A Warm Homestead Thank You!

Difficult times can challenge the bonds of any community, but as always, our wonderful Lambertville community has shown its strength, loyalty and understanding. We’ve met lots of new people, and we thank you all so much for your continued support of our business.

We’re doing our best to keep you supplied with as much fresh produce, bread, meat, dairy, frozen and prepared foods and shelf-stable pantry items as we can bring in. Sometimes supply chains are disrupted without notice, and you may not find everything you’d normally expect, so we appreciate your patience and understanding when this happens. We’re bringing in new products too, so check our Facebook page or Instagram for updates!

Homestead produce shelves stocked

Please know that our team is doing their very best to fill your orders correctly, answer your calls, take your orders, handle deliveries and curbside pickup orders, and get you into the store as quickly as possible in compliance with our new COVID-19 protections, all in addition to their normal workload. We’re so appreciative of their dedication and wonderful work ethic. Our staff members are working extra hard under more difficult conditions and are greatly appreciative of your tips.

Introducing…

…some new products and suppliers! We’ve had a wonderful response to our freshly baked LeBus Bakery (King of Prussia, PA) breads, rolls, and scones (they go really well with our jams, preserves, and jellies!). LeBus’s artisan baked goods are all hand made with natural ingredients, and they deliver to us regularly.

We’re now offering fresh seafood from Hellers Seafood Market (Warrington, PA)! Their salmon, cod, scallops and shrimp are delivered a few times a week – please feel free to call ahead to tell us what type of seafood you’d like so we can order it to make sure we have enough, and we’ll let you know when it comes in.

You’ll find new award-winning barbecue sauces and rubs on our shelves from BBQ Buddha, a local company based in New Egypt, NJ. Their products are all-natural, gluten-free, and free of additives, artificial flavors and colors…and absolutely delicious!

It’s Gardening Time!

Gardening is a great way to spend some time outside in the fresh air and sunshine, both of which are beneficial to your health and help with relaxation. Lots of people are growing their own veggies and planting COVID Victory Gardens – you can give yours a head start with our farm-raised tomato (heirloom varieties too), lettuce and herb plants!

Plus we have beautiful flowering plants and colorful foliage plants to brighten your yard, planters, and porch, as well as gardening supplies to keep everything healthy.

Your Lunch And Dinner Are Ready

Homestead is still making prepared foods for you to take home for lunch and dinnerJust because you can’t eat out right now doesn’t mean you can’t take a break from meal preparation and have something different! We’re still offering prepared foods with specials Monday through Friday (including Siam), and this season we’re also making half-pans of homemade meat or veggie lasagna for your dinner table. Just call ahead for lasagna or Market Meals and we’ll have them ready for you to pick up in-store or we’ll bring your orders curbside and put them right in your trunk. Check our website for daily specials, and don’t forget to treat yourself to some dessert – our pies and cookies are boxed and wrapped for safety, and we all deserve some delicious indulgences these days!

Support Small Local Businesses

Most small businesses are trying to adapt to the “new normal” wherever they can, but it can be a struggle. Our small business has always been committed to helping farmers and other small businesses by carrying as many of their local products as possible. Please support the small businesses in our community whenever you can so they can still be there for you when restrictions are relaxed.

Just A Reminder…

Our store hours this season are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. seven days a week. Also, we have a special COVID-19 page on our website where you can see what we’re doing to help keep our customers safe; there are also links to local resources. Feel free to call in your order and pay by phone to get contact-free curbside pickup or local delivery.

Summer may be ending, but we’ve still got plenty of Jersey Fresh produce continuing to come in after Labor Day and right through fall! Here are just some of the local crops you’ll find here through October:

Apples
Beets
Broccoli
Cabbage
Corn
Lettuce
Peppers
Pumpkins
Tomatoes – until the first frost
(Also a special variety of German heirloom tomatoes grown on

We’ll also have Jersey Fresh eggplant, peaches and nectarines until their growing season ends— typically mid-September—unless Mother Nature grants us more time!

Of course, as New Jersey’s produce season wanes, we’ll still have plenty of fresh USA crops in our farm market, along with our fully stocked baked goods, house-made prepared dishes, and a full selection of pantry items.

You can see our full Jersey Fresh harvest schedule (dates are approximate) with the fruits and veggies we’ll have available right through December here.

Here come the mums! Our greenhouse and yard are filled with autumn beauty – mums and a few other flower varieties have just come in, ready and waiting to bloom in your garden and on your porch!
