To market, to market

By on October 7, 2015

Sure, the Lititz Farmers Market is ripe with fresh autumn produce, local baked and canned goods, and free-range meats, but it’s also a gathering place.

Meet a friend for a hot cup of coffee, bring the kids for a morning field trip, or take the dog out for a walk. You’ll always bump into someone you know at the market.

The farmers for-the-day are the children of Mariam and Jeremiah Sheedy, who moved to Lititz from Charlotte, N.C., when Jeremiah joined the management team at Wilbur Chocolate.

The season for this year’s market is coming to a close, so don’t miss the final two weeks.

The Lititz Farmers Market is located on North Water Street, half a block north of Main Street, and is open Saturdays from 8 a.m. until noon.

The photos featured here were taken during the market’s Ag Day event on Sept. 19.

Sequester the alpaca (below), and her herd mate Spartan were at Ag Day. The Lancaster Preservation Society (above) held a food swap at the Lititz Farmers Market Ag Day. Their preservation efforts are aimed at food rather than historical sites. For the swap, which was open to anyone, participants brought seven samples of their latest efforts to the market. Six samples were for swapping, one was for tasting. The preservation ladies — the group is open to men as well, but none showed up — are (left to right) Marisa Rosemellia, Lancaster, who brought salted watermelon jelly; Brittney Horst, the Lititz market master, brought bottled kombucha, a fermented tea drink; Kelly Withum, Venture Lititz director, had a 20-spice rub and seed balls for fall planting; Donna Felton, Lititz, had zucchini relish, and Dori Martinez, Lititz, brought an herbal soap.
