Located in Saylorsburg, Apple Ridge Farm has been a family farm for approximately 150 years, and has been owned by the Bruno family for roughly the last half-century.
Owned by Brian Bruno, Apple Ridge is operated “by a group of hard-working people who are dedicated to producing the best food possible in the most sustainable way possible,” according to the Apple Ridge Farm website’s About Us page.
That work ethic is borne out of a mission “to produce healthy, nutrient-dense food in a sustainable manner,” the site explains. “We produce food with a purpose and we feel as good about producing it as our customers feel about eating it.”
Apple Ridge Farm offers a unique variety of farm-fresh products at the Saucon Valley Farmers’ Market, including breads, pretzels, granola and other baked goods, pork sausage, chicken, eggs, produce and prepared foods such as salad dressing and mustard.
Many Apple Ridge Farm products can also be conveniently ordered on their website.
Untamed Ferments, which is also a SVFM vendor, is part of the Apple Ridge Farm family.
WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING AT THE MARKET?
Sunday’s music will be provided by S.R.G. Hopefully their lineup will include “Monster Mash,” because Sunday is Halloween at the Market! Dress up in costume and trick-or-treat at SVFM vendor booths while you shop. And don’t forget Fido’s costume. Market volunteers will be snapping photos of furry guests during the Halloween Mutt Strut and sharing them on their social media channels. A caricature artist will be present to create one-of-a-kind portraits of pets, kids and others in or out of costume and dogs will also enjoy the Neverland Agility Course, which will be set up adjacent to the vendor area.
Visitors can also get a jumpstart on holiday shopping browsing for gifts, jewelry and more with Artists in the Park; local crafters and artisans selling their wares at the market.
