Downtown Harrisonburg in the Turner Pavilion
228 S. Liberty St. Tuesdays andSaturdays
8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Although many people mark the return to school and the Labor Day Holiday as the end of summer, the Astronomical Summer does not end until September 23rd. As we transition between seasons, we are still enjoying the endless varieties of plump, summer Heirloom tomatoes, and sweet, savory, and hot peppers. At the same time we are starting to see the first of the cooler weather fruits such as grapes and apples. Please join us and take advantage of all that the relaxed and abundant Tuesday Market has to offer.
Crazy Fox Coffee reports: “This week’s featured coffee is Costa Rica La Amistad. Hacienda La Amistad has operated an organic, fair trade, shade-grown coffee estate since 1940, set deep in the rainforest that they actively conserve. They have also acted as a ‘gate keeper’ to protecting Costa’s Rica’s extremely diverse biosphere since the 1960s. The coffee and fruit project is one of the largest and oldest continually certified organic projects in the Americas. Established in 1937, the farm has been growing organically long before there was even a certification process. The owner of La Amistad’s lodge and reserve, Roberto Montero, was recognized 15 years ago by The Smithsonian for efforts to protect the biosphere. In the past 5 years, Mr. Montero has enacted changes in his coffee and fruit production in order to ensure that he leaves a zero-carbon footprint. We will also have Sumatra, Back Porch Blend, Colombian, and a chemical free, water processed decaf by the cup or bag, as well as iced-coffee. Be sure to stop by and enter your name in this week’s drawing for a free bag of Crazy Fox Coffee. Sheila Berry was the winner of last week’s drawing.“
