Couple of Cuties

The best salve for cold days is delicious cheese, thankfully Landmark Creamery has you covered.


Couple of Cuties

Two is not such a lonely number when you're surrounded by friends and neighbors at the market.

Our tears for season's ending can be staved for a few more weeks as we take in the last good days of the 2023 market season.

When it gets cold, we go hot with a little help from fresh habanero peppers from Perez Produce (pictured). Warm your kitchen and your soul with a batch of this delicious carrot habanero soup, packed with flavor and just enough heat to pretend winter isn't knocking at the door.

We've got a long winter ahead, with many layers to add before we get to true cold. That being the case, don't sweat indulging in a scrumptious piece of pie. Grab some yummy baking apples from Atoms to Apples and some fresh cheddar cheese from B. Kurt Dairy for this marvelous apple cheddar pie recipe. An extra slice of cheddar served alongside won't go amiss, but this pie steals the show with cheddar baked right into the crust!

Now that we're immersed in November, the holiday season is just around the corner. You will find plenty of tasty gift offerings at the market over the next two weeks, perfect for those who like to gobble up their gifts. For the aspiring chef in your life, grab a copy of "The Dane County Farmers’ Market Cookbook: Local Foods, Global Flavors" by Terese Allen, packed full with locally inspired recipes, stories and more.

If the holiday table is already on your mind, stop by Steppin' Out Foods for some tasty canned goods (pictured), perfect for those relish trays.

These last two weeks of the season have plenty left to offer in the produce department, with bountiful root crops, winter squash, fall greens and more to fill out any meal.

While eating your veggies is important all year round, don't sleep on your last chances to indulge in a Honey Bee Bakery hand pie or a Pain au Chocolat from Madison Sourdough as you shop the market.

You may still need some warming up post market, but Ernie's Homemade Hot Sauce has you covered with their spectacular mild and hot kick sauces. These clever concoctions bring so much flavor, even beyond the heat, that you'll find yourself adding them to eggs, wraps, soups, sandwiches, and just about anything you can find before you reach the bottom of the bottle.

We hope you'll join us this weekend and next as we take in these last two markets. Cold mornings aren't always fun, but at least at the WCM, they're delicious.

See you at the market!
