One day last year this market just seemed to pop up out of nowhere on Rt. 56 in New Kensington, PA. Little did I know at the time how much love, family, and FARMING paved the way for this lovely and much needed addition to the local community. It is owned and operated by the King Family of Freedom Farms in Butler, PA. You can learn more about the family on their reality show, Farm Kings, currently airing season 2 on Great American Country channel or visit www.FreedomFarmsPA.com.
A few months ago, they installed these gorgeous, rustic display cases to house all of their pickled vegetables, fruits, salsas, salad dressings, etc. You name it, and the Kings are making it.
The Café also offers made-to-order meals, soups, smoothies, and sandwiches. As a side, you always have a choice between a farm fresh vegetable of the day or French fries; both excellent choices. I love their prepared salads. In a word, they are HUGE and filled with tons of fresh veggies.
Will wonders never cease?? All natural candles made with soy wax? Simply amazing. If you haven’t been to this market, please do so. Every time you visit, you will be sure to find something new. It’s just such a treat.
Speaking of treats…my son lights up every time we need milk and I ask him if he’d like to run to the market with me. I am pretty sure it’s because of this case of goodies, all made in-house at Freedom Farms’ Boldy’s Homemade Goodies. It’s always filled with fresh baked goods. My personal favorite is their cheese Danish. It’s the best I’ve ever had. My son loves to try their cookies, but he especially loves their apple fritters and APPLE FRITTER FRENCH TOAST!!! Out of this world!!
I think this picture speaks for itself and takes the concept of a blueberry muffin to a whole new level. Wow.
Have a wonderful weekend and please take some time to visit a local market…this local market if you can. Thank you King Family for your tireless efforts and commitment to local, fresh food. We thank you and we thank you on behalf of our children.
