The Wellsboro Growers Market will be open two more Thursdays, weather permitting – this Thursday Oct. 12 and next Thursday, Oct. 19 from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the front lawn of the First Presbyterian Church at 130 Main Street in Wellsboro, next to the Green Free Library.
Among those who will be at the Oct. 12 and 19 markets are Liz McLelland of Yorkshire Meadows, Linda Sweely of New View Farm, Kathy Siegrist of Bakery 303, known as “the pound cake lady,” Staggering Unicorn, which specializes in fruit wines and a variety of wine slushies, and Gary and Cheryl Keeney with fresh produce.
McLelland is well known for her array of goodies from her lemon and lime curd to apple dumplings, scones, assorted cookies, including shortbread, caramel shortbread and lemon bars, jams and other British delights and for her knitted items.
Staggering Unicorn will have new wines to try like spice orange and favorites, such as basil, pineapple-strawberry, pumpkin spice and mojito wines and peach and mulberry slushies.
New View Farm is bringing artisan breads, focaccia, Naan bread, bagels (plain, cinnamon raisin and everything), jams and jellies, homemade sauerkraut, sprouts, ground horseradish and Boston cream cupcakes.
At Bakery 303 will be a variety of pound cakes, including serious chocolate, gluten-free serious chocolate, peach, lemon, lemon-blueberry, coconut and blueberry-cranberry.
Gary and Cheryl Keeney will have winter squash, eggplant, potatoes (Yukon, blue and red), onions, lots of pumpkins and gourds and, if there isn’t a frost, sweet and hot peppers, all from the Keeney Farm.
“Our Growers Market is usually a rain or shine event,” said Jeff Berry. “When there are rain showers, we stay outside under the trees. If there is a downpour or constant, heavy rain, the market will be canceled.”
Growers, bakers, candy makers, maple producers, artisans, craftsmen, musicians and others who want to participate at the Oct. 19 market are asked to email Berry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
