Are You Ready for Fall? Get a Taste of it This Week at the Market!

Now that summer has officially come to a close, we’re looking forward to sharing many fun filled, cool autumn weeks with you all. We are excited to announce the winner of the baby pygmy goat naming contest!  Congratulations to Jenni, age 12, for the winning names of Max and Morris.  Make sure to claim your prize this Thursday at the info tent!

We have a fun salsa and green bean canning demo in store for you this week!  Come on by to learn the basics of hot water bath canning and pressure canning at 4:30pm.  And parents, we hope you’ll join us again this week for the Oakley Library 5pm children’s story time.  Enjoy music this week from original indie folk rock musician Tristan Buie-Collard.

Come get your apples!  Enjoy the first arrival of pink lady apples from Whispersholler Farms.  Spread a little coconut chevre from Looking Glass Creamery for a great after school snack!  Delight in the late summer harvests of winter squash varieties, green beans, sweet potatoes, and new crops of greens such as lettuces, tot soi, and hydroponic Asian greens mix.  Plenty of old favorites are still enjoying their time in the sun, such as peppers, eggplant, bush beans, muscadine grapes, and much more.   Remember that fall is a great time to plant perennials.  Visit Finally Farm for the perennial plant sale, and check out High Country Nursery for beautiful trees and shrubs.  

New from Bonny Bath this week are beeswax candles and handmade soaps available in four different scents, all with a base of organic olive and coconut oils, sustainable palm oil, sweet almond oil and Young Living Essential oils.

Come hungry for treats from our many wonderful vendors!  Visit Buller Bavarian Pretzels for savory hot pretzels in different flavors.  Or try Fletcher Village Bakery’s amazing tomato spinach goat cheese quiche.  For your sweet tooth, visit Sakshi for delicious glazed pecans and almonds and fresh squeezed lemonade, grab a cup of ice cream from The Chocolate Lab, or sample Rachel’s Delectables new pumpkin cheesecake.

Enjoy Vandele Farms great sale on all roasts at $5/lb.  Thinking about Thanksgiving yet?  Stop by Which Came First Farm to put in your order for Thanksgiving turkeys.
