One Last Hurrah


Beautiful winter squash from Happy Valley Farm

One Last Hurrah

Through wind, rain, heat & snow, we've braved all sorts of weather to bring you the best in fresh food, produce and flowers this market season. Now we are down to one final market day to load up on our favorites before we put the market to rest for the winter.

We'll have a smaller group of vendors for the final week, but there's still plenty to take home and stock up on. So load up on Ten Eyck Orchard apples (pictured) or the tasty chicken from JenEhr Family Farm. There's still time to get your favorite cheese from Dreamfarm or some of their wool to keep you busy knitting through the cold months. A little snow on the ground is nothing to fret over when the reward is Murphy Farms cottage cheese or fresh fennel from Emerald Meadows Family Farm. We'll be bundled up, with thoughts of roasted sweet potatoes from Blue Moon Community Farm to give us the inner warmth we need. Thoughts of sweet potato tacos atop Tortillas Los Angeles tortillas can keep you going all day. To all of you sad to say goodbye, don't miss out on your last chance of 2019 to get those market favorites! We'll be missing you all winter, so come show us some love and support while you can. See you at market! Ben Zimmerman Market Manager
