This is Tony VanMeter, or as the kids say, "The sausage guy." Go ahead, wave back at Tony. You know you want to. His market booth is across from ours. Tony has been with the Chillicothe Farmers Market for a long time. Just how long I have no idea, but it's been longer than my four years. At least six I'd say since I remember buying sausage from him before we moved here.
Tony sells the most awsome pork! In fact, it's yummy to the max!! We especially like his sausage patties, which I made sure to buy this morning since tomorrow is Mother's Day and I'll be served breakfast in bed. (No, that's not a hint to my troops. History has been pretty consistent with how my Mother's Day will begin.) Every piece of pork we've brought home from Tony has been absolute heaven! I don't know if he babies those hogs, sings to them, or what...but whatever he's doing has been producing some very tasty meals in our home for years.
While I was at the market I made sure to visit Two Roasting Joes for my cup of coffee. I also picked up a yummy strawberry cake with strawberry icing from Megan Farmer and some asparagus from Hirsh Fruit Farm (yeah, it's not all fruit). I figure if I put all of these yummy meal parts in the refrigerator I'm helping the rest of the family make a decision as to what they should make me tomorrow. Sausage to go with the waffles...asparagus to go with that steak in the fridge...a piece of cake for dessert...my mouth is already watering just thinking of the possibilities!
Next time you're visiting the Chillicothe Farmer's Market (and that would be Saturday mornings from 8:00 - 12:00) make sure you visit Tony and pick up some pork. Trust me, your taste buds will thank you for it! Smiling & Waving, Sharon
I'm the queen of our farm, although the animals haven't figured that out yet. My title is Head Chicken Wrangler, but most days I'm called Mom. Life is a comedy and I plan on documenting it.
