Penn's Corner News

Posted 3/8/2010 9:30am by Penn's Corner Farm Alliance.


What’s happening at Penn’s Corner …

  1. We have added a few CSA pick up locations!  New to our list are a Monroeville location, a pick up at the Environmental Charter School at Frick Park and a Chatham eastside location which is located near the intersection of Penn and 5th Avenues.  In addition,
    our Lawrenceville pick up has been moved from the old Penn Avenue location to Dozen Bake Shop, 3511 Butler St 15201.  Finally, our Brighton Heights pick up has been moved also but is very near the old location.  More details to come!  Current members are always welcome to change their pick up if a new one is more convenient.  Just let us know.
  2. Chatham College is holding the first annual LOCAL FOOD SHOWCASE- a Grower/Buyer Event and Penn’s Corner will be there! The event will be held on Thursday March 11, 2010 from 1-4pm at Chatham University.  This is a great opportunity to find local sources of fresh and processed foods for retail, restaurant, CSA, wholesale, farm markets, and home use. Click here to read more about the event.  Neil and I will be there and love to meet Penn's Corner CSA members so be sure to come and say hello to us if you make it to this event!
  3. Legume Bistro will be holding a Penn’s Corner Farm Alliance dinner on Thursday March 18th.  Click on this link to read more from their chef about the details.  Neil and I will be there and hope to see some of you there.  It’s a great opportunity to enjoy a wonderful, local meal comprised of products grown by your farmers and prepared by one of Pittsburgh’s premier chef’s.  And you may get to know some of your fellow Penn’s Corner devotes in the process!
  4. Our Cabin Fever share will begin on April 13th and 14th.  We well be sending out a Google payment request at the end of March for folks that still have a balance on their accounts.  We ask that members pay 1/2 of their remaining balance by the time our Cabin Fever share begins in April.  
  5. Our March 15th Farm Stand Product List went out last Friday.  I just got a call from David Yoder at Nu Way Farm.  This wonderful sunshine that are are experiencing has gotten his spinach and arugula up and growing in full swing.  That means that we have 1/2 pound bags of each for $5 and $6 respectively, in addition to the Product List.  Remember to get your order in by this Wednesday. 
Enjoy the sunshine!
