Sunday, September 28, 2008


Jeffrey Friedberg and the BOSSY FROG will be at the FOURTH ANNUAL APPLE DAY EVENT sponsored by the Village of Haverstraw Farmers’ Market, with shows at 10:00 AM and 11:00 AM. There is also serious business with healthy recipes, taste testing, the fourth annual apple baking contest and of course wonderfully fresh produce and bakery products to purchase.

Do-Re-Me Farms, HealthwayFarms and Schmid Farm offer the finest selection of produce and The Little Bake Shop has pies, cookies, brownies and an assortment of fresh baked breads. Peacock Hill Farms will return with its Petting Zoo, mushroom logs, fresh meats, eggs and fruits and vegetables.  Summer Street Soaps offers hand crafted, wonderfully fragranced soap.  Cornell University Cooperative Extension will be making apple wraps for you to sample and offering healthy recipes and tips.  Pampered Chef will be on hand with supplies for your kitchen to make cooking easier.

To enter the fourth annual apple-baking contest, just bring to the market by 10:00 AM your favorite home-baked recipe using NY grown apples for the panel to taste.  Judging will take place under the tent at the conclusion of the children’s entertainment.  All entries will be given a token of appreciation and prizes will be awarded to the top three winners in two categories:  children and adults.  Who wouldn’t want to win a gift certificate to the outstanding Union Restaurant, Bricktown Brewery or Soup Stone Café?
