with Chris and Heather Gorman, the farm continues to operate with the same principals of sustainability and environmental stewardship. They are proud of their agricultural heritage and believe that there is no better of a calling then feeding your fellow man.
The farm produces Black Angus beef cattle, Dorper sheep, Heritage pigs, pasture raised meat chickens, pasture raised laying hens for egg production and an abundance of fresh produce. The primary diet of their livestock is pasture. By operating this way, they are able to remain growth hormone and antibiotic free. Harmony Farm always utilizes Non-GMO feeds for livestock that require grain to sustain themselves. They feel that they would not want to feed anyone else what they would not feed their own family.
Farmer Chris of Harmony Farms comes to us from West Virginia with eggs and meats all produced using non GMO products. Josh of The Fermented Pig, a favorite at the Four Mile Run Farmer’s Market brings us smoked bacon, kielbasa’s and kombucha...while Amy of Politics to Pastry shares a variety of Italian pastries including amoretti cookies, Italian rainbow cookies, pizzelles, and lemon ricotta cookies.
All of our regulars return this week. Ana of Ana’s Twist continues to delight with her Signature Soups, fresh, hot cheese Empanadas and ice cream and sorbets. I served Ana’s Easter Soup at a dinner party on Sunday and my guests loved it. Pick up a cup of fresh coffee from Heather of Barking Bee as you sample all of the goodies at the market. Remember... Life’s Ruff Without a Buzz. Kremena of Savory and Sweet continues to delight with her fresh baked pastries in the European Tradition.
Nativo C and S is away this week while Argentine Chef Katriel works his magic at private event. We will have a limited selection of their Spice Blends available at the Community Table at the Farmer’s Market.
Have a favorite vendor you would like to see at the market? Please share their information with us.
