Harvest Time in Westfield
Tuesday, August 26, 2014 • 2:46pm
The Farmers’ Market, at the South Avenue train station in Westfield, presented by The Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce is in full swing for the fall. Every Saturday, from 8:30 a.m. until 2 p.m., through Oct. 25, the lot is filled with vendors from all over the state.
The GWACC has put the market together successfully for many years, and this year is no exception. Arrive early and taste breakfast empanadas and coffee from Michelle’s on Prospect or fresh made juice from The Juice House. Our farmers include Donaldson Farms, Peaceful Valley, Skeba Farms, all with top notch local produce, sure to entice the palates of all who stop at their tents.
Fresh pastas from Nicola’s Pasta Fresca in Westfield would go very nicely with oils and balsamic vinegars from Patricia & Paul’s. For dessert, stop at La Petit Temptation for a few pastries or The Lithuanian Bakery for some fine baked goods.
There’s always plenty of snacking with Gourmet Nuts & Fruit, Top of the Mountain Honey Bee Farm and Mo’Pweeze Bakery for gluten-, nut- and wheat-free cakes. Of course, there are entirely prepared meals available at Paolo’s Kitchen. High Mountain Foods can supply a variety of cheeses, pickles, pizzas, pastas and raviolis. New to the market this year, we are happy to have Glenmalure Farms, which provides a selection of grass-fed beef and lamb and free-range chicken. So as you can see, there is quite a variety of vendors to placate every palate. We hope to see you there!
Don’t forget, this year’s Festifall will be held in the streets of Downtown Westfield on Sunday, September 21 at 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., rain or shine.
