A Year in Review
Snipped Beans That excellent autumn/winter produce is among us: succulent northeastern pears, juicy citrus fruits like navels and blood oranges, butternut and other winter squashes, and of course apples, apples, and more apples! What great items to have for our winter holiday celebrations.

And speaking of celebrations, New Years is right around this corner. Another is year behind us and what a successful year it's been for The Market. Being responsible for most of the tech-related things here as well as the entire produce department, it's been a really BUSY year for me as well (the reason for fewer produce blogs). Besides fun things like setting up our new labeling system, updating web pages, etc., I was there to help open our sister store in Gladwyne. From setting up registers (and getting the products entered in), their web pages, labels, menus, printers, scales, The Gladwyne Market has kept us all busy indeed!

This had me thinking about what it is that separates us from other markets: convenience and attention to the details that make your lives easier. Some signature products are our soup mixes, green beans which have been snipped and washed for you in advance, shucked corn on the cob, asparagus with the bottoms trimmed off already, sliced melons... and this is just in produce. And of course, all of our catering and party platters.

I'm excited to see what the new year brings us!
