One Last Hurrah
Last call for fresh curds! Murphy Farms will be out to load you up with their variety of fresh curd options.
One Last Hurrah
Hold tight, the end is almost here...
Just one market remains before we call it a season. A final Saturday to load up and say your farewells as you take one last stroll through the market aisles.
Starting with apples, stock up on tasty Honeycrisps from Ten Eyck Orchard, grab a bag of sauce apples from Pleasant Springs Orchard and then at least a gallon of fresh apple cider from Atoms to Apples (pictured) for the freezer, maybe two.
Speaking of freezer space, Highland Spring Farm, ParKelm Farm & Bryant Family Farms will be on hand to load you up with beef, pork and poultry, not to mention farm-fresh eggs.
A visit to Open Kettle Farms & Bonde Bee are warranted to load up on maple syrup and honey, respectively. For more honey options, swing over to B's Honey for both varietal honeys and special this week, ornamental wreaths perfect for the holiday season.
Fresh cranberries are another holiday season necessity, thankfully Wetherby Cranberry Co. will be out to load you up on both fresh and dried berries.
Next stop by Ernie's Homemade Hot Sauce & What Got Gathered (pictured) to add some flavor and spice to the stockpile, with a great selection of sauces, vinegars and ferments to choose from.
It wouldn't be a final market in Wisconsin without some cheese. Murphy Farms will be out to satisfy your squeaky fresh cheese curd demands, along with yummy cottage cheese and beefsticks. Landmark Creamery will also be on hand to send you off in style with their great array of artisan sheep & cow's milk cheeses.
Onto bread and pastries, another comfort food necessity of a market send-off. Honey Bee Bakery will be out with their scrumptious cookies, tarts, pastries and more (pictured). Stella's Bakery will also be joining us and can give you one last Spicy Cheese Bread fix. Also, don't miss your last chance to grab some fresh made tortillas and more from Tortillas Los Angeles.
Of course, we don't want to overlook all that farm-fresh produce that's brought you back week after week this season.
We've got a great crew of growers signed on for the final week. Certified organic producers, Happy Valley Farm & Emerald Meadows Family Farm will be out, flush with fresh potatoes, beets, squash and more. Sai's Garden & Shoua Lee Vang will be on hand to load you up on fresh cabbage, celery and Brussels sprouts, while Perez Produce can hook you up with sweet and hot peppers and more.
Finally, this is the last call for cookbook lovers to grab a copy of the brand new "Dane County Farmers’ Market Cookbook: Local Foods, Global Flavors" by Terese Allen. Whether you're looking for inspiration as you pass the winter till next season, or you know someone who'd love it as a gift this holiday season, this book is ideal for dreaming of market season while you make something delicious.
Dress warm, bring extra tote bags and ready your "goodbye", "til next season" and "have a good winter." We won't be gone too long, but for now we've got one last chance to savor a beautiful market morning.
See you at the final market!
As a reminder to everyone, dogs are prohibited within the market area, though we welcome service animals at all times.
