Top 6 Locally Sourced, Must-Experience Vendors
- Mister Lee's Noodles: Perhaps the most highly anticipated vendor at the market, an Asian-inspired ramen noodle bar. Try Mister Lee's Dirty Noodles, featuring noodles Chizmar makes himself. This dish features mushroom-dashi, chashu (a type of barbecued pork in Cantonese cuisine), 60-minute egg, soy, mushrooms and local greens.
- Dundore & Heister (butcher): It's pretty much impossible not to drool at everything offered as they are front and center in the market and with good reason. Stop by and watch the plaid-shirt wearing butchers break down cuts of meat in minutes. They focus exclusively on four meats: lamb, beef, poultry and pork, that come from local farms that don't use antibiotics or hormones, and pasture-raise their animals. It's a whole-animal butcher, meaning as little as possible of the animals is thrown away. The meats are cut fresh and the trained butchers are there on site to guide you on what's the best cut.
- Scratch (beer and pizza): If artisan pizza and craft beer sound good, you'll want to stop at this stand. Scratch is a collaboration between Apple Ridge Farm and ShawneeCraft Brewing of the Pocono Mountains. Watch your pizza being made and baked in an 800-degree wood oven. Try a specialty pie such as the "Garlic Three Ways" (white pizza with fresh ricotta, mozzarella, garlic confit, shaved raw garlic and black garlic sauce) and pair it with a Belgian-style wheat beer brewed with bitter orange and Mediterranean coriander.
- Chocodiem: If you love chocolate that's as beautiful as it is delicious, you'll want to check out Chocodiem of Clinton, N.J. These are Belgian chocolates hand-made on the premises. Try the pearl truffles, filled with dark chocolate ganache or any flavor of your choice, then dipped in white chocolate and finished with an iridescent sugar. Chocodiem also has a beautiful rainbow of macaroons.
- Tolino Vineyards: While you're eating local, you can drink local, too, at Tolino Vineyards' stand. Tolino, which is near Bangor, has been a regular at the Easton Farmers’ Market so it makes sense they would be part of the public market. You can grab a meal at one of the vendors and get a glass of Tolino's wine or take a bottle or two home. Could be a good time to try a bottle of Chambourcin, made from the Lehigh Valley's grape.
- Highmark Farmstand: With gorgeous greens, fresh fruits and more, the farmstand is almost like its own farmers-market-within-the-market. You also can buy fresh pasta, dried pasta, sauces, spreads and dairy, as well as local honey and syrup.
The Market is open year-round, Wednesday’s through Saturday’s 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Sunday’s 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Some vendors will have additional hours.
