The Saratoga Farmers’ Market invites you to celebrate Easter with them. Their day-before-Easter Saturday market will offer several specials on fresh vegetables, meats, and prepared foods.
For children of all ages, the volunteer Friends of the Market group is offering a no-mess egg dying activity. If dying your own eggs isn’t your thing, pick up some pre-decorated eggs at Malta Ridge Orchard & Garden.
Mrs. London’s is featuring freshly baked hot cross buns among its other selections of pastries, breads, and sandwiches. The Chocolate Spoon will have teacakes in citrus ricotta, chocolate, bourbon butter, carrot cake and lemon varieties. Malta Ridge also has freshly baked fruit pies and cookies among its offerings. The market's vegetable vendors have a wide selection of root vegetables, fresh greens, onions and garlic.
Fill your basket with spun maple sugar and molded maple sugar candies from Slate Valley Farm, jars of Saratoga Peanut Butter, packages of Saratoga Crackers, and Ballston Lake Apiaries honey products. Add a package of Wash Green & Clean’s all natural laundry soap, and top it with Malta Ridge’s fresh cut pussy willow branches.
The Saratoga Farmers’ Market is at the Lincoln Baths Building in the Saratoga Spa State Park, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturdays through April. The market moves to High Rock Park 3-6 p.m. Wednesdays and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturdays on May 3.
