Homestead News

To everyone in our wonderful community: Ed and I have some bittersweet news to share with you. After a LOT of consideration for many months, we have decided it’s time to enter the next phase of our lives and retire. This was an extremely difficult decision for us, but we feel the time is right, and we wanted to let our community family know.

Homestead will continue the same as always through the end of the 2020 season, and it is our hope that someone will continue our dream of Homestead! Perhaps someone will seize the opportunity to continue Homestead as a year-round business.  

We are so grateful to our customers for your continued support and also to our employees, without whom we couldn’t do what we do.

Now on to our other updates.

Flavors of Fall

The crisp air of fall is arriving, which means that pumpkins, gourds, mums, Jersey Fresh apples, pumpkin pie, apple cider and a fall favorite—apple cider donuts—and more are all now waiting for you in our farm market!

We’re also busy making our pumpkin-cranberry bars and our pumpkin bread, both of which will be available through December. We’ll have apple cider donuts through October, and we’re currently working on our 2020 holiday menu, which will be out shortly.

Your Generosity

We’re happy to report that the donations we’ve collected so far this year for Farmers Against Hunger has amounted to $533! Thank you for your continued generosity in helping FAH to reduce food insecurity and food waste.

New Products In Our Market

We’re now carrying a variety of Rice Select products, from Texmati (the first aromatic rice successfully grown in the US!) to tri-color couscous to their newest product, tri-color quinoa. Quinoa is gluten-free and loaded with minerals as well as all nine amino acids, so while you’re adding a tasty ingredient to your meals, you’re also adding a healthy one!

Low in calories but high in protein, Kitchen Basics Bone Broth is a super healthy and super tasty way to strengthen your immune system just in time for cold and flu season. Great for sipping, as the basis for more complex soups, or as an ingredient in your recipes.

Fresh produce every day. Locally grown produce in season. Homemade lunches and dinners to go. Fresh-baked award-winning pies.

September—the gateway to fall—is already upon us! We’re expecting to have the first fall flowers in next week—watch our Facebook page for their arrival! The summer has given us a bounty of delicious Jersey Fresh local fruits and veggies, and Lambertville has given us some fun and exciting ways to support our local businesses as they continue navigating their way through these challenging times. In case you missed them on our Facebook page, here are 2 programs going on right now:

Lambertville New Hope Rotary Club and Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce (DRTCC) Partnership

Now through September, you can help make a difference by just posting pictures of business storefronts in Lambertville and New Hope, then posting them to social medial with a special hashtag. Here’s the info from the DRTCC website:

The Rotary Club will make a donation to Fisherman’s Mark to battle food insecurity and related issues for every photo of storefronts of businesses in the Lambertville/New Hope area. The total amount to be donated by the Rotary Club is up to $1,000 during August and September 2020. There is no obligation to make any purchase or to enter any facility.

Just safely visit the location, take a photo of the storefront, and post it on social media with #loveourshops. Both the DRTCC and the Lambertville New Hope Rotary Club invite your participation but ask that you do so in a safe manner, wearing facial coverings, and practicing social distancing as appropriate.

Market Meals Update

Have you seen our Facebook posts about the new way we’re doing our Market Meals? The change offers a more contact-free in-store pickup, and you don’t need to call in your order in advance anymore (unless you prefer curbside pickup). Here’s how it works:

  • Choose from 3 mains: Mediterranean chicken, sandwich, or soup.
  • Choose 2 sides: there will be standard sides as well as weekly additional sides to choose from. Salads and additional sides will already be in containers – no extra contact.
  • Each week the new additional sides will be pinned here on Facebook and will be on our website.
  • Standard sides (always available): Garden Salad, Chips, Bottle of Water, Piece of Fruit, Cookie (individually wrapped)
  • Additional sides (change weekly): Updated weekly; pinned to Facebook, at our deli counter, and updated on website (ly/HomesteadDailyMenu)

New Products In Our Market

Partners Snack Crackers are made by a second-generation family-owned bakery based in the Pacific Northwest that takes pride in using “recipes from kitchens, not formulas from factories”. We now carry several varieties of their snack crackers, including roasted sweet onion, olive oil & herb, traditional butter, and cracked black pepper.

Short on time? Al Dente Pastas cook up “tender but firm in just 3 minutes”, born from one entrepreneurial woman’s idea to create a pasta that “tastes like fresh, cooks quickly like fresh, but has the convenience of a dried pasta”. We have a few different types to suit every taste and preference, including plant-based red lentil & sweet potato, whole wheat fettuccini, and golden egg bonnetti.
