Collingswood Farmers Market Update

As the summer has progressed, we have been having a blast at the Collingswood Farmer's Market. Our guacamole made to order on site has been a huge seller, followed closely by our market inspired quesadillas. We have went from spinach & asparagus to mixed squash, to two of my all time favorites, jersey tomato with bacon & esquites which is grilled sweet corn & cheese. We are also selling our house fried chips, salsa & black bean dip. Unfortunately, we had an accident with our juicer & had to suspend market juicing until the parts come in from overseas.

But, this weekend, Lydia reminded me that it was time to put together our Farm Fresh Collingswood menu together & I thought, what the heck, since I have to write it & make it, we should run it for an extra week. So, starting Sunday July 18th, you'll be able to try our awesome local produce picked up from my farmer friends that you see every Saturday at the market. Below is the menu & of course it is subject to minor revisions based on product availability. We are taking all size reservations too.
