Lot 12~June Happenings

Berkeley Springs Farmers Market…the area’s best Market!

We’ve definitely been experiencing warmer summer-like weather these past few weeks, our gardens and our souls are feeling gratified. The Berkeley Springs Farmers Market has been bustling and the transition from mostly plants to fresh produce is happening! Mock’s Greenhouses are already harvesting their hydroponic tomatoes, lettuces and cucumbers, Glascock’s Produce is harvesting their gorgeous strawberries and many others are displaying a nice assortment of greens, kale and spinach among other delicious spring/summer crops. There are still plenty of herbs, hanging baskets, vegetable and bedding plants, so it’s not too late for those! Organic milk in returnable glass jars? Organic, free range eggs? Yep, the market has that! Support a local farm…it helps keep our community sustainable!

Chef Damian continues to provide an unsurpassed Market Lunch! This week’s selections included: Tarragon Chicken Salad on Ciabatta, House Smoked Pork BBQ, Italian Sausage Sandwich smothered in slow cooked onions, Smoked Baby Back Pork Ribs, White Bean Hummus & Veggies,Smoked Chicken Wraps & Kind Veggie Wraps, Cous Cous Salad, Potato/Fennel Salad, Creamy Cucumber Soup…among other choices! Each week’s menu changes slightly, Strawberry Lemonade and Honey Passionfruit Iced Tea quinch the thirst on these hot Sunday afternoons…go sit by the springs and soak your toes in our healing waters!

Save the Date…Saturday, June 6th!
“Hey Girlfriend” Weekend Wine Tasting!
Maya Fredo (“the Crystal Chick”) will also be displaying her beautiful jewelry and crystals, wire wrapping while you sip wine!

“Hey Girlfriend” Weekend is the first weekend in June in Berkeley Springs and we’re having a Saturday Afternoon Wine Tasting on June 6th! Wines will be girl-centric, meaning that either the owner or the winemaker or both is female. We welcome men and women to the tasting of course! Price is $18 per person and includes four wines along with hors d’oeuvre, tasting begins at noon and concludes at 2pm. As a special “Girlfriend” highlight, local artist Maya Fredo (aka the Crystal Chick) will be here as well displaying and creating her one-of-a-kind beautiful crystal artwork/jewelry during the tasting so you can browse, buy or have her create a special wire-wrapped crystal while you relax and sip incredible wine! Call ahead please, space is limited!
We know most Dad’s like steak. And they especially like it when someone else cooks it for them on their special day. Father’s Day is Sunday, June 14th! Don’t forget Dad! You could also stop in at the Berkeley Springs Farmers Market and pick up lunch…grilled sausage sandwich, pork bbq, smoked baby back ribs! For an extra special gift…stop in to the Heath Studio/Gallery and choose a whimsical painting of Jonathan Heath’s! Business hours are Saturday & Sunday from 11-5 each week!
We love when fresh, local produce begins to arrive at our door! And there really is nothing like a still-warm-from-the garden strawberry (except maybe the still-warm tomato). The herb gardens are lush, gardens are planted and we look forward to all that Summer brings to Berkeley Springs.

Once again, we are a proud sponsor of the Summer Concerts in the Park, FREE concerts every Saturday beginning in July, 5:30-7pm downtown all Summer long.

Our Summer Dinner Menu will be arriving later this month, as will our Summer Dessert Menu. We’ll be updating our website with current menus as soon as it happens so check our Menu Page often!! Again, we’ll be updating regularly on our FaceBook page! As always, reservations are suggested. 304.258.6264

Sneak Peek: July
We are so very excited…for the first time since we opened in 1999, Berkeley Springs will have a FIREWORKS display to celebrate Independence Day!!
On Friday, July 3rd, after dark of course, you’ll be able to see a beautiful display slightly south of town (location=Widmyer Elementary) and most likely from anywhere within the town limits will be viewable!
