The 2011 Coudersport Courthouse Square Farmers Market Opens!

We finally opened yesterday!  I didn't have much to sell due to the cold, wet spring we've had.  I had my free-range eggs and some beautiful, almost ready to bloom chives (try them chopped up in your scrambled eggs or use the pretty blooms in a salad, yum!), but I filled out my booth with Carol Jackson's wonderful jams, jelly, and preserves and with Brydonson Farm's maple syrup and maple mustard. I also put out handmade cherry and oak hampers, potato and onion bins, and cutting boards made by Carol's son and soy candles (so much better for you).  Unfortunately the hampers and bins will only be offered the one day because they are hard to  move and I'm afraid I'm going to damage them!

Hydeaway Farm was there with tons and tons of beautiful flower baskets and plant six-packs.  In the next few weekends he'll be bringing more perennials and small shrubs.  I think, with the warm weather, that people are finally getting the fever to plant!

We did pretty well.  I pretty much sold out of most of my jams and jellies.  You know you're doing something good for the world when you can buy something that is made or grown, from start to finish, right near where you live!
