Two > One
November has finally arrived and with it we find ourselves down to two final markets before we pack it in for the season.
Leaves down and raked, temperatures dipping and short days all signal the end of this growing season and we're so happy we've had the chance to enjoy these Saturday mornings with you all.
As you take in the final two markets this year, you'll still find a great selection of market staples and fall favorites.
Emerald Meadows Family Farm still has a wide variety of their certified organic produce offerings, like daikon radish and tender white Hakurei turnips (pictured).
Winter squash, fall brassicas, potatoes and more fall crops are here to load up on, though if you're looking to try something extra special to add a little color to your plate, swing by Sai's Garden and grab some purple sweet potatoes (pictured).
The tail end of the season may be marked by a winnowing of vendors, but those special finds are still there to be had, like dried cranberries from Wetherby Cranberry Co., gigantic heads of sunflower seeds from Happy Valley Farm or quince fruit from Pleasant Springs Orchard.
An extra special offering from last weekend was quark cheese from Dreamfarm (pictured), truly one of those unique finds those who venture out early to market can enjoy.
We hope to see you out this weekend and next to take in all your favorites, load up on those market staples and enjoy something special just for you.
With the end of season just over the hill, we at least can say two markets are better than one.
See you at market!

Market on the Move in 2023
We've got some big news to share regarding the 2023 market season. Many of you have already seen the news that UW Health is planning on building a new clinic in part of the market occupied lots starting next year.
With construction slated to begin next spring, we're happy to announce we'll be relocating to the MG&E Innovation Center inside University Research Park in 2023. Located about 1.5 miles south of our current location, the new market site will offer room for our vendors, along with ample parking space for our shoppers, as well as a shaded picnic area for everyone to relax and enjoy their market goods while listening to music and taking in those great market mornings.
We'll have more details to come later in the summer, but rest assured that the WCM will remain a great fixture of the west side community for years to come. For the remainder of 2022, you can find us each and every week at 750 University Row into early November.
