10am to 1pm 



Dear friends,
logo 1

News!  June was celebrated as Farmers' Market month by the NYS Assembly this week!   Several farmer market managers traveled to Albany to talk about their markets and local farming.  PB Inc is scheduled for a sit down with Assemblymember Didi Barrett on Friday to talk about all the wonderful growth taking place in Philmont and just how community involvement is the magic for making it all take shape.  We'll be talking Philmont Farmers' Market and our local farmers; the start-up plans for the Philmont Market and Cafe Co-op and the Collaboration Team efforts; the Summit Lake Area Revitalization Project as a NYS BOA Office of Communities and Waterfronts project with the Village of Philmont; and of course plenty of ideas how the Assembly can help with growing our community! 


How did the market do last Sunday?   
Philmont Market & Cafe Co-op - cheese sampling

Lots of activity sampling local cheeses at the Philmont Market & Cafe Co-op stand!  Great pesto locally made in Philmont by OLIVIA, and we hear the Co-op now has two new members who signed up by coming to the market!  Did you try that iced Moca Coffee with that wicked cream on top?  Well done for the Co-op, Elizabeth Angello, and all those dedicated volunteers!


A round of applause goes to Common Hands Farm Project - no small feat for a local farmer to produce such great tasting vegetables with the weather as we've seen these last few months. 


Common Hands Farm Project

Common Hands - pea shoots 

Thank you Dan McManus and Tess Parker and your project farm helpers - try the kohlrabi and those amazing pea shoots - great for an early summer salad.  

Try their CSA to pick up every Sunday in Philmont at the market cutting down your travel miles. Now that's so simple. 

Shopping tip:  If your vegetables are looking the worse for hot weather when you return from the market - take them out of their bags and stick'em in the vegetable cooler drawer - they'll perk right up again and appreciate your care.  Freshly harvested vegetables will last several days longer than store purchased if you treat them kindly.
