How Long at Farmers Market:
What is Taste:
Taste is a line of cheese spreads and there is a line of infused honey too. Lisa originally had a cheese shop in Delaware (which has since closed) and the spreads were doing so well that she decided to focus on them. She started doing wholesale and will soon open online, as well. Some of the recipes are her grandmother's recipes, like the marinated asiago. She just has a love for food and a love for feeding people. You can use the spreads and honey in so many different ways, you can snack on them or cook with them too.
What's in Season:
Seasonal pestos and the tapenades are coming this fall. The honey comes from local farmers and we infuse it and it can be paired with cheeses. But you can use honey anyway really, my favorite way is over ice cream.
Most Popular Item:
Our claim to fame is the Marinated Asiago spread. It's a spread that you can put on bread, crackers or put it in pasta, salads or omelets. It's cheese but it's oil based, so anything that you would use with cheese and oil, you can throw it in.
Why Bring Your Goods Here:
We thought it would be a good fit. It's a beautiful town and area. We wanted to spread ourselves out and do different locations. We want to get the word out and have everyone enjoy the spreads. We're actually hoping to get into places in New Jersey as well. We want to spread the love.
Best Part of Farmers Market:
Getting to socialize with the customers and interacting with them face-to-face. We can get their feedback. They will tell you if they love something or how to tweak things. It's their reactions that are great. They will come back and tell us about new recipes they've used so it's always really fun. The customers always make the farmers market.
