Newtown Farmer's Market




Being able to walk to the Farmer's Market is one of the many wonderful things about living in Newtown. The Newtown Farmer's Market is small and only open Thursday thru Saturday, but the food is high quality and tastes great. Not all, but most of the sections are operated by Amish families. Vicki and I didn't bring any pots and pans to Newtown because we planned on getting a new set, but it's been so easy to get good food that we still haven't bought them.

Great photos! I miss the farmer's markets; we're out in the countryside now and it's grow-your-own or drive 20 miles for it! Newtown looks like a lovely place.

A great farmer's market. Glad you invited us to your world. And, as for visiting Jamestown (Va.)sometime, come on down. There's tons to see in this area.

That looks like a great place to nourish the body AND the soul. I don't believe I'd bother to buy new pots and pans either.

How Cool! How's the felafel?

Looks like a wonderful market. Going pots and pan-less sounds like a great idea to me!

Thanks to all, I haven't tasted the falafel yet and I think those brown things a chocolate cookies.

Very nice market you have there. I had such a funny image in my head about amish people selling falafel.

This is a lovely post, James. It looks much like our nearby Landes Meat Market in that it is run by Amish and the meat is processed locally. This operation is one large room but they sell a lot of meat and baked goods. The one you have seems to be much larger and has many more things to buy.

Thanks for your visit to my blogs.

A wonderful market and I bet the food is fresh and contains no chemicals or preservatives. It all looks so wholesome. Great post.

Very interesting farmers' market James!

I love to read posts like yours which include photos of the food stalls! Thanks for showing us this part of your world.

That looks like a wonderful farmer's market. Our state farmer's market isn't too far but too far to walk. That must be wonderful to be within walking distance.

I just love Farmers markets, for all the fresh produce to be had at reasonable prices, but an Amish one would interest me even more.

Martha said...

Oh yum! I love falafel! Looks like a great place! And no pots and pans - I could definitely live like that! :-)
