Piazza at Schmidt's Market Opens

Over in Northern Liberties, Saturday marked the debut of the farmers' market at the Piazza at Schmidt's.

Earl Livengood and Tom Coulton were among the Philadelphia farmer's markets regulars who made it for the opening. Among the other purveyors, one new to me was M&B Farview Farm of Hamburg, which raises beef cattle (including Charlolais and Black Angus), Tamworth and Old Spot pigs, Oberhasli, Nubian and cross-breed goats (for milk and meat).

I didn't make it this past Saturday, but the Piazza folks say nearly two dozen vendors will make it this Saturday, including a bunch who sell at the May-December Headhouse Square market. On the list:

Amaranth Gluten Free Bakery, Beck's Cajun Cafe, Big Sky Bakery, Birchrun Hill Farms, Culton Organics, Griggstown Family Farm, Ha Ha Hot Sauce, Highland Orchards, Joe Coffee, Just Dogs! Gourmet, La Baguette Bakery, Landisdale Farms, Livengood Produce, M&B Farview Farm, Market Day Canele, Natural Meadows Farm, Penn Herb, Savoie Organic Farm, Shellbark Hollow Farm, Summers' Salsa, Weavers Way Co-Op, and Wild Flour Bakery.
