Just two markets left before we close up for the season!
It's a scary thought. 

Thankfully there's nothing scary about getting out and enjoy the markets that remain to us. 
There's still tasty caramel apples from County Line Plants & Produce to bite into, bags of Farmer Johns' Cheese curds to squeakily eat and fresh baked Chris & Lori's Bakehousescones to enjoy as you stroll through the market. 

While we're celebrating Halloween this weekend, it's not too soon to stock up on supplies for Thanksgiving. Plenty of feast supplies are to be found, like cranberries from Wetherby Cranberry Co., roots from JenEhr Family Farm, sweet potatoes from Don's Produce and winter squash from Blue Moon Community Farm.  

It's gonna be a little cool for the penultimate market this weekend, but don't let that keep you from enjoying what's left of the 2017 season. We hope t...

Plenty of turnips and other winter roots from JenEhr Family Farm

Three precious market remain to us, and with any luck, we'll have great weather to send off the season with. 

A rainy market last weekend couldn't stop our loyal fans from making the trek out to get their fall favorites. Without a major frost yet, the options for shoppers were far greater than we usually see this time of year. 

Bright red and yellow bell peppers from Crossroads Community Farm were as immaculately beautiful as they were crisp and delicious. Ripe tomatoes, zucchini and eggplant from Happy Valley Farm looked like they came right out of peak summer, and with the frost on the way, they were not to be missed!

Of course the end of market season, doesn't just mean saying farewell to fresh seasonal produce, but to our dairy & meat favorites too! Many shoppers have been enjoying that delicious cottage cheese from Murphys Farm.  Other market shoppers have been stocking up on their favorite flav...

Fruit pies from Honey Bee Bakery

A little rain couldn't keep us down at market this past Saturday. The spotty showers only served to make the produce bounty shine the brighter. 

Bags of crisp apples from Ten Eyck Orchard came in many varieties from delicious fresh eating apples to cooking varieties great for pies or putting up applesauce. 

Yang Family Produce brought us in some wonderful buttercup squash, a tasty variety of winter squash great for roasting and soups.  The truckload of pumpkins from Don's Produce made its first visit of the season, with many good carving pumpkin to be found. 

The cooler weather does put us in the moody for some comfort food, like homemade garlic bread made with a fresh loaf from Cress Spring Bakery, garlic from Shoua Vang, and one of the many varieties of Farmer Johns' Cheese.

We hope you enjoy the last four markets of the season, with enough time left to load up for the winter and try a few new things while th...

Bouquets of statice flowers from Ka Vang Thao look great fresh and dry wonderfully too!

The market was packed to the gills this past Saturday, and there could be no better way to send off such a bountiful September. 

We had every stall filled and even a few vendors plugged into some extra spaces as we enjoyed a sunny market day and with 47 total vendors, it's safe to say it was the busiest market of the season!

It was a great day to stroll the market with a flaky treat from Madison Sourdough as you scope out the deals of the day. 

The first pumpkin bouquets from Country Bloomers Greenhouse were a delight to see, especially those nice white pumpkins. Beyond the decorative, pie pumpkins and winter squash are coming in from several of our produce vendors. 

Blue Moon Community Farm brought us some great fall spinach. With some relief from the summer heat, the fall greens that are coming in, like kale, spinach and lettuces, are as tasty as any time all season lon...
