Davidson Exotic Mushrooms, Black Bird Heritage Farm (open-pollinated heirloom produce), La Colombe Coffee, Spice of Life gluten-free bakery, Slow Rise Bakery, Two Ganders Farm (honey) and Young’s Garden are among the Headhouse vendors scheduled for the opening Saturday. In June Glass Jar Gourmets (spreads) will join the roster. The Saturday market will be held on the east side of Second Street adjacent to the Shambles.
Fairmount opens this Thursday with Earl Livengood qs one of the anchors. Also returning is Bill Weller, who opens the season with seedlings and potted plants and later will bring his produce. New to the market will be Country Meadows Farms (Reuben and Amos Lapp) with frozen beef, broilers, lambs, turkeys, pullets, as well as eggs. Versailles will be there under its new name, Marcel’s Bakery.
In other Food Trust farmers’ market news, the South Street West market is changing its venue to the corner of Broad & South, hoping to catch some subway commuters. It was located at South & 15th.
