Any thoughts on how to use it?
A kick of citrus!
Elk Cherry Terrine!
Wash it down with a fresh berry lemonade served mason jar style!
Lawrenceville, PGH, PA
There’s a new kid on the block- the Lawrenceville Farmers Market. This new kid is on the smaller side, but his personality is big!
There’s a booming voice that makes the Saturday morning feel like a trip to the auction house. There’s a girl by the name of Meadow who has a vision and a love of dirt.
There’s plenty of pretty produce to take home!
Pittsburgh Public Market & Wholey’s Market
March 13, 2011
Farm fresh, free-range eggs, Amish butter and chicken (not pictured bc how good would raw chicken look in this spread?!?) from Wholey’s Market
Meat sticks! Toulouse and Hungarian Paprika (smoked and ready to eat) from the Pittsburgh Public Market, specifically from the Crested Duck Charcuterie
Some of those ingredients became QT Pi(e)s! Can you guess which ones? I had a different pie plan in mind, but inspiration hit me on the spot.

Pittsburgh Public Market
I thought about it, and then decided, how could I possibly go wrong with a new bacon each month? It was really the lapsang souchong that lured me. Stay tuned. My bacon starts in February! For more on my bacon suppliers, check out their site.
Then I continued around the market for some new things to try.
It finally arrived on the locavore and foodie scene: The Pittsburgh Public Market!
Here are my (Quelcy) first purchases…

Open Thread is an arts & literary service organization based out of Pittsburgh, whose books, events, and online presence highlight emerging artists and writers from Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. The Pittsburgh SPF is Pittsburgh’s annual small press festival, organized by Open Thread, sponsored by AIR: Artists Image Resource, and supported in part by The Heinz Endowments. The QT Pi(e) Project was one of the artisanal vendors on site.
The Pie Preparation
Erin was the head pie girl for this event as I (Quelcy) was away camping in Allegany State Park. Erin added new flags to our supplies and experimented with some new packaging ideas.
As inappropriate as it sounds, the Strip District is a neighborhood in Pittsburgh that still maintains a lot of locally owned shops and restaurants. It is also the host of the Farmers at the Firehouse market. Here is another glimpse at market procurements.
