That's short for Happy National Farmers' Market Week, which wouldn't quite fit on the subject line.

In case you missed it, the USDA has proclaimed the week of August 1-7 “National Farmers' Market Week.” Pretty cool, huh? According to the Dept. of Agriculture, the number of farmers' markets have increased by a bit over 300% since 1994. Guess what? Haymaker Market was already in place before the aggies started keeping track. Thanks to market manager/organizer Fritz Seefeldt and his wife Jo Anne's hard work, this is the Haymaker's 18th year. Intrigued? Here's a link to the history page on the Haymaker website: http://haymakermarket.com/market-history-and-mission/

So are you wondering how to celebrate NFMW? (Seriously? Kind of a no-brainer, there) By going to a farmers' market, of course! In fact, you could meet us at the Haymaker Farmers' Market on Saturday and we can celebrate together between 9-1. We'll be bringing Italian Bread, Dried Tomato Basil Bread, Czech Pastries, Traditional Cookies, Pizzelles, Cinnamon Rolls, Cream Cheese Bear Claws, Muffins, Fruit Snails, and Frosted Cookies, including new Sunflowers. Ooops! Almost forgot to mention the Individual Herbed Focaccia. We make the dough with herb-infused olive oil, brush more on top, dredge them in a combination of Romano and Parmesan cheeses, and then they go their separate ways; some stay plain, others are topped with tomatoes from Heron Hill Farm and/or baby red onions from Bella Terra Farm. Both of these organic farms are regulars at the Haymaker; you'll want to wander a bit south of our booth and gather some ingredients for your own kitchen concoctions! For the directionally challenged – South = toward Summit St.

Whether you get our sweets or savories, you'll want to keep celebrating with this week's Music At the Market guests, Lisa & Heather Malyuk. And by the way, W00T! These folk-singin' sisters are absolutely terrific!! No, no, not a fan here. Not at all. From a quick check of their website, it looks like they've got a new CD out; hopefully they'll have enough copies for all. No crowding, though – bakers first!

In other Kent news, this Saturday is the Black Squirrel Triathlon. It seems cruel, doesn't it? To force our favorite rodents into kayaks, bicycles and finally 10 miles of running – and all in those hot fur coats. But as it turns out, the activities are actually for humans, which means any cruelty is self-inflicted. Here's a link for more information if you'd like to join in, or even if you just want to stand along the route to cheer on the participants. http://www.kentparksandrec.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/2010-Registration-Form.pdf Fun fact: five dollars of each entry fee will be given to the local Boy Scouts, since they'll be assisting with event operations.
