Burn Nice and Slow


Summer's sweltering heat has reared its head again this week, pushing us close to 90° and having many of us eager for the cooler fall days to come.

While we at the market know the gifts of the fall season well, we've got our fingers crossed for a slow burn to the remainder of the summer.


Hot days may wear, but who cares when you can relax with a slice of fresh watermelon from Emerald Meadows Family Farm or bite into a crisp Early Gold apple from Ten Eyck Orchard (pictured).


The overflowing tables of our produce vendors stands show the upside of those hot summer days. At the Happy Valley Produce stand baskets of green & purple bell peppers overflow next to scrumptious looking fennel bulbs (pictured).

It's not just fresh produce that lives in boom times come late summer. The field harvest makes its way into the latest tasty ferment from What Got Gathered or a seasonal scone from Chris & Lori's Bakehouse.


As we move closer to the fall session of market, we won't be able to hold off the tide of cooler days and falling leaves forever, but for now we'll soak up that sunshine, eat up the bounty of the summer and revel in what soon will be gone.


Before we send you off to market for the week, we'd like to remind you all that the market offers free masks at the Information Tent. As the number of Delta variant COVID cases increase, we are happy to continue to provide masks to customers who would like one as they shop.


See you at market!
