I will be at the Saugerties Farmers Market tomorrow for your shopping pleasure, from 10 am to 2 pm. My usual sales will be in full effect. In the meantime, enjoy some photos from last week’s Farm Animal Day. What a blast! The event was not short on humorously incongruous moments. For example, there was a petting zoo filled with wholesome families and then there was a hula hooping station right next to it that was blaring 50 Cent, Baby Got Back, rave music and other inappropriate tunes. It was perfectly delighful! The only downside was the chickens squished together in a cage. This I am not a fan of at all. One chicken in one cage, maybe, but not ten chickens in one cage. Me and some other vendors were making plans to free them but we were afraid we’d be banned from the market. So let me say this now for the record, if I see such foolishness next year, I’m putting on a disguise and springing them. Done deal.
The Saugerties Farmers Market is back! Please join me and the rest of the awesome vendors for a gorgeous day full of yummy food and great music. Sweet Pea’s will be selling a wide variety of soaps, plus deodorant, shampoo, cleaning sprays and jewelry! And maybe some bug repellent–providing I can stop time long enough to make it.
Opening Day for the 2013 Summer Season of the Saugerties Farmers Market will be May 25th, 10 AM to 2 PM at 119 Main Street Saugerties, NY 12477. We will be offering Fresh and Local fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, honey, flowers, cheeses, breads and on-site dining. The Ceremonial Ribbon Cutting will be a 10 AM with local dignitaries attending. Music will be provided throughout the day by Passero, with a Chef’s demonstration, at 11 AM, presented by Jimmy Tamayo. Art Lab Children’s Art Space project- Glossy Paper Flowers.

Thanks to all my wonderful friends and customers for giving me one of the best days of my life yesterday at the Cayuga Nature Center’s Maple Festival. I haven’t felt such love in a long time. It was great being home, eating too much food, drinking too much great beer, holding babies and catching up with all of you! This needs to happen more than once a year.
A huge thanks goes out to:
● Matt for making sure the event runs smoothly every year. You did well my friend, you can relax now.
□ Kevin for being so darn sweet and for having a birthday at the exact same time so we have even more to celebrate.
♥ Alicia for giving me such a lovely handmade bag. I love it and I love you!
○ Nate and Elana for being such great company.
■ Leona, my angel…and the only person alive to witness my close call with a bandsaw.
⊙ Jeff, my future boss, you still are the nicest person I’ve ever known no matter how hard you try to provoke me.
¤ Maureen, my job could not have ended up in more capable hands. I admire your dedication.
♡ My extended family: Emily, Amy, Sara & Sofia. You complete me. I’m not joking.
* And I must give props to Brent, the brewmaster at Wagner Valley. You are trouble and you make a mighty fine brew….the perfect man!
Please join me and some of my favorite people (and animals) for a fun-filled weekend at the Cayuga Nature Center’s Maple Festival. This has to be my #1 favorite event of the year. It’s just around the corner on Saturday, March 23rd and Sunday, March 24th starting at 9 am each day. There will be a delicious pancake breakfast, music, animal programs, games & crafts, self-guided tours along the Sugarbush Trail and wonderfully talented craft vendors. And hopefully my best buddy from Cayuga Lake Creamery will be there to completely destroy my diet. To learn more and to order tickets click here. I will have my usual soaps (including home brewed beer soap!), jewelry, scarves, bags and whatever else I can think of to stuff on one table.
