Headhouse Square Farmers Market

If you still haven’t been down to the Headhouse Square Farmers Market, now open on Saturday and Sunday, get there! It’s a cute little spot with a nice selection of breads and pastries, plants, fruit and vegetables, fresh-cut flowers, cheese and (if you’re into it) meat.

Heirloom plants are grown from a vast array of traditional seeds, many forgotten and not widely distributed. Think there are only three kinds of tomatoes? Think again! I got a purple zebra-striped variety.

Peppers!

I love hot peppers, and picked up a type called “rat turd” from Happy Cat Organics.

Basil

By the bunch or the plant, it’s one of my favorite herbs.

So fresh it’s kept in a tub of ice water.

It’s always apple season in Pennsylvania, and the varieties at Headhouse abound.

I LOVE all the different varieties of goat cheese sold by Patches of Star Farm. Salted chevre and garlic chive queso fresco are some of my favorites.
