Although there are only two months left in the Saucon Valley Farmers’ Market’s 2016 season, there is still a lot planned at the weekly market in Hellertown’s Water Street Park.

On Sunday, Oct. 9, the market’s annual People’s Choice Cabbage Fest featuring a recipe contest will be held.

For just $3, visitors will be able to sample cabbage dishes prepared by 15 talented local chefs. Unique and familiar ethnic dishes such as Cabbage Soup, Halupki, Sauerkraut and Stuffed Cabbage will be available for tasting and judging.

Green, purple and white “cabbage is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamins C and B6, thiamin, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium and is low in saturated fat and cholesterol,” market chairperson Shelley Goldberg noted in a news release.

On Sunday, Oct. 16, a celebration of all things sweet and bee-related, Honey Fest, will be held.

“Victor Rush of Rush Apiaries will tell you all there is to know about honey,” the news release said.

Other vendors will have honey-related foods for sale, and Saucon Source will have a booth as the guest business of the week.

The Saucon Valley Farmers’ Market┬áis held weekly on Sundays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. through Sunday, Nov. 20, and features dozens of vendors selling homegrown produce, prepared foods, meats, eggs, cheese, flowers, plants, soap and many other handmade products.
