Bittersweet Market Day

Tomorrow, Thursday, October 9, will be the last farm market at Blue Pike Farm. Sadly, it is not just the last market of the season but the last market at Blue Pike Farm, period. Due to an enormous rent increase Carl is being forced off of the property.This is a truly sad day for Carl and all those who have enjoyed coming to the farm.

I hope to see a lot of people at this final market. So many of you have been coming over the years. This will  be the last chance. I appreciate all the support you have shown to Carl, myself and the other vendors. We all want things to end on as positive a note as possible.

Besides Carl with all sorts of great produce and his own honey there will be:

My stuff. I will be bringing all of my most popular baked treats including chocolate beet cake, pumpkin cake, zucchini and pumpkin breads and some surprises. I will also have Concord grape jelly in somewhat limited supply and our own Blue Pike Farm Pickled Hot Peppers. I will also have herb seasoning packets, cookbooks and some free treats for all who come to say good bye.

Dawn, of Alexander’s Alchemy has a great selection home made soaps and a new line of infused honey. She uses locally sourced ingredients and incorporates honey and wax from the bees of E Pluribus Apiary from Blue Pike Farm.

Canaan Fair Trade will offer extra virgin olive oil ( some from trees that are over 500 years old)  and associated products: infused oils (garlic, peppercorn and chili pepper flavors), olive oil soap, hand-rolled couscous, zataar (a Middle Eastern spice), and three tapandes ( honey-olive, sun-dried tomato and green olive and caper)


To thank all of you Carl will be giving away garlic with a very interesting history. I am sure he will tell you, if you ask.

I want to thank so many of you for all the support you have shown. I will miss that very much.


Blue Pike Farm is located at 900 e. 72 street, just 1/2 mile South of the Shoreway. Market hours are from 4-7 pm.
