Irvington Farmers' Market

Lovely Ellenberger Park is the setting for the Irvington Farmers' Market that takes place the second Sunday of the month through October. That gives you just a couple of more chances to stop by this pretty park (established in 1909!) and get some homegrown food. We picked up some tomatoes for $2/lb. and some wonderful better-eat-them-over-the-sink-because-the-juice-will-be-running-down-your-elbows peaches. We also sampled Country Mouse City Mouse's Romesco which is a delicious spicy spread made with roasted red peppers and chile chipotle. You don't have to wait for a farmers' market to try their goodies though. You can find their products at Kincaid's Meat Market and Joe's Butcher Shop among other places.
