Treated to last... decorative pumpkins and squash from County Line Plants & Produce
Cooler days, longer nights, grey skies and rain...at this point an extra flannel just isn't going to cover it.
The change isn't easy this time of year, but boy are we thankful we have many delights from the market to bring warmth into our kitchens and homes.
Spend those extra hours indoors making the ever classic cabbage rolls with fresh green cabbage from Natalie's Garden & Greenhouse (pictured).
For those working hard outdoors in these cooling days, fuel those labors with fresh cheese curds and beef sticks (pictured) from Murphy Farms.
Market season wraps up in early November, but there's still time to put up some of your favorites. Whether it's making kale chips, roasting winter squash/pumpkin seeds, or making kohlrabi sauerkraut, the market is here to make those ambitious plans come to light.
Another fall favorite, whether for home use or as a gift for the upcoming holidays, is homemade raspberry jam, made with fresh fall raspberries from Yang Family Produce (pictured).
We've got a rainy market coming our way Saturday, but that shouldn't stop us from making the most out of this last handful of market days.
This weekend is also the last chance for our FoodShare shoppers to match up to $20 of their purchases with the Double Dollars program for the 2023 season.
So grab those slickers, umbrellas and galoshes and join us. Trust us when we say, after a quick trip to market on a rainy fall day, everything at home afterwards will feel extra cozy.
See you at the market!
As a reminder to everyone, dogs are prohibited within the market area, though we welcome service animals at all times.
