It’s citrus season and the folks at Girdletree Gardens are offering a new lemon Amish friendship bread.  Slice it and spread it with a smear of sweet cream butter for breakfast, enjoy it with a cup of hot tea or coffee for an afternoon treat or toast it lightly and top with a scoop of ice cream and drizzle of honey for a sensational finish to your evening meal.  Try this new bread or one of Girdletree Garden’s other tempting flavors.

Pureblend Teas offers a unique line of herbal teas and has a knowledgeable tea specialist to talk about it! This is Kelly’s first year at the market, and she loves connecting with new customers and talking about her products.  The selection of teas includes flavors such as Candy Apple, Celtic Cream and the popular Organic Matcha and vegan raw hot cocoa mix.
