The Allentown Farmer's Market: Here's The Beef!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Auto & Home & Life Insurance throughout North Carolina

Allentown Farmer's MarketSometimes the best laid plans go unplanned.  Before Jennifer moved in with me, she visited a few months earlier.  On our way to pick up some mundane cleaning supplies, we accidently came across The Allentown Farmer's Market.  Now, despite living here since the tender age of twenty-four, I'd never been there.  Okay, so I don't get out much.

We decided to peruse this uncharted territory and had a freaking blast!  We both fell in love with the place.  We go there almost every week. 

One place stood out above all the others.  Clover Farms Meats in AllentownClover Farm's has a stand there selling some of the highest quality meats I've ever had a chance to chow down.  While I may not get out much, I've had my fair share of high quality cuisine, working at a few dining restaurants before entering the wonderful world of mortgages.

I wrote that Clover Farm's stands out.  And I mean it.  One of the main reasons for this has to be this guy.David of Clover Farms Meats in Allentown  When God handed out personalities, he/she went the extra mile with Mr. David.  This chap has more personality in his pinky finger than most folks have when popping poppy seeds.  And he knows his meat (avoid perverted takes on that comment until a later date;)

While I'd love to list some of the wonderful menu items, I will let the pictures speak for themselves.Jason loves meat!Clover Farms MeatsClover Farms Meats

'Mr. David' is also an attendee of our local watering hole the Wescoesville Fire House! You are right on the mark about that gent. Personality Plus! As for his Biz, Clover Farms, out of this world! We won a few raffles to introduce us to the specialty burgers they prepare. Needless to say we were hooked!!! This summer the four of us will have to do a cook out, or 10!! Really great piece Mr. Sardi. Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton are great places to explore! Looking forward to more J&J explorations in the weeks and months to come!

Jason- It's great to see you've found the fairgrounds market. Working at a meat stand in that market was my very first job. It was many moons ago. (actually I was a kid working for my dad's business). I don't know that I have been back since. Have things changed since the early seventees?

Mr. Geary - I didn't know David went there until you told me yesterday morning.  Hmmm, perhaps I will join you over that way more often;)

Michael - I'm not sure, my friend.  I wasn't born until 1976:)

Sis - I've got to agree.

I'm coming to Allentown to buy my meat! Holy Cow. Delmonico's for only $10/lb, Fillet's for only $20?! Up here in Toronto we have a saying...it's worth the drive to Acton.... My better half and I have a saying...it's worth the drive across the boarder! Think of me...next time you chow down on one of those amazing looking steaks! P.S. Beef tenderloin is my fav...Just spent $120 for two tenderloins...and that was on sale! I'm so getting bent over :(

Hi Jason...Just played that video here in my office "office" and got a few, "Hey what's going on."

That beef looks wonderful.  I love it.  It certainly explains one of the reasons I'm beefy.

Dane - Get your hands off your ankles and travel here to Allentown, already:)

Kate - I love meat and the wonderful variety the market offers.  I keep pretty active so I'm not beefy... as of yet.

Jason, you guys would have loved the farmers market outside of my apartment here in Paris.  It was so freakin' cool to see chickens with heads on!  Weird.  But cool.

Hi Jason!  GREAT Localism post and congrats on your real FIRST!  Looks like a great place to go and I KNOW it's a favorite place for the guys!

And, I think I must be the last to know that you and Jennifer are a couple!  Where have I been?  I think she is just precious and I'm sure she loves you too!!  ;-)

What a great meat market, and a great write up for sure. It's great to see you happy... I understand being a hermit and always do more when someone makes me get out of the cave. Glad I checked on you today!

Of course you DO! Great to see y'all together! And I love this post, it's making me hungry for some serious red meat and making me think I need to do another localism post about something good to eat here in Austin! Rock on you two!

Diane - Looks can be deceiving.  I'm miserable over here.  Please help!  I absolutely loathe having someone so beautiful, so smart, so compassionate, and so loving... to wake up to each morning.  Yes, I'm more tongue in cheek than a Wimbledon Tail-Gate Party;)

Good job on the Localism post - looks like an excellent place, although odd that they only accept green eyed children as payment.  Love the video - looking forward to the sequel.

Clover farms is a joke. Ran by a pill head and degenerate gambler who hides everything from his wife. Supporting this stand is like supporting your local drug dealers

Gordon,

Apparently after all these years you know more about them than I.  Fair enough.  I was only highlighting the meat and my particular experience there.  As far as any pill habit or issues with the wife, not my business.  Plus, it does say a thing or two that you tracked down this archaic blog and felt the need to comment.  That written, I don't support my local drug dealer ... unless they deal in pot which I don't think should be illegal.  I was simply writing a post concentrating on the meat.  Obviously, you may miss said meat in some shape or form.  Take a pill.  God is just.
