Taste the flavors of harvest at Buehler’s

Buehler's Fresh Market - Fresh Harvest Market

We would like to introduce to you our Fresh Harvest Market. We are offering more than 200 local products, from producers ranging from Smith Dairy, Hillandale, Hartzler’s, Hirzel Canning, Walnut Creek Foods, Homestead Springs, The Brew Kettle, Maurers, Zellers, Hickory Harvest, Sauder’s Eggs, Red Run Bison Farm and Biscotti Family Winery—just to name a few.

We take extra care to rotate our local produce three times daily, to extend the life of your Grow Local options.

Did you know that it has been said that foods at Farmer’s Markets are known for being too ripe and not meeting all food safety standards, especially without proper refrigeration? Produce should always be properly refrigerated within two hours or within one hour if the temperature is more than 90 degrees. (Source: Food Insight)

Historically, we have been committed to only working with producers who implement responsible farming. Our farmers go the extra mile to research and grow varieties that are the tastiest. They tend to their fields all-year long. It takes a year’s worth of planning to help preserve the environment to ensure that we always have a quality crop. That’s why at Buehler’s Fresh Foods you will always find that our local foods are kept safe by being properly handled and stored as they make their way to your dinner table.

“Buehler’s has been a great partner to work with. We have been with them since the beginning,” said R. Maurer, a local farmer who provides produce to Buehler’s.

Being a family-owned business, unlike most supermarkets, we also understand how precious it is to spend time with family. We do the hard part for you by only partnering with the best top local producers—that way you don’t have to shop from store to store to piece your grocery list together. We bring it to you.

We also realize that so many people still don’t know the difference between organic and local foods. To help you see the difference, organic food must follow strict guidelines, such as pest control and crop nutrients that must be managed through natural physical, mechanical and biological controls. Meanwhile, local food must be delivered less than 400 miles, according to Time magazine. The best part about Buehler’s Fresh Harvest Market, is that you can find both organic, such as our Amish-grown Greenfield Farms, and local foods, with your choice of more than 200 foods, to select from all under one roof.

At Buehler’s our local produce is always hand-picked to avoid bruising, and to ensure that our products meet consistent quality standards as part of our quality control. To name a few, our tomatoes can’t have cracks and they must be the right color and shape and picked straight from the vine at the peak of freshness, and our corn is picked in the morning and delivered within 24 hours to all store locations, and is regulated in a cooled environment to ensure integrity and taste. We don’t add any chemicals, sprays, or additives to our locally grown products, just as nature intended.

Corn and Tomato Pasta Salad Recipe

Tomato Corn Salad In Bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups dried bow-tie pasta
  • 2 fresh ears of corn or 1 cup whole kernel frozen corn
  • 1 cup shredded, cooked chicken
  • 1 large tomato, seeded and chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 -3 tablespoons purchased basil pesto
  • 1 tablespoon chicken broth or water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Snipped fresh basil

Directions

  1. In a Dutch oven, cook pasta according to package directions. Add corn during the last 7 minutes of cooking pasta. Return to boil and continue cooking. When pasta is cooked and corn is crisp-tender, drain pasta and corn in a colander. (If using fresh ears, it may be easier to remove the ears with tongs, and then drain the pasta.) Rinse pasta and corn with cold water to stop cooking, and drain well again. If using fresh corn, cut the kernels off the cobs.
  2. In a large bowl combine pasta, corn, chicken and tomato.
  3. For dressing: In a screw-top jar, combine the olive oil, vinegar, pesto, chicken broth, salt and pepper. Cover and shake well.
  4. Pour dressing over pasta mixture; toss gently to coat. Chill, covered, for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and basil before serving.

Shredded chicken makes this salad hearty enough to serve on its own for dinner.
