September Market Monthly Partner:
Owner and operator Heather Fish named Hatch Hollow, her art gallery, art store, and co-working space in Meadville, PA, after the village where local investigative journalist Ida Tarbell was born. She explained that she was looking for local women historical figures to honor as she sought to open a space focused on collaboration, sustainability, and community.
Heather is joining us as September’s Market Monthly Partner. At the Market, Hatch Hollow will be offering art supplies and kits for all ages and skill levels through the end of September. Join us on September 16 from 11 to 1 to meet Heather and create your own hands on art activity. More details to follow!
New Producer Profile:
Pineapple Eddie’s Southern Bistro
Pineapple Eddie’s Southern Bistro, an Erie, PA staple when it comes to delicious, seasonally-inspired meals, has branched out into the sauce world. Their Kickstarter for this product launched in 2022, and has come to fruition for retail at Edinboro Market and a few other select, local locations. Try this marinade on chicken, pulled pork, or grilled veggies when you’re looking for some Southern-inspired heat!
New Producer Profile: Richard’s Maple Products
From 95 miles away in Chardon, OH, Richard’s Maple Products specializes in all things maple (as the name might imply.) This company buys high-grade maple syrup to make their delicious maple products. Some shoppers have requested more dressings, we thought these would be perfect with fall salads right around the corner.
Thanks to all of you who joined us at our
Farm to Table Dinner!
We had a wonderful time on Saturday, August 26th at Goodell Gardens.
Good weather, good food, good music, good people…:)
We’d like to extend a special thank you to our event chefs Micah Goring (left), Kristen Weeks (right), and Stephanie Ciner, (not pictured), as well as the kitchen prep team, for an excellent meal that included ingredients from 25 local farms!
Dinner ‘leftovers’ were packaged and donated to the Pay What You Can Farm Stand at Unity in Edinboro on Monday, August 28th, ensuring nothing went to waste. Speaking of waste, THANK YOU for helping us make this another successful low waste event! Everyone brought their own place settings and we were
impressed with your creativity.
Below are a couple photos of from the event including Contra dancing, socializing, Toppish members Fred and Jack, (caller Mary is not pictured), and Jeff proudly standing with his new E-bike. (Thank you photographers Livia and Katie!).
Congratulations to Jeff Vaitekunas, the winner of our E-Bike Raffle with 814 Outdoor Sports! A special thank you to everyone who entered this fundraising raffle!
Food for Thought: Here’s a chance to put your money where your mouth is! 😉
As you may know, we’ve been grant writing to cover the costs of an expansion that will double our retail space and open a café that highlights local ingredients. This café will also function as a classroom for those interested in farming and food careers, and the certified commercial kitchen will be rentable by the hour.
We are fundraising the $35,000 down payment for this new space. You can help us support those who are growing and making food intentionally to feed their community by making a donation, in person, over the phone, or on our website.
