To Market, To Market

On Sunday morning Rick and I went to the farmer’s market in Warwick, New York. Warwick is not very far away, about a 15 to 20 minute drive. As I’ve mentioned before, we are very close to the New York border! We’ve driven to Warwick once before but never down into the business district. We were intrigued, however, after passing a winery, a U-Pick-It apple orchard and a creamery, all in what looked like a lovely setting. On this beautiful Sunday morning we chose to drive up the east side of Greenwood Lake since Kim and Mark had mentioned there were a couple of good restaurants on this side and we wanted to see where they were. A very pretty drive! We are going to try out at least one of the restaurants when my Mom is here this week. They both have outdoor seating with a view of the lake, and one is right on the lake. Anyway, I digress. This is supposed to be about the farmer’s market.

We found the market with no problem at all, just off the main business district [which by the way needs a lot more exploring, including a book shop]. It’s not a large market, but what they do have is all quality, organic, local goods. There were stalls selling gorgeous plants, huge freshly baked pies and tarts, goat cheese, artisan bread, fresh pesto [we bought some], all kinds of fresh salad greens [all organic], a french style bakery was selling mini quiches and pastries. My favorite stall, Bobolink Dairy, was sellling homemade cheeses and hearty breads baked in a wood fired oven. We bought some cheddar and a cheese called foret [pronounced the french way: four-ay]. People in front of use were buying huge slices out of a wheel of bread that had whole cloves of garlic baked right in. We couldn’t resist that either.

Our next stop was the Warwick Winery booth. We sampled the Riesling, Chardonnay, and a blend they call Nadia. We bought some of each. Now we had lunch and then some! There was a stall selling fresh duck, rabbit, ribs and more out of their truck and we almost bought a rabbit. Next week, maybe. We’ll be back! I have a feeling you’ll be hearing a lot about Warwick. We picked up a schedule of events for the summer and there are all kinds of festivals taking place. Here is a photo from the market and one of the old train station.
