Get Fresh in Black Diamond!

We are in our third week at the Black Diamond Farmers Market and things are heating up!

Come over on Friday between 11 and 3 for awesome fruit and veggies! The big harvest for cherries this year has yielded a variety of varieties including the Rainiers, Dark Sweet Cherries and a new one called “Strawberry Cherries.” They are all prime in freshness and sweetness!

Load up on fresh asparagus, peas, leeks and anything that looks good for the weekend. Strawberries are incredible this year and ours are picked fresh in the morning! One little basket won’t last long–get a half flat and be ready to eat them right out of the box; they are so sweet that sugar isn’t necessary.

New and notable are our food vendors. Frank’s FRANKS is a real hit here with rich, fresh beef dogs and all the fixings. He gets pretty creative with apple sausage and spicy links as well!

Everyone is raving about the pizza vendor–A FIRE INSIDE. Their truck actually contains a wood fired brick oven that heats up to over 600 degrees! Ultra thin crust cradles fresh ingredients and you can stand and watch as it bakes in minutes.

Be sure to get some strawberry shortcake this week because they won’t be back until late July! These are CJ’s fresh, flaky biscuits, ladled with heaps of sweet berries and piled high with rich cream.
Probably the best strawberry shortcake I’ve ever had!

Our feature vendor this week is Paperdelle’s Pasta and they sell exclusively at Farmer’s Markets! Variety, quality and a huge array of shapes and sizes of pastas will blow your mind. They put the dried pasta section of any grocery store to shame; come and meet these folks!

Schwann’s, Smith Brothers Milk, Juice Plus, jewelry, crafts and many other offerings will be here this Friday.

Plus live music with two different bands…

I never leave this market without armloads of fresh food and beautiful crafts. School is out, summer is here.

Come on down!

Black Diamond has a Farmers Market!

We are getting set to launch our second year of The Black Diamond Farmers Market!

Our inaugural year, the summer of 2013, brought many visitors, vendors and a healthy dose of wisdom. This year we have a board of advisors (successful vendors from last year) who bring fresh viewpoints and extra hands to make the process even more rewarding.

Our Friday Markets will be open from 11 am to 3 pm. This is in direct response to the best flow of traffic from last year.
We are adding Special Event days to our lineup; a petting zoo by the local 4-H, planting and potting demonstrations, a health fair, children’s activities, a photo booth, and of course, more food, farmers, vendors and crafts.

This Market is dedicated to inviting and encouraging local businesses! We are building a special display that provides the community and visitors with info about where and what to find in our immediate area. Not all Black Diamond businesses can spare the people or time to set up a weekly booth, but we hope to represent their products in our kiosk and display. Anyone that operates in or serves the people of Black Diamond, both for-profit and non-profit groups, may feature their service at the Market with brochures, cards, flyers, menus, maps or product displays. It is absolutely FREE.

We are accepting applications for those who want to vend at our Fun, Fresh and Friendly market! Get your application in as soon as possible. Opening Day is June 6. See you here!
