Highland - November 3


The Barryville Farmers Market closed shop at their Route 97 outdoor location on Saturday the 24th for the season.

It was a great season finale with all the vendors selling their produce and products, free hot cider, and a rock band. The Market enjoyed a very successful season attracting a lot of shoppers and visitors and now their online store is already open for Thanksgiving shopping handled much in the same manner as the Victory Garden Project last year which unfortunately doesn't seem to be happening again this coming winter.

Right now you can order from the same Barryville Farmers Market vendors and other purveyors, in fact you can order everything you need for your Thanksgiving feast from the comfort of your living room couch from over twenty different local farms and small businesses offering one hundred fifty four choices including fresh locally sourced seafood.

Get a wonderful fresh turkey from Hilly Acres, all your veggies from Beaver Dam Brook Farms and Hidden Acres Farm, Beach Lake Bakery's fantastic pies and breads and stuffing, Stickett Inn's Cider, Marley's Mushrooms ten varieties of extraordinary mushrooms and wash it all down with Cooper's Daughter locally distilled organic Pumpkin Spiced Vodka.

The Market's website is a testament to the amazing array of exceptionally fine artisanal products that are now being successfully produced and marketed because of the community's consumers support. The Market's website also features an opportunity for shoppers to donate to a local family in need.

This donation feature during the Covid-19 pandemic has been crucial for local food programs and pantries to receive much needed freshly prepared meals from the A Single Bite Foods paid for by the Barryville Farmers Market's donations.

You also will be able to make a donation directly to the Barryville Farmers Market to help defray their operational expenses for the Market which is one of the newest not for profit all volunteer organization and a real game changer for the Town of Highland community.

The online Thanksgiving Market usually sells out rather quickly and is now open for pre-orders only, so order now while the supply lasts for the best selection.

The Market will have a drive thru pick-up on Saturday, November 21st at the Route 97 location. For more information and shopping visit barryvillefarmersmarket.org or email them at info@barryvillefarmersmarket.org.

There is a Soup and Chili Sale taking place to benefit Lois Fahnestock of Eldred who is undergoing treatment for Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

The Sale will take place on Tuesday, November 3rd from 10:00a.m. until 7:00p.m. at the Eldred Fire House-6 Proctor Road (next to the Highland Town Hall) The soups and chili are homemade and a 16 oz container of chili is $8.00 and a 16 oz container of soup, with many varieties, available is $6.00.

So, since its Election Day you can stop by the Soup and Chili Sale after voting at the Town Hall next door. If you would prefer to donate, please make your check payable to Lois Fahnestock. Let us all do what the Town of Highland does best-take care of our own and support her family when trouble strikes.

Now that Daylight Savings Time has ended and we- well I'm sure some of us remembered to turn all the clocks back one hour last Saturday night, it is also the time to check the batteries in your smoke and carbon detectors. That little beep will save many lives!
