Captain Rick of Pura Vida Fisheries can be relied upon to bring our favorite seafood items, and also present us with surprises too. Keep your winter menu interesting by checking each week to see what the Captain has caught. And you're if interested in trying a new fish, ask Ryan (Pura Vida's representative at our market) for some helpful recipe ideas.
Phelps Health Tip:
"Bone-loving nutrients go beyond calcium. Bones need magnesium, vitamin B12, vitamin C, vitamin D and vitamin K. Get these nutrients from a variety of foods offered at the Market including cheeses, eggs, Brussels sprouts, arugula, mesclun, spinach, baby kale and "oily" fish."

Tired Lately? Our Prescription is Garlic
Stores of regionally grown garlic can last well into the new year. At least they would if garlic wasn't one of the most popular items at the Market. For now though, well stored garlic from the fall harvest remains abundant at Neversink Farm, Cowberry Crossing Farm and Gajeski Produce. If leafless trees and early sunsets are leaving you without energy, know that Hippocrates (the father of Western medicine himself) prescribed garlic to treat fatigue. Stock up on energizing garlic.
Visiting Organization 9:00am - 12:45pm
Axial Theater, which operates out of St. John's Episcopal Church, will visit to highlight their upcoming show Twisted Valentines. Stop by Saturday to learn about the Axial Theater, and for more information on the production click here.

Demi Olive Oil
Demi Olive Oil visits Saturday with their pure, extra virgin olive oil produced from olives grown on their farm in Greece.
Neversink Farm: Fresh Radishes
Recently Neversink's French Breakfast Radishes reached maturity and began to be brought to the Market. Winter-grown, they're fresh, crisp, and less spicy than those grown in the summer. Slice them thin and enjoy with mayonnaise on a slice of toasted Market bread.
Orwasher's: Dark Chocolate Challah
Starting this week Orwasher's Bakery will have their Dark Chocolate Challah. Usually baked for Valentine's Day once a year, Orwasher's brings this treat a little earlier for Market shoppers. If a description is even needed: decadent for a dessert or a sweet snack and baked with a heart shape on top, this artisanal bread contains delicious chocolate chunks and a hint of cinnamon. Sweet!
Teagevity: Iced Tea To Go
In a hurry? Pick up an elegant bottle of Teagevity's pre-brewed iced tea. Try their popular Hibiscus Pineapple or the Blood Orange & Hibiscus.
SHOPPER DONATION BIN
Consider contributing food: The Market maintains a bin every Saturday so shoppers may "buy an extra item of produce" to contribute to families in need. This bin is located in the center of the Market every week. Volunteers from the Pleasantville Community Garden collect all items at the end of the day, along with donations from farmers, and deliver them promptly to organizations such as Hillside Food Outreach.
Since its establishment in June 2014, the Pleasantville Community Garden has donated a total of 29,160 pounds of fresh food! All this food has gone to kids, adults and seniors who don't have enough. This provides nutrition, which is expensive, but is very needed for people, and our communities, to remain healthy.
