Join us Today from 3-6 pm

I am excited to tell you how 9 vendors bring fresh wares to Pella’s Farmer’s Market.   There will be so many different foods- carefully  grown in these challenging times to bring great, fresh foods to the people of Pella.  There will be corn, apples, great breads, zucchini, onions, and beets galore. Have you cooked fresh beets lately?  They are wonderful- cooked fresh, canned, or pickled.  There is an abundance of cucumbers-  are you eager to make some great pickles?  If you don’t use the whole cabbage, it is wonderful to freeze and use  next January– in soups or  as a veggie in the pot roast.   Be creative- expand your normal routine!
Louise will have some nice heirlooms and slicing tomatoes, a couple of zucchini and yellow crookneck squash, both curly and Lacinato kalecollard greens, a few eggplants, and lots of garlic.  There is one small and one large garlic braid.
It is a matter of your imagination for cooking fresh and it is so fun to  use these fresh items– they have not been sprayed so their color is retained. Why would anyone go to a cafe to  eat fried foods,  no vegetables,  and  over processed foods when there is such a wonderful supply of crisp,  vitamin rich foods  at the finger tips? I hope you  are encouraged to cook well- enjoy fresh  and be so gratified that you have done good things for your over all health.  I hope you will be creative and earnest in your desire for good nutrition and good health.
I am so grateful for the lovely  things that are available at the market. Consider using the market- and not taking it for granted.

Seeking New Vendors for 2019 Season

On behalf of Vivian Rippentrop, our market manager, I am posting to let people know that we have openings for new vendors for the Pella Farmers market.

Markets run on Thursday afternoons from 3:00-6:00pm in the back parking lot area of the First Reformed Church, 605 Broadway, from late April through Halloween.

We seek people who are growing their own local fruits and vegetables, raising chickens, eggs, meats, crafts, and bakers.  Our rule is that people may only sell what they grow, raise, or make locally.

If you are interested in more information, or know of others who might be interested outside of Trader Land, please contact Jim Zaffiro at: zaffiroj@central.edu or Vivian Rippentrop at: rippentropv@central.edu
