Collegeville Farmers’ Market’s “Cool Yule” celebration is today, and they are celebrating Christmas in July!!! It will feature all the fresh local veggies and fruit that you can’t come by in December, plus holiday fun and festive flavors like gingerbread, peppermint… and more. Plus, we’ll be decking the “stalls” with holiday decorations and getting a huge jump on our Christmas shopping.
Christine and Company will be entertaining with their crowd-pleasing acoustic sound, and a few Christmas songs as well. Frecon Farms will be rolling out their “Early Man” cider and helping to boost Christmas spirits. All Hands in the Cookie Jar will be baking gluten-free and allergen-free Christmas cookies in lots of fun shapes, plus GF vanilla-cranberry bread and mini pumpkin bread loaves. ICED By Betsy cupcakes will bring visions of sugar plums to life with amazing flavors like egg nog, peppermint and hot cocoa. Jenny and Frank’s Artisan Gelato will also be there serving up some White Chocolate Peppermint Gelato to make spirits bright!
Great ideas for entertaining are available at our market this Saturday, and every week! These include: Yellow Springs Farms artisan goat cheese, Fat Head Peppers gourmet peppers, international treats like falafel and baba ganoush from Philading, fresh guacamole made onsite by Anita’s Guacamole, Fresh Apeel Hummus and more. Bendy Brook Farm provides free-range poultry and eggs and chemical-free, pastured, beef, pork and even goat. So making a special healthy meal is easy…especially with the bounty of organically raised veggies from Down Home Acres and Longview Center for Agriculture, plus fresh fruit from Frecon Farms. The possibilities seem endless here at the Collegeville Farmer’s Market, there really seems to be something for everyone.
Get ahead of the game! You can shop early for Christmas gifts like original clothing and jewelry designs by Kay Bryant, perennial plants and trees from Behmerwald Nursery, and hand-crafted wood items and pens from Neil’s Sharpening Service. Neil will also sharpen your knives, scissors and garden tools while you wait.
And don’t forget your furry friends. Joe Paws Bakery has baked special holiday treats just for them.
